No doubt about it this take away is amazing - the staff are so friendly and always offer a smile. Also - regular customers receive money off vouchers - a lovely touch and treat.

The food used to taste freshly prepared and was good value for money. Now it doesn't even look or taste the same. New cooks perhaps? Something needs to change and it should start with whoever is cooking and preparing the food. I won't be back. Shame as it used to be the best.

I don't know if they've gotten new owners or if they've just gone down hill but I'm so disappointed, I used to LOVE this Chinese! Portions are seriously tiny, the food was cold and didn't taste great. Gutted. I've tried it 3 times in the last 6 months thinking maybe they were busy etc etc but I think it's time... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try this Chinese for the first time couple of days ago. Usually we can share a chicken curry and fried rice because Chinese portions are usually big. We were extremely disappointed with the portion size the full portion was just about enough for me alone and bare in mind I wouldn't have a big... More

Have had numerous takeaways and have never been disappointed. To be honest, best Chinese restaurant I have come across. I pass several to go to them. Great value for money and very friendly staff. They also give vouchers for money off which is good for business in my eyes. Highly recommend!!

Have been a regular of this restaurant for a number of years. It used to be the best Chinese in Midleton but in the last year has gone seriously down hill. Last week my satay was like water. The fried rice is not fried it's boiled rice with added egg. The curries have gone bland and there is substantially less... More

This has been a real find! The main business appears to be takeaway (which is very busy - a good sign!). But an area is screened off from the takeaway section for sit down. The food is delicious and very friendly staff. The service has been very quick the times I've been there but at the same time you're not... More

We dined at the Corner House while on a short family break and tried this restaurant based on the previous reviews. They were definitely not lying as this was a wonderfully warm and welcoming restaurant with the friendliest staff I have met in a long time. My 2 children loved their meals and were delighted with their treats that the... More

This is primarily a take away with a small, screened off seated area but it's worth it. The food is excellent and judging by the amount of take aways going out, everyone locally would agree.
