I have been here about six times over 20 years, always very good, consistently consistent. They have some original and special dishes. Not your average Chinese offering. Very helpful staff.

This is a most excellent Chinese Restaurant, in fact the best I have ever been to. People come from far and wide to sample the cuisine and is a busy and well liked place to eat.

We have been going to this restaurant since 1991 and the food has always been really good and we are normally not disappointed, but we had a meal there the other night and we thought gosh how much it had changed, perhaps not all for the good!! Don't get me wrong we have never been disappointed with the food either sitting down or take away but it is looking tired now. It used to be very plush years ago. Nice table ware, flowers on the table, carrots made out of things on the starters and flower bits on the plate, finger bowls to wash your hands after and a nice chocolate at the end. Don't seem to get that anymore which is such a shame because they are the nice little touches that make your meal special and it used to be a treat to go there. Obviously over the years we have seen the management come and go but so has a little bit of what Hons used to be!! Might leave it for a little while before we go again and try somewhere different. It is always busy even on a quiet night there will always be someone there but it does need a bit of TLC put back into it now. Just our opinion of course!!!

Heard many good things about Hons but left there rather disappointed. My beer glass was filthy but was quickly replaced (no apology offered). Starters arrived very quickly and they were fine. I thought the main courses were pretty poor - very sticky, gooey consistency which made me think there was plenty of MSG in there. We Ordered two glasses of water towards the end of the meal and the glasses were absolutely disgusting with dirt inside the CocaCola writing inside them which had clearly built up over some time. Overall a poor experience with surly, inattentive staff.

I have been visiting hons for many years and use it for family meals.. friends gatherings or just for a nice chinese meal.. the food is good and if you use the set menu the prices are quite good ... the service has always been very slow and the staff are quite dismissive but because the food is good I can ignore this to a degree...
