“Used to be Good but getting worse (Burnt Rice)”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We have used this Chinese takeaway for over 5 years however we are using it less and less because it is too unpredictable now. the reviewers you have mentioned the long wait time for deliveries are correct at busy weekend times you can order at 7.00pm and not get your meal until 8.30pm. So we tend to go down and pick it up to guarantee we get it in good time. However the main issue is the BURNT RICE. Depending on who cooks the meal it seems that they scrape the bottom of the wok and drag up the burnt bits on the bottom making the rice inedible. We have complained twice now about this and still it happened to us a third time. They never apologise and I had to take my rice back and get it swapped. No offer of a refund or any apologies. I'm afraid we will need to move elsewhere which is a shame because the quality of their other food is actually pretty good.

“Not what we expected!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Ordered this as a treat after having the flyer through the door, waited 2hrs for delivery not ideal if you want to eat at 9pm. Mixed starters were plentiful but at 8.50 lacking any taste. My main was very average and rice felt a bit stodgy and burnt in bits. . Husbands sweet and sour chicken came with no sauce..so overall very disappointing and lacking any flavour.
