I've been to Chenz many times over the past few years and have always had great service. On this last visit, the staff were still helpful and pleasant but the food didn't seem quite as nice as usual.

Chenz is about five minutes walk from the station and is in a good location for pubs and bars. The decor is getting on in years now but the place still looks attractive. We went around 6pm on a Saturday evening and didn't book, but since there were only two us we were able to get a table (it was a race day in Newbury so the town was busier than usual). We chose dishes from the all-you-can-eat menu and the food was decent enough, though the portions were small.

I'd stil recommend Chenz for a good meal with friends or family. It's probably not so suited for special occasions.

Great quality/value. £15 each on a Sat night, they brought a selection of starters (none inc nuts as i'm allergic)then duck and pancakes, then you could pick as many mains as you wanted. Great. Very attentive waiters too.

Great restaurant to visit whoever and however many of you are there dining. The staff are always very friendly, well presented and very attentive. The restaurant is clean, well presented and the food always comes out at a good pace, hot and is always very tasty. Visited on numerous occasions now.

Where do you find a decent Chinese - Not here! We have tried eating in and taking out food from Chenz but neither meal was very good, despite quite a hefty price tag. We wanted a good meal with lots of different tastes but honestly it all seemed to taste the same despite the meat all being different?!?!? Newbury is crying out for a decent Chinese restaurant, If Chenz could fix their kitchen they could be the answer.

We have been visiting Chenz for about 2years. Food is consistently excellent, especially since their new chef arrived 6 months ago. Highlights are pork in lettuce, crispy salt and pepper prawns and delicious sizzling squid - well worth a try
