After five years of living in Welwyn Garden city I finally decided to visit this takeaway. I never tried the food here when it was a sit down restaurant but I thought I would try it now. Let me say i already regret my non attendance for the previous five years, the food is excellent, very tasty and the lady... More

Me and my family adore this restaurant/take away. It is the best Chinese restaurant outside of China and it also serves other Asian classics like Teriyaki and Thai red curry to an exceptional standard. I have had Chinese food all around the UK and even abroad and it has never even come close to how great this chef is.

We have eaten here tonight. The place really is in urgent need of a total refurbishment. The family that run the restaurant are lovely. Very welcoming. It has a true family feel with the son sitting and doing his homework. The food was very good! Ribs not great. But the rest very nice. Very reasonably priced. Just a shame that... More

This place, to me, absolutely nails the sweet spot of taste & value for money. In my opinion, The East and possibly Hakalok serve nicer food. But they charge £££ for that, which is fair enough. This place charges similar to all the other "run of the mill" Chinese takeaways in our town, and even less than some of the... More

I get takeaway from here on about once a month as a treat and I have to say in the 3 years I have been going here I haven't had a poor meal. I have tried different take aways but they were greasy and poor. Not here. All meals have been excellent. The family who run it are so friendly.... More

Perfectly acceptable standard Chinese food here, and service was good. A bit dated inside, and although the menu is quite extensive, with Thai as well as Chinese variations, I would prefer it if there was something a bit more adventurous on offer. But that, I'm afraid, is a common problem with all the local Chinese restaurants. The bill was a... More

Lovely staff who always ask about the family and have a good bond! Food is lovely and cooked brilliantly! The wait can sometimes be long but that's because they are so popular which isn't a bad thing!
