Having booked a cottage for a long weekend we wanted to enjoy an evening in front of the fire with an easy takeaway dinner. We were very impressed with the Rising Sun, we chose the set meal for two which was ready in just a few minutes. We both thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes in the meal, and were impressed... More

Visited this place a couple of times when in Aldeburgh. Nothing outstanding, but the food is good, hot and very (I say very) reasonably priced, especially for the area in question. Being a vegetarian dishes are usually limited, but this place even adjusted some of their meat and fish based dishes for us. If your after quick food, this place... More

This is so like a Chinese takeaway from the 1970's it's unreal. The food was absolutely disgusting. Seriously poor. If I could have been bothered I would have taken it back.

Was reluctant to order due to bad reviews, but all ok. Food was piping hot, chips were excellent. My chow mein was good and hubby enjoyed his sweet and sour chicken.

I love chinese food, and when at home we go out of our way to use the same takeaway on a regular basis, and I am always a bit cautious when it comes to trying another chinese takeaway. We were down in Aldeburgh on hoiday, and we gave the Rising Sun a go. I was pleasantly surprised, all very nice... More

Aldeburgh is incredibly popular holiday/short break town. Can only assume this takeaway believes nobody will ever come back. Let me assure them ... based on what we had last night nobody ever will. I hate giving bad reviews but this was dreadful. I suspected the worst when I went to collect our order. The place stank of stale burnt oil.... More

Read the reviews and with some trepidation ordered a takeaway, expecting the worst. Not much choice in Aldeburgh if you want a takeaway. We had given our chef the night off as one does occasionally in Aldeburgh and had to fend for ourselves. I needn't have worried the Rising Sun food is fine. Freshly cooked as far as I can... More

Stopped in here for a quick takeaway after arriving in aldeburgh late one evening. The meal was prepared quite quickly and the staff very friendly. Not the best Chinese takeaway I've ever had, but for the money this was very good. The food was not overly greasy and the ingredients did not look cheap. I will be returning again in... More

Ok so whilst yes there was no one in the place waiting, and we managed to order quickly, we were surprised at how quickly the food came. Whilst others on here have criticised how quickly it came and some aspects obviously microwaved, what we did have was tasty and to be fair good value for money. Was good enough to... More

Staying at Thorpeness we decided to try the takeaway. Phoned through the order and was told 30 minutes. Went to collect and had to wait another 20 minutes along with a number of very irate customers. The food itself was stewed and had little flavour apart from the sweet and sour chicken which seemed to be the only thing freshly... More
