It used to be awful and I stopped using it for a few years but it's either been taken over or it's upped it's game due to Chinese restaurant opening in Bakewell.

The food is not the best you'll ever have but it's not the worst anymore, pretty average.

The star rating has gone up from 1 to 3, I just noticed on the door, thankfully!

We have a takeaway from here every Saturday evening and have done for the last 2 years. Never had a bad meal and the food has always been good. Sometimes this small takeaway gets very busy and orders can be slow. Worth the wait every time, if it's busy, it must mean it's good as there is plenty of competition for Asian food in this small town.

rude staff and can't even get an order correct! Gone down hill big time! There is no care gone into the food or place no more! Wouldn't recommend!

Pretty standard takeaway menu. Quick and efficient service. Have used this takeaway many times and have always been satisfied.

We had an issue with ordering, seems the locals like to stand at the counter, even when they have ordered so we had a bit of a struggle to get to the counter. Plenty of seats so not sure why they don't sit down? Never experienced ordering quite like it as no number given - called out by amount spent - confusing. Numbers given to phone orders being picked up.
The food once we got it was good - especially the special fried rice, not so keen on the chow mein - mainly veg and a little tasteless.
