Not our usual Chinese takeaway (Peking) but a friend recommended it when our usual was closed so we gave it a try. I was very impressed with the service and we were given a free bottle of pop and and extra bag of prawn crackers for some reason. The food was good. Well cooked and tasty and the portion sizes were bigger than what we normally seem to get but the overall bill was cheaper so excellent value for money.

We have eaten in and had takeaways regularly here and have never been let down. Last visit was the other night when we ate in off the 2 course for £8.95 menu. Service is always good with food to match. Top rate Chinese .

Carnforth being the size it is doesn't offer much choice when it comes to restaurants however china essence was a wonderful find given dinner and drinks for 6 adults came to just over £100! The food was well cooked; service was enthusiastic and prompt. The food was tasty and probably some of the best Chinese our party had eaten!
