The restaurant prides itself on its British menu items, but the ones sampled were substandard at best. I know British food isn't considered the best, but this place doesn't do it any favours. The bathroom facilities were pretty bad & don't bode well for the...More

Went with ~7 people. Place was ~15% full that night. Two of the orders took close to 90 minutes to be brought out, mine being the last one. A bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. Waitress acknowledged the delay and said I took too long to...More

A good steak is hard to find in China. The drunken chef isn't going to beat you top of the line Chicago place, but it was very good. The interior decorating hasn't changed in over 10 years and the menus have pages with the year...More

Spent much of the US Thanksgiving Day 2014 here. It was perfect. Great atmosphere, wonderful good featuring a roasted turkey, friendly people who made me feel at home. Highly recommended.

We came here for lunch during the week. The food was ok, but very expensive. 150RMB for the small Fish and Chips? Not worth the high prices.

China is no longer a cheap place to eat out, especially when its imported food, but burger king is just up the road.

The Drunken Chef is run by a British Expat and he caters to the Expat community. As a result he as a little bit of everything on the menu which is quite extensive. This tends to put me off though as no restaurant can do...More

Literally found bugs in my food. If that isn't bad enough, the owner (we found out he was the owner later) told us that we needed to pay for our bill before we left....Obviously we refused and didn't eat bug food. Please don't go here.More
