“Good Food”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Had a pleasant evening out here last Saturday with my wife and some friends. The restaurant was very busy but the attention to service from the staff was very good. I have eaten here many times over the years and have always enjoyed the standard of cuisine.

“Always a most enjoyable meal with good service.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We now go to the China Chef when we eat in Colchester since its sister restaurant China Blue, by the cinema closed. It is well worth the walk from the town centre. We thoroughly enjoy the food particularly the seafood and the spicy wings. Service is very good even when the place is stuffed. Recently it has been extended.

“Loved it”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We went here last night for dinner, 2 adults and 2 boys, from the moment we walked in we were looked after, the staff were lovely, looking after the boys. The food was amazing as always, from starters to coffee - a lovely evening again, the spicy chicken wings were spot on, and our main courses of rendang curry, twice cooked pork, garlic prawns and sweet and sour chicken were all lovely, the kids think it was the best Chinese ever

“Very Tasty”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Took a group of clients to this restaurant for an evening out. They sat us around two large round tables that worked really well as we were able to talk easily. Food and service was excellent and I would definitely return if in the area again.
