Prices were reasonable but the service felt like they were in a rush to get you out. Asked every 3 minutes whether everything was ok so couldn’t relax and waiter tried taking rice away whilst still eating. Overcharged on bill so had to sort that out aswel. Chow mein was poor and tasteless.

My husband had an awful takeaway from here. It was duck in plum sauce and it looked awful before he started eating it. It was a plate of fat in a non-descript colour sauce. Needless to say he left it. What a waste of money. We won't be returning.

We have just had our evening meal here and the food was pretty good.

We were served by a very friendly waiter from Kenya who was attentive and gave us great service.

The manager does spoil things a little as he is so abrupt to the staff that it makes you cringe. He was asking the poor waitress to do several things at one time from filling up the hand towels in the gents to doing the pot wash to taking out food and drinks. She was smiling but we could tell she was harassed. Not good. She was lovely but struggling on.

Overall, good food, friendly service but an uncomfortable experience because of the manager.

We chose to buy our take away from here simply because it was closest to our accommodation and regret not seeking recommendations as it was just one or two notches above pants. The main reason being the mean chicken content in our three chicken dishes. The sweet and sour should have been called “sweet and sour red and green pepper with a garnish of chicken”, in fact it is possible that there was around one heaped tablespoon of chicken across the three mains. The fried rice tasted fresh but the soft noodles had an “old” taste about them. But with a take away, what can you do? Drive all the way back to complain? That’s what’s so mean and a wee bit sneaky about serving tiny portions of protein to visitors; no enduring come back. We should have known that there was a risk of stingy portions as we saw the waitress being berated by the older lady for pouring too much coke into a glass - it was barely 3/4 full! Lesson learned.
