Went to the water margin for an evening meal and was confronted with the usual "have you booked" enquiry and staring around on a large empty restaurant. Was led to a cosy alcove which was so dark I used the light on my watch to find my seat. Food came quickly as a steady stream of customers arrived, not to... More

Why oh why does a Chinese restaurant try and cook and serve Thai food? We have just returned from the Water Margin and feel it only right to give a review based on our experience this evening. We are lucky enough to have been outside of the town of Driffield where we have tasted Pad Thai and Thai Green Curry.... More

Orders a couple of vegetarian dishes, the monks vegetables were really good but satay was shocking, really greasy and Luke warm. Chips and rice as a side, chips appeared to have been recooked making them inedible. I had eaten in the restaurant a couple of years ago and recall it being really good, would not use this eatery again after... More

We ordered a takeaway from here tonight, the ribs were fantastic but the main courses were bone dry, yes the meat had a sauce stuck to it but it was hardly eatable because there was no sauce to go on the rice, remind me to order an extra sauce next time so it's not like the Sahara desert! ✌️

Visited here for a family meal with my children aged 10 and 9. Their first Chinese meal out. My daughter is severely allergic to egg, the staff could not have been more caring or helpful towards us. We chose to have the banquet set meal for five of us (6 of us visited) and they very kindly let us swap... More

My husband and I came here with friends to round off my birthday after a day at York races. We placed our order for one of the banquet menus and added a couple of extra dishes. Within 10 minutes were seated and the first course served shortly after. This included chicken satay, ribs, seaweed, pot stickers and prawn toast. All... More

Although I believe it was a Chinese restaurant the dishes... More
