Ordered a take out, decent size portions, although a few more pancakes with the duck and a bit less sauce would have been nicer. Food was decent enough. A safe Chinese take out, with a broad menu. Would go again.

Thought id try Peterborough's baby sister while in the area. Not so appealing from the outside, and probably done best they can with the building on the inside.
On a wednesday night was no more than a dozen diners but considering its location probably not so bad.
Service was very good and staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was also very nice although menu had a lot of crossed out items. supposedly slightly cheaper than Big sister but i didnt notice it.

I have been several times to the Imperial Bento at Thorney and the experience is always a good one. On this occasion a number of friends joined me. From the outside the restaurant is not at all inviting and looks pretty much like a service station but the staff are really helpful and very polite and the food, in my opinion, is the best Chinese Food in the Fenland area. It's a little pricey for the set meal but you can eat as many dishes as you like at each interval (starters / pre main and main / side dishes). Remember if you are visiting on a Friday or a Saturday night you need to book a table as it gets very busy.

Our Saturday evening visit didn't start out to well when they had written our table booking time down wrong. After the initial confusion, we got seated. The service was good and the food was excellent. Although I thought it was a little pricey, we have had just as good elsewhere for less. The crunch came at the time of paying, they tried to charge us for drinks we never had. It took several attempts to get our bill right. I just don't think the staff were quite on the ball. This twinned with the very old fashioned decor and sticky toilet floors have made me give the average star rating. However, I hear the Peterborough branch is much nicer, so maybe we will brave the city centre and go to that one next time.
