“Vile”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a very, very poor Chinese takeaway indeed. And responsible for one of the worst meals I've ever had.

Singling out the worst aspect of the meal is quite hard to do. But the chicken balls are worthy of a special mention. Soggy dark brown batter that was, literally, oozing grease. This turned to slime when cut open and the chicken... I'm not even sure it could be called 'chicken'.

Grease was, in fact, quite a common theme with every dish. What wasn't greasy tasted and looked as though it had been kept for quite a long time and simply re-heated. Pretty certain that the spring rolls, prawn toasts e.t.c. were wholesale 'freezer to fryer' jobs too. Nothing wrong with that if it's cheap and, at least, fried well. But these were simply inedible. I dread to think when they last changed their oil or had the fryer serviced.

Only ordered from here as it was the only delivering establishment in the area. Do not fall into the same trap. It's well worth going to collect from a more worthwhile source if the alternative is this.

Do not use this restaurant.
