Tonight we ordered for 5 to be delivered- after the phone call Which the women said it would be 40 mins wait. A hour went past. We then eventually had a phone call from them saying they were running late and our food would be another 20 mins. We were glad we were given a courtesy call, and just brushed... More

Eat in the restaurant occasionally, but always friendly and good. Food is excellent. Often have a take away. You can tell it is popular, you often have to wait a couple of hours from order to collection. Tip - order early.

Went with family this week. Last time I went the restaurant was beautifully decorated, now it's like eating in a school cafeteria, laminate flooring no tablecloths, very basic. The food is fabulous but the utterly soulless environment left me cold, I would order a takeaway from here but would not go back to the restaurant, shame really. Invest in your... More

I have been to this restaurant on a few occasions and each time it hasn't disappointed. The service is always friendly and the food is served promptly. The food is incredible- the sweet and sour prawns are a particular favourite and the wontons are to die for. All in all a lovely little restaurant. Highly recommended!

Great little restaurant and take away! Been visiting for years and always superb food and service (albeit a bit frank its always good!) Stars of the menu are the chicken with cashew nuts, beef black bean sauce and of course the duck. Always try and visit or get take away when visiting folks, never ever had a bad meal (even... More

Our meal tonight was the best Chinese meal we have ever had. The quality and flavour of the dishes were awesome.

Very poor service was told to order only just 2 to 3 courses as they are very busy then told there is over a 35 minute wait. Seriously do you business or not? Had to walk back out and noticed the restaurant was empty. Just didnt wok out for me so went elsewhere.

There is a reason why the waiting time for a takeaway on a busy night can be up to 2 hrs.....THE FOOD IS COOKED FRESH and it is a very popular takeaway. You can really taste the difference in freshly cooked food compared to the other takeaway in the village that microwaves their food. I ordered a takeaway on Wednesday... More

This is the best Chinese Restaurant/Takeaway for miles. There is another Chinese takeaway in Theale but this is far, far superior.
