The concept is good - all you can eat but ordered fresh so nothing sits under heaters for 3 hours but is prepared in the kitchens from scratch. The reality is a bit of a car crash. The food is fine, nothing exceptional, but decent enough. The service though is appalling; simple orders like boiled rice take 30 mins to... More

Last Sunday my partner and I visited Coventry and as we were in the mood for a Chinese we stopped at the China Red restaurant. Very bad decision. The food was horrible. We could barely taste it. The waiter did not even care. I have never seen so bad food and so bad service in my life. I would have... More

So, where do I start? We arrived to sit down to a really wobbly table and ordered drinks. Turns out the restaurant also sees itself as Coventry's top venue for mediocre singers and insists on them continuously singing. We, unfortunately, were sat directly under a speaker which meant we could only hear the singers and not each other. We ordered... More

Absolutely awful, which is a shame as our last visit a year ago, it was pretty good and I always preferred it to other local chinese resaurants. 4 of us went and although the price is £15 per head, the food quality and quantity is disgraceful. We decided to share starters and we ordered mini spring rolls and chicken satay... More

The staff welcomed us with smiles. The restaurant was very busy. You has to go to the bar to order a drink. They did not accept card payments for less than 10£.The drinks arrived after at least 20 minutes. The waiters were struggling to cope with drinks;they were yelling at each other quiet often. The food was quiet poor, no... More

We visited mid afternoon on Saturday and the attentive service began at the door. The staff were very welcoming and helpful towards us, especially my friend who is in a wheelchair. We chose the all you can eat buffet. So nice to have the food that you want freshly cooked and not messed about with by others putting stuff back.... More

We chose the buffet dinner menu and everything is cooked to order. The food and staff were excellent and at long last we have a great Chinese restaurant in Coventry

'Right action is better than knowledge, but in order to do what is right, we must know what is right.' So said Charlemagne, king of the Franks. And in the spirit of superlative frankness, I begin with this: go to China Red in Coventry. Leave the ironing, tear up your daughter's bedtime story; save that vital email to Drafts; abandon...

Having read mixed reviews we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the value for money at China Red. The "choose from the menu all you can eat" concept is a much nicer experience than a buffet; fresh, hot, unmolested food and all of us at the table all the time. A couple of staff members... More
