I am so glad I have found the Unicorn. New to the area I wanted to find a good Chinese restaurant & whilst the Unicorn is only a take-away it is so good I do not mind - and they deliver!
Whilst much of the menu is made up of old school classics there are some interesting dishes on offer - the spicy squid starter is now a firm favorite with my family.
There is not a web-site and so to get as menu you have to pop in.
This is a good, no frills take-away that serves fresh tasty food - definitely worth considering if you are looking to order out.

We have tried other Chinese takeaways in Berkhamsted & Unicorn is definitely our favourite. The food always tastes great, nice and fresh. If you are ordering on a Saturday night allow an hour, they get so busy!

Amazing food! great staff and fantastic value for money! i have family in Berkhamsted and whenever i visit we always get Unicorn food. They never disapoint! A personal favourite of mine is the smoked chicken. Do yourself a favour avoid the rest of the disapointing chinese restaurents in Berkhamsted and get yourself a Unicorn take-away!

Having lived in Berkhamsted for more than 25 years, we have been using the Unicorn for nearly as long. There are four other Chinese outlets in the town, one a restaurant and take-away and quite expensive, and the one near the Unicorn has recently had a makeover. So we tried it, but it was not as good as the Unicorn. Their crispy duck and pancakes are orgasmic, as is the crispy beef with chilli and their grease-less chicken balls. Their food is always fresh tasting, with crunchy bean sprouts and and the chicken used is top quality. Plus they are a cheery bunch who run it and they even recognise my wife's voice and address when we order. Friday night is take-away night for us, and we tend to use the Unicorn every fortnight, having Indian and Thai in between. Lastly, no skimpy portions and very good value for money.

Great food, the best Chinese in Berkhamsted IMO. Beware they get very busy on weekends so order well in advance!
