Worst take out I have had in my life! And to add injury, they do not even have soy sauce. Avoid at all cost

It'd help if you'd be able to tell me what you ordered and what made it so disgusting so I can look into this, and we do offer soy sauce; did you ask for it and someone tell you we don't have it ? Thanks

My wife, daughter and I are regular customers at this restaurant. Staff is friendly, food is excellent and varied between pizzas, Maltese food (like horsemeat stew and rabbit and also chinese food). Desserts are excellent (the snickers cake is to die for). Totally recommended.

This is the poorest Chinese i have ever had, no taste, watery sauces and basic menu. even the Chinese cook had to ask a European how to cook the curry sauce!

Feeling lazy, we decided to try a takeaway from here. I'll be honest, I had very low expectations and I wasn't let down. The Peking Duck with pancakes etc was not Peking Duck just plain old roasted duck. Giant cucumber strips, raw ordinary onion slices...More
