“Great meal”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We had take away from here all the meals were lovely, especially the chicken fried rice. Got free can of coke and fortune cookies which was a nice extra. Would eat from here again.

“Middling - an authentic experience but not really brilliant food”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a good restaurant but it has far too many dishes on the menu. We asked for advice from the waitress and were reasonably satisfied with the dishes she recommended. But "sizzling beef" only disguises the fact that the dish was probably cold before it was steamed in front of us on a red-hot skilleen.

On balance, we'd recommend this place because at least the WiFi enables us to post this review immediately.

We're sorry that you didn't fully enjoy your time here, but we're happy that you did like the service! If we failed to provide good enough food, we're pretty sure it's a one off, and we'd really appreciate if you could come in to try it again, or tell us what we could improve!
Thanks for the review, The Honey Tree.

“very disappointed- awful (take-away) meal”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Having been here a couple of times- and enjoyed the food, sadly i cannot say this when we ordered yesterday (sunday 26th).

We decided to order for take away- we were humming and arring about going out for a sunday meal (which my other half wanted), or a chinese (which i fancied). In the end i got my own way (but really wish he had put his foot down and insisted on a sunday dinner.

I ordered fillet cantonese- and poached noodles- other half ordered BEEF and beansprous with chips,and the prawn crackers.

On arrival back at our campsite, my fillet beef cantonese- was literally 3/4 full of onions(i bet there was 2 full onions in my dish!!) in a tangy overpowering tomato sauce with the tiniest bit of shredded beef on the top- (again mixed with this awful sauce). Now im not stupid enough to think i would get a full fillet steak for the £7 it cost for this dish- but neither did i expect (and i kid you not) half an egg cup full of beef!! I have had this dish before at my local chinese- and it was gorgeous the cantonese sauce was beautiful with pinapple, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and onions., with a beautiful sauce, and they did not scrimp on the beef either!!!

My other half- well he opened his beef with beansprouts- and there was no beef!!!!!! it was just literally beansprouts- to say we were fuming was an understatement- but hey not to worry you can have half of my onions- sorry not enough beef to share with you!!!

The chips came in like a paper/plasticy box- they were all sweaty and soggy- these looked and tasted like they had been cooked before hand and warmed up- absolutely awful!!

The prawn crackers were soft and did not taste of prawn at all- they just tasted of oil worst prawn crackers i have ever had- yuk yuk

The reason for 2 stars and not 1 is the noodles were quite nice-

Very expensive for what we got most went in the bin-we could have had 2 sunday dinners for less than what we paid for this rubbish - we went to bed still hungry.

Would never go back again- and had arranged to meet up with friends here next month- but that will not be happening!!

Thanks for the review, and we're very sorry that you were dissapointed with your food - although we are dissapointed with it too. There are certain limitations that serving food to takeaway provide, so it will never be full in-restaurant quality, but that's no excuse for what you experienced. We're working on making this better, but we can assure you that this was one off. We'd love it if you came back to tell us what went wrong.
