“Was quite disappointed with this place...”
Review of China Beach - CLOSED

China Beach
Cuisines: Chinese

Was quite disappointed with this place, which used to be much better in years gone by.

Our beers were served from small (275ml) bottles, one of which wasn't chilled so came with ice. Only Fosters seemed to be on tap.

Atmosphere was some way below par. There were quite a few small flies in the restaurant which was offputting to say the least. Whilst the music kept skipping and we witnessed a couple of staff having a minor altercation. Surprisingly for a Chinese we didn't see any Chinese staff around!

It's a shame because, with the exception of the rice, the food was adequate. Likewise the location is good for the pleasure beach and big blue. All in all then I'd classify this place as a bit of a wasted potential.

Don't ever eat here. I know that when people write reviews, people who read them usually think that they over reacting but on this occasion it is honestly the worst restaurant i have ever been in. We went to Blackpool for the weekend, and we made the mistake of eating here on the saturday night. We ordered three courses with rice and drinks. The meals were overcooked and tasted disgusting, the rice was burnt and the drinks which were £2.50 each tasted like cheap coke or panda pops. When we complained to the waiter he told the manager what we had said, to which, we could hear the manager shouting with every other word, a swear word as well as being extremely aggresive towards us. I have never ever had service in a restaurant like this, it was like walking onto the set of one flew over the cuckoos nest. This restaurant should be closed down with a health and safety warning outside.

I visited this restaurant on 24/10/09, it took over 10 minutes for our drinks to arrive and 25 minutes for the starter plates to be cleared away and this was only after we had been to ask if our main courses were ever going to arrive. When they did arrive they came one at a time with a 5 minute gap between each one and the food was horrible. The chicken chow mein tasted like bisto gravy and the presentation was disgusting. Other tables were also complaining and one walked out after the starter. The staff would not make eye contact they just kept running past but seemed to be doing nothing. There is only one male and one female toilet so there was always at least one person waiting. Just a horrible experience please do not eat here.
