If you want non fatty non greasy Chinese food then this is the place. I have been using Wishful House for years...probably to much. The staff are friendly, the food is always delivered promptly and is always tasty. I would recommend the Szechaun Pork in Aromatic sauce. I cannot recommend this Takeaway highly enough. Fantastic !

Very helpful with a freebie dish thrown in. We will definitely use them again especially as they are the only Chinese in the area that are open on a Monday

Great take way. I discovered it 2 years ago and no other is as good. Quality and portions are great. Helpful and will make almost anything on request. They deserve all the success.

Excellent Chinese, rated 5 for food hygiene. I would say it's the most authentic in Penarth. It's great the the food is not greasy too, as other take-aways in Penarth have been rather greasy. Great service and reasonably/well priced.
