The take away service here is second to none, always ready when you collect, they offer a delivery service but we have not used it, there Singapore vermicelli is out of this world, prawn toast, and prawn with mushrooms are always first class, try to go at least one a month

Had takeaway from here for special occasion, wonderful hot flavoursome food. Good size portions. starters had ribs, satay chicken, duck and pancakes, followed by lemon chicken, sweet and sour chicken, pork dish and egg fried rice. Well tasty, looked nice and tasted great. Delivery was quicker than originally expected and rang to check everything OK.

Even though the food that arrived was good, part of the order was missing and had no free prawn crackers, soft drink or bottle of wine even though our order was over £40! Won't order again!

A little bemused by some of the reviews lower down. After moving to Higham around 18 months ago we have tried a few of the local Chinese takeaways and in our opinion Mayflower has the highest quality food, very consistent and good service too. Not quite brilliant but reasonably priced, consistently good and the best we have found locally.

In all my years I have had some bad meals but I have to say in our opinion this was right up there with the worst. I have to admit we did read the reviews on here but seeing as this was the only Chinese restaurant to sit down in when we visited friends in Irthlingborough we had little choice... More

For starters we ordered the salt and pepper chicken wings, chicken satay, spare ribs, crab claws and Thai fish cakes. Well !!!... More
