Have been in Horsham all my life and have always struggled to find a good Chinese takeaway.
As Horsham really seems to lack good takeaways.
Tried four different mains, two starters, and a loads of sides.
All dishes had they're own individual flavours- something that seems to be hard for Chinese takeaways to achieve.
Thoroughly enjoyed all of the food ordered and will definitely be throwing away all other menus front the drawer.
Looking forward to sampling more from Jumbo!!
Excellent food "!!!!!

We've used Hong on a number of occassions below since moving to Horsham and while we enjoyed it, it didn't really stand up too well to our favourite Chinese in Crawley (Uncle Harry's). They've now renamed it Jumbo and in my opinion this is now a marked improvement on what was a fairly decent takeaway in the first place.

The ribs are a little small perhaps but the sauce was excellent. The Special noodle dish is decent (though I would prefer more noodles) and my partners crispy beef was also good. Chicken balls are also good here (and not overcooked). Chips are edible but not great (but in fairness this is a Chinese and not a chippie).

The real triumph though is the delicious Szechaun chicken. Uncle Harry's in Crawley had the perfect Szechaun, and this is very close. The sauce is thick and sweet and the chilli heat is very much present (ask for extra chilli like me!) with a very good portion of chicken and chunky vegetables.

Maybe the previous reviewers ordered on a bad night, but I have no reservations in saying this is a very good Chinese takeaway and easily the best we've had in Horsham. Delivery is pretty quick too.

I'd award 4.5 if possible.

Got a menu through the door and decided to try a takeaway as the chinese restaurants in Horsham are not great.

The starters were Ok, the squid was well cooked. However the main dishes were bland, tasteless and ended up in the bin. Will be avoiding this one and reccommend you do as well.
