The single worst take away I’ve ever had. Food reheated and when taken back was finally told that yes, it was reheated. Told the only food on the menu that is fresh are the prawns (but wouldn’t be willing to take the risk). Staff just...More

This is basically a chinese takeaway but they have added a few tables for anyone wishing to sit in. Food is good and prices only slightly more than their takeaway.

We live very close to the Great Wall so have tried the takeaway numerous times as it smells delicious from the outside. The staff can be quite rude, I once had a member of staff hang up on me when I phoned to order. I...More

Very good village takeaway, stopped in after finishing late and found the staff member pleasant, the surrounds clean and tidy and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was fairly quick.
