Got a Chinese from here and was really nice. Ordered by telephone and delivered when they said it would be. Enjoyed the meal and would order again

So after visiting Cumbria for a week with my family, we decided on the last night we would love a Chinese takeaway. Staying near Wigton, there was two Chinese takeaways in the village which offered a meal but everything either came with chips or boiled rice (what sort of Chinese does that?!). So after googling the best Chinese in Carlisle,... More

The food from this place is excellent. For me it is a league above anywhere else in Carlisle. Can be busy especially at weekends, so book early.

Decided to go to Eastern Cuisine express than order the takeaway over the phone and to my surprise from outside it looked like a industrial place but when entered I was shocked to see open kitchen, clean, tidy and professional English speaking staff. I was very impressed as the food is prepared right in front of you and the cleaning... More

Salt and pepper chicken was flavourless barbecue ribs were disgusting. Food was hot but very poor. Had to go and order from a different takeaway because I simply couldn't eat it. On the other hand the chips were okay.

Ordered starters and mains for 5 people. All was excellent. In particular the sesame prawn toasts, bbq spare ribs, beef in black bean sauce, prawn balls, thai red duck curry, were really good. Definitely the best takeaway asian food we've had in the Carlisle area. One point to note is that this place is very very busy on a Saturday... More

I've eaten from here twice now, the first time being a year or so ago - it was 'okay' then, but due to other places being closed we decided to try again recently. Instantly regretted it. The food was not nice... Chicken balls were almost burnt, noodles dry and bland. Staff didn't seem to care about customer service and were... More
