We have been using this takeaway for about 3 years and have never needed to complain. We have also eaten here at lunchtime as there are a couple of tables and a raised seating area.

We all had food off the cheaper specials board, plus a chop suey roll. All hot, fresh, good balance of sweet/sour/salt/ummami, the rice was the perfect texture, the roll was cheap and huge. Brisk service, but it is a busy takeout joint, what do you expect?

We had vegetable spring rolls which were crispy and very good. I had beef in chilli and black bean sauce. This was very salty but tasted good and the meat was tender.
Unfortunately, despite ordering sweet & sour chicken, my wife received sweet & sour battered chicken. It was inedible. She ate only the rice. Very disappointing.

Ordered food for collection and the full order was relayed back to us and confirmed prior to collection. Once we collected and got home we realised that we was missing some dishes we ordered.

Although I can appreciate human error and that mistakes do happen; what I cannot accept is that we was told that we would be charged for delivery of the missing dishes, as they were not included in the price.

Given the inconvenience there should have been an extra effort to replace the missing food at minimal extra cost or inconvenience to the customer.

To top things off, the portions were small; the food we actually received was average at best; and the complimentary prawn crackers must have also slipped their minds.

This takeaway has got away with poor standards, due to lack of competition in the area, for far too long. I’ll be going for my Chinese meals elsewhere in future!!

Went on a whim last month after searching high and low for something relatively cheap to eat. We weren’t disappointed. The evening deal of rice / chips with a variety of Chinese options for £5.99 is excellent value for money. We were very pleasantly surprised with the portion size.

We then popped in this week to see if it had been a fluke the first time...it wasn’t. We ordered the meal deal again. It came in super quick time considering they were so busy, but everything freshly cooked and piping hot. Food was very tasty, and again portion size very good for the money.

We can’t wait to come back!
