We have been eating at Wings regularly for about the last 4 years, and I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal. We've tried loads of different dishes, and the food is always superb, (not just nice). The staff (sisters Linda, Lisa, their parents and sometimes sister Wendy) are always friendly and really helpful. If you should want a dish prepared differently, it's never too much trouble. I would highly recommend the hot and sour soup, tom yum seafood soup, crispy pork, duck, war tips, chinese broccoli, special fried rice, ribs-in-a-bag, ribs-not-in-a-bag, malaysian prawns, crab on crispy noodles, the list is endless!! Parking is really easy in the big car park opposite.

to all other chinese restuarants. I've been eating here for years and can honestly say that the quality of the food and the friendly service is second to none. The menu is wide ranging and the family run business have always catered for any requests not on the menu. If you are bored of the standard chinese restaurant give this a go, you won't regret it.

Wings in York Road is not your typical Chinese restaurant. No special decoration, just very good food. The staff are excellent and are always helpful. It's the little extras, such as the toy box for the little children and the fact that they'll warm up the food you bought with you for your little ones, as well as serving you their excellent dishes. I can't recommend this place highly enough.,

We love to go here with friends and family as this authentic restaurant caters for all tastes. The family run business is always full of smiles and help, and plenty of regular customers. It may not be situated in the best part of town, but it is worth the effort. They do take-aways but no delivery, and get busy but the tables turn often so worth booking ahead. There is nothing on the menu that disappoints, portions are plentiful - ie one chow mein easily serves two people or more. Try it, like it and go again!
