Spent just under £30 on food to drive all the way home, dish up and the curry sauce is missing. Can’t be bothered to go back. Food was nice though. Not as good as I remember but not too bad.

This was once a surperb fish Bar but since it has changed hands the food has really gone down hill. Recently had fish and chips, the fish was very small and the batter was soft, and the chips were more like scraps, very disappointed.

Have used Rainbows for over 20 years and i never had a single complaint, but after the change of ownership last year, the quality of the food has seriously gone downhill. Prices have gone up, quality of chips is terrible, really small greasy limp portions...More

Normally order from here, however last few times the food on our plates has stayed on our plates! Today, the crispy chilli beef was over cooked and tasted strongly of fish. The rice was dry and noodles tasteless. I won't be ordering Chinese from here...More
