The food is amazing, some of the best Chinese food I've eaten. Occasionally there is a slight language barrier with the waiting staff but they've always been friendly. It doesn't look much from the outside but you will not regret a visit after tasting the quality of the food.

Have eaten here a couple of times and personally I rate it as average. My girlfriend loves it. Booked a table for 7 pm and was told we would have to wait 10 minutes despite being courteously on time and the place being half full. Having been offered no option of drinks or seating. I enquired should I wait inside... More

We went here as a recommendation and it was definitely well recommended!!! There were 15 of us and the restaurant was full, mostly Chinese eating, the food was hot and obviously cooked fresh as it came out as it was cooked! Everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ate and they were happy to give us containers for the... More

Really enjoyed dinner here - ate midweek and a few tables were occupied, mostly by Chinese people which I took as a good sign. The menu has quite a few vegetarian dishes including the vege duck with pancakes that I chose. Delicious, good value and great service.

Popped in for set lunch (£6.90 for three courses). I chose spare ribs which were tender with delicious sauce, followed by Singapore Noodles. Finished with crisp banana fritters and syrup. Service was quick and efficient.

Took some friends who were visiting us from outside the area. Was surprised to find a set Christmas menu for £25 a head available as hadn't realised this. All 4 of us ordered this. It was amazing, all freshly cooked and beautifully presented, lots of it, so much we couldn't eat it. 3 courses, very fresh, tasty and all of... More

On business on my own so fancied a Chinese, used TA to locate a restaurant close to my hotel. Chose Taste of China. The first impression was that it was clean and well lit, but the biggest plus was the number of Asian people eating there. Now that has to be a big tick in any Chinese restaurant. I ordered... More

We landed here after looking for a Chinese nearby. All green outside, the place inside was ok though. Service was good, crispy Duck ok, average chicken dish and fried rice, nothing else worth remembering. We got out as it was getting more full and louder at the back.
