“Standards slipping?”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

We have been using this takeaway occasionally for many years so are in a good position to notice a definite change in the quality of the food at Chop Suey House. Having eaten a takeaway from them last night we came to the conclusion that the food is no longer cooked fresh to order. We had 3 different chicken dishes and in all off them the chicken had the taste of pre-cooked chicken that had just been re-heated. In our opinion, this gives a blandness to all the dishes as the chicken just tastes like chicken, i.e it doesn't take on the taste/flavour of the dish during the cooking process. We wonder if there has been a change of ownership or are they just cutting corners? Either way we will be going elsewhere for our Chinese takeaways.

“A great pitstop.”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Whilst it's not like Chinatown or China itself, what do you expect, it's a small Chinese takeaway in a small town in the middle of nowhere.

The food however is good, tasty and great value for money.


We had a chicken curry and boiled rice (£5.20) and a large portion of chips (£2).

Recommended.

“Tired, Greasy and Poor value for money”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

If you like your chinese food cooked in a traditional British manner then this is the place to go.
The waiting area is unchanged in 10 years and there are better choices for takeaway food locally

“Best Chinese in the area”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is a good chinese, with very good service. The standard of chinese takeaways in the Stroud area is low, so this makes a nice change.

Always pretty quick and not too badly priced.
