Probably not the easiest place to find unless you are familiar with Fairford Leys, but certainly worth the effort. We booked a table at short notice and by 8pm, the place was packed and there was a lengthy queue for takeaways.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Although we are knowledgeable as far as Chinese food is concerned, we opted for the set menu - mixed starter with five items, then crispy duck with hoisin sauce and pancakes, followed by a choice of main courses (1 choice per person), egg fried rice and mixed veg included. Ample food, very freshly prepared and piping hot. Excellent value at around £18 a head.

Wine reasonably priced and we were offered complimentary coffee after our meal.

They apparently do an “eat as much as you like” Sunday buffet which is thoroughly recommended- we’ll probably do that on our next visit.

We visit this restaurant with friends two or three times a year and and have yet to be disappointed. The food is of excellent quality, well cooked and always hot. The staff are friendly and efficient and I would highly recommend the China Brasserie.

My partner and I get take out from this place a few times a year and usually you can't fault it, but this time the food was shocking. My partner's was bland and unseasoned and mine was horrible. The consistency of the rice was powdery and weird, it tasted bad and the other dish (vegetarian) didn't taste right at all. I felt unwell all evening and barely ate any of it as it was so bad. Very disappointed.

Really enjoyed the set meal. We couldn’t finish the main courses as we were full so they packed them up for us to take home. Very good service and everything was beautifully presented. The only thing that could be improved is that the Chinese tea could be slightly better quality. Excellent value for money.

This was the first time we have been to the Sunday lunch buffet. It was my daughter’s 10th birthday and eight family members visited. We arrived at 14.38 and the buffet runs until 15.00. The staff were so kind and accommodating offering to cool fresh batches of dishes that had run out. The food was lovely and the staff were kind, friendly and attentive. They made it a very special occasion and the price was very reasonable £7.00 for a child and £11.80 for an adult.

Dishes included: hot and sour soup, seasons prawn roasts, spring rolls, wan ton, satay chicken, lemon chicken, crispy chilli beef, chicken balls, sweet and sour chicken hong kong style, pork, beef and chicken dishes that I can’t remember, two noodle, egg friend rice, lovely mushrooms, puddings- apple and banana fritters with syrup, jelly, fruit and sweets.

We are all very full!!!
