Best local Chinese in town. The women who takes your order is a crazy happy women! Always jokes and laughs while you wait for it to be made! Doesn't deliver but no problem as it's always hot when I get it home :)

Have tried most of the Chinese take always in Braintree and this is by far the best. Usually order by phone and meal usually ready on time. Staff polite and helpful, only negative thing is cash only as they now no longer take credit cards.

The food here is very good. Order in advance, though, because they can get very busy. Parking is available, but can be a bit of a nightmare now that there's less room at the back than there used to be. Potential for arguments!

Had a takeaway while staying at the A120 Premier Inn hotel..only a couple of miles away. Very good, hot food, well packaged..tasty and plentiful at a fair price. Parking was good to the rear of the takeaway..service friendly and fast. Would definitely use Taste of China again no problem.

always busy and orders only take 10 - 15 mins, good flavours and does not seem to be drenched in msg as many others are. Only take cash not card, not sure why this is as never used to be the case, but still the best around, parking available outside, situated to the rear of the golden fry chip shop.
