Probably the tastiest Chinese meal ever. Very friendly and humorous maitre d. The food arrived in very good time and at perfect temperature. The satay sauce is particularly tasty. We had a take away the following evening but have to say this was a little disappointing in comparison.

Shockingly bad customer service! The order has been regularly wrong, they always made me repeat my orders and still couldn't get it right. I've tried them a few times incase it was just a one-off but I'm not going through that again. Don't waste your time or money for an over priced menu.

Evening meal with no reservation Very busy but we were lucky and arrived just as a table was leaving. Restaurant full of Chinese folk, which I find to be a dead give-away about quality of food and service. And so it was Exceptional food and service. Many thanks particularly to the Lady in Red Next time we're near Portsmouth ........

Though not a huge fan of Chinese food, often left feeling hungry after, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of the food provided for our party and certainly was not hungry after this meal. It was well prepared and presented. Service was swift ante food was hot and tasty too. The menu provided enough variety to avoid... More

I've been here twice now. First time was about a year ago and I wasn't that impressed but this time the food was really lovely. Portion sizes are generous and the staff are generally attentive and friendly.

Seven of us went to Tangs for a recent birthday celebration. The food and atmosphere were great, the service really quick - they are always lovely in Tang's. Everyone ordered something different plus a couple of side dishes, so there was quite a lot of food on order. It arrived promptly and everyone's was delicious. My sizzling prawns did just... More

My family and I have been coming in for 20 years - previously it was a great restaurant that the whole family loved and the food and service was fantastic. However in recent visits our experience has been very different, I am not sure if the restaurant has changed ownership?! Our most recent visit the staff were particularly rude, slow... More
