We called in at Minh's en route, having located it through Google maps. As we approached my partner reviewed it on Trip Advisor, and we approached with some questions in our minds because some of the reviews were not positive. I said if it doesn't look OK we can go elsewhere. However, it turned out to be really rather good. As we walked in a cheerful waitress immediately placed a complimentary bowl of fresh, warm prawn crackers on the table. A promising start. Prices were good: around £40 for two including drinks, and portions were generous. For reference, soups £3.50, quarter of duck £9.00. The quality of the food was good, not what you would get for £100 in London, but it cost less than half London prices. I am not trying to patronise, but several of the earlier reviews don't seem fair to me given that this is a small local restaurant that is doing a good job. And from the comments of other customers, keeping them happy too. if you want Michelin stars go to Ludlow: if you want an honest, local Chinese, this is really rather good.

Went in for an early evening meal with a colleague in February. On the main street it seemed to be the only place open where we could have a sit-down meal, but we didn't look everywhere. Good service and excellent food. After a very quiet first hour, the restaurant began to fill up with larger groups of four upwards, always a good sign. Certainly somewhere to go if you like Chinese food

Went to their Sunday buffet just before Christmas. The food was fresh and refills brought out quickly. The waitress was not overly friendly. However, the food was ok..nothing special. The most bizarre part of the visit was their pricing towards children...it goes on height! They tried to charge my 9 year old daughter (who didn't eat much) and is a petite girl, an adult price for the buffet. Ridiculous! I refused to pay and would not go again.

Poor service and expensive food. No attention to detail, poor service overall. Food not to bad but small portions and exspensive
