“Disappointing”
Review of Auntie May's

Our normal Chinese takeaway was shut so we gave Auntie May's a try. Very disappointing. Food was delivered on time but wasn't great. It was hot but very sweet and really not enjoyable. We won't be using them again.

Ordered a takeaway via there app and got discount too for doing so. Collected from the shop as delivery was 45mins.
Not too greasy and all food had flavour and was tasty.
Especially like the beef in oyster sauce the prawn toast and lemon chicken! Portions are more than generous

First had Auntie Mays delivered at a friends, the food was phenomenal. Light full of flavor with an extensive menu.
The combination dishes are a revelation if you are eating alone and don't want to over indulge, an Idea a lot of food businesses could try!
Love the food from here I would highly recommend it ;)

The food arrived on time and there was a 10% discount and free delivery on the order.
It arrived in the 50 minutes stated from ordering and was nice and hot.
The first thing we opened was the mixed starters for 2 people, this was all in a paper folding box with seaweed at the bottom, prawn toast, spring rolls, satay chicken & ribs on top. Unfortunately everything was just soaked in oil, the separate satay sauce that came was again more oil than anything else.
We picked at these bits but couldn't finish due too the oil.
We ordered szechuan chicken, the chicken was slightly strange, not the same chicken that you get when ordering a curry or a chicken kebab, this had a more artificial, rubbery look to it - again the sauce was very oily.
The chicken chow mien that my wife ordered was probably the better dish out of the order, the egg fried rice looked very uninspiring.
Its a shame, maybe we were hoping for too much for £23.00?
I ate a spoonful of each and then had a sandwich instead, my wife managed a bit more than me but said it wasn't great.

We don't order Chinese takeaway very often, prefer eating it in a restaurant instead (the food seems completely different).

We won't be ordering again from here but maybe as it was a friday night we were just unlucky.
Other reviews have stated cold food but ours was definitely hot when delivered.

Portion sizes or enormous the food was very nice I just wish the quality of the chicken used in the satay was a bit better. I would order from them again but still on the quest for a pucker chicken satay
