I booked this restaurant for my Hubbys Birthday on Saturday night. He is away from home all week usualy so this had to be a good night for us. I read the reviews on here and showed them to him. We booked for 9.30pm Sat night table for 2. The restaurant was easy to find on satnav. Parking in bays just up the road. Made to feel very welcome on arrival,seated straight away. Drinks order was taken as soon as we sat down and then we were given time to peruse the menu,not hurried even though they were busy. Food was amazing,Starter platter was out of this world....I could have eaten 2 of them to myself!!!!! Sizzling Monkfish was the hubbys main course and I had a sizzling fillet steak in green pepper and b.bean sauce. Chow mein and rice to share, Crispy belly pork 2 try between us. It was so fresh and you could tell it was all home made and not a whiff of m.s.g in the whole meal.
We dont get to go out often together so when we do we like to go somewhere we know or recomended by friends etc. Well friends this we can recomend to you all. We will be going there again and again. Brilliant food. Brilliant service.Good value for money. 5*****.

We were three tired and hungry people who chose a wide range of dishes and were all very pleased with the quality of the food and service. We shall be eating here again.

The decor is a bit faded but the people who run the Excelsior are lovely and the food is really nice. If you want very good value unpretentious Chinese food then this place is worth a look. They do takeaway too which is well worth a go also.

We visited here with a couple of friends who had been before, we received a lovely warm welcome.
There is loads of choice on the menu and the food is delicious, service was prompt and with a smile.
Even though they were busy we weren't kept waiting for our food.
We'll definitely recommend this restuarant to our other friends, the background music was as it should be, not too loud that we couldn;t chat to one another, the tables are spaced far enough apart so we weren't overheard.
All in all a good evening out.
