“Could be a Chinese Truckers Cafe”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Once you get past the clash of internal ambience and actually order, this is a very good restaurant. This used to be called the Paper Tiger and was decorated accordingly, however, it changed hands yet again and I guess they wanted a cross between a school dining room and a truckers cafe. Well worth giving it a go, and they delivet

“Fab food, shame about the decor.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

An impromptu evening in Lutterworth, restaurant basic but clean and we were only diners. Constant stream of takeaway orders for collection and delivery reassured us. Food was lovely, had 3 courses and a couple of beers, came to £50. Portions were generous and staff efficient and friendly but left us alone to eat without loads of questions. Not bad at all.

“don't bother”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

This must be the most uncomfortable restaurant ever which is a great shame since the food is quite good. The chairs are like wooden typist chairs. No padding and no comfort. The place is dead with no atmosphere. OK for a takeaway but I will not go back in the foreseeable future.

“Great food!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I have never eaten in here, but it is by far the best Chinese takeaway in Lutterworth, the food is A1 - the ribs in peking sauce are to die for!!

I have to say the restaurant itself doesn't inspire me, it has the feel a bit like a school canteen with frequent takeaway customers coming and going all the time through the main seating area, so I much prefer to sit at home and enjoy the food. The takeaway food is very well priced and they usually include some sort of freebie - either an extra starter or a bottle of coke.

“Not as good as the first time we ate there”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

On our first visit to the Hai Tan we were really impressed.... Great tasty food no salty thirst afterwards.

I still like the food but now I am getting the salty after taste.

It's a shame
