My partner and I have always been under the impression that Chinese dishes that are on every take-away meny across the country were pretty much the same in terms of standard and taste - tonight, we were proved very wrong! We both ordered crispy shredded chilli beef and also ordered rice, noodles and a side of prawn crackers. We ordered online after receiving a menu through the door a few weeks back. The process was pretty simple and the food arrived fast (40 mins from ordering on a saturday evening) however delivery was a massive £2.20, despite us only being a 2 minute drive away (we were merely having a lazy night!) The take-away bag was pretty fancy and they have a loyalty 'token' system - you can use the tokens to buy branded goods and the food was hot...but i'm afraid that's where the positives end. The crispy shredded beef instead of being a sticky, chewy dish (as it always seems to be elsewhere) was drenched - and i mean drenched - in a relatively tasteless, thick sauce. The hunks of meat were far from crispy and tasted floury and tough. The noodles and rice were pretty standard fare, bit greasier than expected but tasty in comparison to the beef. All in all, far from satisfying.
We will not be ordering from this restaurant again and suggest others take heed of the reviews on this website and others online before they consider it. I only wish we'd read the reviews before we ordered! For those of you who do order and are tempted by the addition of extras such as fortune cookies/chopsticks or prawn crackers to your meal - it's also worth noting that these ended up coming free with ours - the former in little pre-packaged packs with napkins, so i'm assuming these are given to all customers.
