We visited as a group of 6 on a canal barge holiday. After mooring in Newbury for the night we decided an 'all you can eat Chinese' would be great! The first surprise was that it wasn't actually a buffet that you could choose from. You had to pre order each course. I prefer a buffet as I like to... More

I'm surprised this restaurant isn't more popular! The food tastes good and the service is attentive. We had the mixed starter, crispy duck and a main course of prawns and chicken with fried rice. All for a fixed price that works out less than I have paid for a take away. It also seems to have had a bit of... More

All you can eat, but takes a little time as there is no buffet. Everything is made fresh. They have the best spring rolls.

Dined as part of a large party on a Friday evening. Food was nice but the service was very slow and the some of the waitresses were really rude and abrupt. Was told we couldn't pay for drinks at the bar, they had to go onto the table bill and the drinks were unacceptably over priced. The food took so... More

We regularly go to Chenz as it is just so good and great value! Possibly a bit too much when the staff know what we drink and our starters as we walk through the door. The food is always brilliant and the staff are usually chatty. Ken and Imi and both brilliant and always cheerful and make sure you have... More
