Been back four times. The first time I went I was warned it was something out of the 1970's. It looked like it needed a women's touch with some new fixtures. But believe me there is no need. The decor really doesn't matter because not only are the staff so brilliant and speak the perfect English but the food is... More

I lived in Harlow for 3.5 years and all the years I did, I went to another Chinese high end restaurant in Old Harlow which I was extremely happy with, but a neighbour recommended Paklock and so did an estate agent (guess should have known better from that). "Food is so good", they said. "It's cheap", they said. "Decor is... More

Food ok, nothing to write home about, first time ever I have had special chop suey, that has sweet N sour sauce in it, and no draft beer, but over all not too bad

Can't recommend highly enough. Decor is like something from the 70s but when the food is quality and the service warm and friendly it's not important. Lovely.

Went out for my sisters birthday. It is ok, food is good & tasty. Some of the dishes I prefer from other Chinese restaurants elsewhere. The decor is dated, but the atmosphere is good, friendly & attentive staff. Was very busy, so service was a little slow, but staff apologized for this.

A bit dated but not the end of the world. I do have a thing about hot food being on cold dishes, even our own plates were cold. Starters not amazing and the seaweed lacked flavour. Duck was nice but pancakes small and cold. The main dishes were very nice but I don't think we will be rushing back.

food is excellent but decor is still the same as it was in the 1970's Unfortunately you have to be buzzed out and into the toilets. Can always get a table. Staff are average
