Thanks for your review, we were busy all night due to the other Chinese takeaways being closed and our normal good service suffered a little as a result, Ihope you try us again when we are not so busy.

Sorry you wern't satisfied with our service on this occasion, in our defence it was a very busy day but we must be better prepared for busy days.
