“Is that really chicken?”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Most dubious meat texture I have ever had, chicken was very stringy, so soft in parts but very tough in others. In summary It was disgusting. Other than the questionable chicken meat the rest was of average take away food standard. This should not be classed as a restaurant but a takeaway on the quality of its cuisine. I took two friends and both had upset stomachs the following day. Fortunately for myself I have eaten many other cheap takeaways before and would appear to have been able to stomach it better.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Have eaten here many times for special occasions and just as a couple, always great food and staff very friendly. Would recommend to anyone who likes great Chinese food. Better to book in advance as they are always full especially at weekends

“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is an excellent restaurant, we have eaten there may times and have always had a good service, you are not rushed in between courses and the staff are very freindly. I would highly recommend.

“Definitely one of the best”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

We live in the North East of England but have friends (who we met several years ago on a Nile Cruise) who live in Epping. On our first trip down to see them back in Nov. 2006, they took us to the Swan. I thought the choice and quality of the food was excellent. As others have pointed out, it is a family run restaurant and everyone was extremely pleasant, especially the 2 brothers who took the time towards the end of the night to come over and talk to us. We have been back every year since and are now greeted with a warm Welcome Back. I would recommend without hesitation.
