“So good we went twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

My wife and I had such a nice meal in this friendly restaurant we booked to go back the next evening. The first time I had a very flavoursome vegetable satay and my wife had pork in lemon and mango sauce, the second I had a Malaysian vegetable curry and she had Malaysian beef rending with plain boiled rice (she is still talking about it!). The service was excellent and very friendly. We couldn't recommend this restaurant enough.

“where has Jasmin gone”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I have been coming to Jasmin's for years but haven't been since it closed late last year so decided to go again on hearing it was open once more. Oh dear it was awful the food was cold had to send it back service was not good , it must be under new ownership such a shame the change is for the worse . I wont be going again.

“Great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I was a little dubious after reading several poor reviews but have visited Jasmine's in the past so wanted to give it a go. We went on a busy Friday and they squeezed us in - yes the service is a little chaotic but that added to the charm - the food could not be faulted we had the main menu as we felt the all you can eat was over priced and all of our party said their meal was delicious - we left very satisfied and couldn't fault the food - many thanks Jasmine

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This restaurant had been recommended to us by our B&B and we were told to get there early or make a booking. We arrived at 6.30pm and the place was already busy. As you'd expect with a chinese restaurant, the service was polite and prompt. All the food dishes we chose were nicely presently and were delicious.

“Seriously downhill since last visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

2 or 3 years ago, I gave this place 5 stars........sorry, but only 2 this time.

We booked for a party of 7, and had a great table. We dined early so were able to enjoy the "as much as you can eat" menu, very reasonably priced. Staff were totally delightful, especially as 4 of our group were not English, and we had to explain the menu to them. We had a large selection of Chinese starters and mains, so we could all share, which we did. Everything appeared very promptly, and nothing was too much trouble for the stunningly friendly (and gorgeous) waitress.

BUT....the food was not very good. Most of the starters were deep-fried with too much tasteless batter, though the chicken wings were nice. Followed by 7 different main courses, two of which were delicious, 5 others bland and boring.

I did see a notice that new staff were being trained....but by whom???

All in all, good value for money, but none of us were impressed this time, especially our 4 Dutch guests.
