I regularly visit The Fountain for delicious Chinese food. It's very quick service and moderately priced! The best Chinese in Newmarket! The staff are always friendly however the place does need updating, especially the toilets. The food is usually very good. It is also a great place to spend new year - after a meal the restaurant turns into a... More

We recently ate here for the second time. The first time we enjoyed the food but had little more to say. Our most recent visit was for a relative's birthday with a party of twelve. There was only us and another table of three on this occassion which we thought would allow us to appreciate the restaurant more. This was... More

Thought I'd treat myself to a take away knowing it would be expensive but expecting a delicious treat. The dumplings were ok. The soft shell crab was so dry and over done it wasn't edible and the noodles with mixed meat were the worst I've ever had. Mixed meat indeed if you count two pieces of chicken two slabs of... More

Not the best looking place from the outside which is a shame as it no doubt puts some people off. Inside the decor is ok but it's the food and service that make this place. We visited as a party of ten and had a fantastic time. Not the cheapest but a bill of £350 for ten people including a... More

Thought I would treat my girlfriend to a lovely meal out. Far from it!!! Found the staff rude, the food quality was very poor ( ordered spring rolls. When they came out they where under cooked and the staff didn't like be told so) and the decor of the place reminded me of a northern working man's club and I've... More
