The order was late and what we ordered was not what we got. Has put me off eating Chinese food full stop. Even the prawn cracker were rubbish.

They got my order wrong; despite me clarifying it on the phone twice. They didn't give a timescale or advise of any delays so when it didn't arrive timely I phoned them and they said they had been busy and that it was on its way. I had to phone again and threaten to cancel the order. It finally arrived... More

I've been getting Chinese take aways from SWS for years and it never disappoints! Their bbq spare ribs are blinking marvellous. I think their prices are really good value for money and whether you're collecting yourself or you opt for delivery the food is always fresh and piping hot. Defo worth a try!

My god ! The food from here is bad. And the food they send is not what you order. After a 12 hour shift I still wasn't willing to stomach the tray of slops they delivered.

I have been using SWS for a number of years now and generally it's been ok. It used to be pretty good but over the last 5 years the standard of food has been a little hit and miss, but the service is really quick so if you're in a hurry there is no one quicker. This evening they surpassed... More

If you're looking for a good chinese takeaway you'll be hard pushed to find a better one than SWS. The quality (and quantity) of their food is very good and their delivery service is excellent. The food is always hot when it arrives.
