“Room for improvement.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

What a pity the appalling service spoils this restaurant. The waitress was poor, we had to lay our own table, fetch our own drinks and some of our group had finished their meals before others had even received theirs, but, in the interim, the takeaways were flying out of the door much, much faster than diners were being served. The food, when it came, was good but we waited about an hour for it. By this time the kids were fractious and the adults annoyed.

“Small plates, is it a restaurant if the waiter staff don't get your drinks?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

I love Chinese food and Kim wah's is good but I'm not sure the dine experience is worth while! Firstly you get tiny plates to serve your food on to, the bar seems separate from the restaurant (financially) as the waiter staff don't want to get your drinks ( this is a pain when a party of 8 have to keep getting up to charge there glass) I would get a take away and grab a six pack from Henry's next door!

“Plenty to eat, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

It was a bit strange ordering by numbers, but it did solve any pronounciation issues. Very good value, lots to eat, and very tasty.
