This is the best Chinese in region. Both take out and sit down are good. Staff always friendly. Been using this Restaurant for years. Never a bad meal.

“Maybe I'm just sick of Chinese food...”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

But I was not happy with this place. The restaurant itself is nice, plenty space and the staff are friendly enough. However, there was one lady who kept on coming over to refill our water glasses. The water jug was on the table, we can do it ourselves! There's nothing worse than an over-helpful waiter.
Anyway, we got starters and mains for two of us and it cost nearly 50 euro, way too expensive I thought. For starters I had the "stuffed crab claws" which sounded impressive. How wrong I was! They looked like potato croquettes and did not taste any way like crab meat. I had the "crispy" duck for main course which was certainly not crispy, it was so fatty I couldn't eat it and left most of the food behind, much to my disappointment, and still had to pay 50 euro for it. There's a McDonalds drive thru nearby, you would do well just to go there!

“Fantastic Food, Super Service & value for Money”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We arrived into Jumbos as a group of 3 adults & 7 children (most venues idea of a nightmare!) we were greeted with a warm welcome & accommodated a large table in their restaurant. The premises was spacious, fresh & very comfortable. The menu boasted a variety of all sorts. The adults enjoyed starter then main while the kids enjoyed mains then ice cream. The food was exceptional & well presented. Portions sizes were generous & even the kids were delighted with their meals. The service was prompt, friendly & the staff (waiter & waitress) couldn't have done any more for us. For a family of 3 adults (3 courses each) & 7 children (3 courses plus soft drinks) we felt the cost was very reasonable at €106 in total. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal & should we visit mallow again we will definitely be back!!!! We actually found this restaurant on mobile trip advisor as we were visiting mallow & wanted a restaurant (Chinese) & were delighted that the reviews proved to be 100% true!!!

“over priced very ordinary chinese”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Visited here recently and can't understand why this place is highly rated. Food was very basic, over-salted chinese fare. If you have ever eaten proper chinese food this will disappoint.
Waitress was pleasant. Waiter less so. Will never return.
