Awful. Half warm half cold chicken satay skewers.The chicken for the main meals (pineapple and curry) well it was wet and rubbery absolutely disgusting.At least the rice was cooked and the beer was cold. Horrible.

We decided to go here to celebrate my husband passing his test. We had been there before but not for at least 10 years. We couldn't remember if we had a bad experience or the prices had been put up so we decided to give it another go. When we used to go it was a set lunch menu, however... More

Where do I start, apart from wishing I looked at Trip Advisor before I walked in! No other diners, Chinese karaoke blasting from big screen tv. Ordered duck with ginger, asked for extra ginger which was served with the skin still on, served on cold plates. The duck had obviously not been cooked with the ginger as very bland. Stella... More

Not from around the area, this was the nearest Chinese from our Hotel. Really looked forward to a Chinese as been on a health kick.. The dinner consisted of the smallest portion of rice possible! Chicken ball were not even on the menu , but they did cook to order, which was very kind. Usually you get 10 balls, was... More

We needed an early dinner as attending an art exhibition a little later. The restaurant was empty and service very attentive. Multiple dishes were ordered (lamb, pork, prawns, noodles). Very tasty and quickly delivered to the table. Yes the flavours and textures were not typical uk Chinese food, more reminiscent of London china town - more authentic. The decor is... More

3 of my friends and I came to eat here on a Tuesday evening. We were the only customers and probably for a good reason. They had the TV on too loud but we tried to ignore it. The food was disgusting, particularly the chicken which seemed to just be balls of fat and I was unable to eat my... More

The buffet food was terrible ... Requested for extra food on the menu the people replied in a bad manner ... Poor service and cleanliness is poor...

The food was tasty and spicy and we were given soup with 6 dishes and rice. Unfortunately i would never be able to order this food for myself.... More

Decided to try this restaurant due to its location. Three of us had been to a beer festival and wanted a restaurant close to the venue and close to the railway station and this fitted the bill. It's Friday evening, about 9:30 when we arrived but the place was deserted. Strangely decorated with fairy lights at the windows (at the... More

A great little restaurant for those wanting genuine Chinese food. Not the boring stuff that you get from a takeaway and then consider yourselves an expert on. I have travelled around China many times and lived for a short time and Bills restaurant is one of the few places where I can get the real taste. Like most Chinese restaurants... More
