The food is really good here but to get a take away is a nightmare, we tried calling 10 times and no answer when they said they were open, it's a shame I can't complain about the food but this ruined it for me

Out with some friends last night had a few drinks and someone suggested we have a Chinese. It's been 2 yrs since I last eat at the china rose and was extremely disappointed then. Must say nothing good has happened with the food, we had a set menu for 4 and it was tasteless apart from the MSG after taste and all the food was shiny. Apart from our table of 4 there was a table of 2 and a table of 1. This place has really lost it, obviously people know its not good that why its empty on a Friday night between 10-11.30. If you want Chinese best go to the sushi/noodle bar no smg there,

Why did I not follow my first instincts? It was the smelly carpets that rang alarms bells on my first (and last) visit to the China Rose restaurant in Shrewsbury. I climbed the long stairway to the first floor restaurant to be greeted by a gloomy space with three occupied tables. The service was acceptable but the food was bland and way over-priced. When the bill came it wasn't itemised and I just couldn't believe it said £36 for two chicken curries, one bowl of rice, one portion of chips, some vegetables and two pints of lager. No wonder the place was nearly empty on a Friday night at 10 pm. I won't be going back.

There are a number of steep steps with threadbare carpets to negotiate before you enter the restaurant so disabled diners may struggle. The restaurant is quite large but it looks a bit tired and could do with a lick of paint. The staff are very attentive and provide an efficient service. The food was O.K. but I've eaten better Chinese food. We had a special for two with a bottle of wine which came to about £55.00; about average I guess for what we had.
