Had a great feed with the sizzling beef and the Kung pao chicken - and don't forget the fried ice cream

Call in and bought takeaway- food ready in Bai Marie's- good selection but you can still order from the menu. Reasonably priced and friendly service. No matter how busy the shop gets they are fast and efficient. Great Chinese 👍

Lovely food from the take away. Choice of food from the bain or have it prepared fresh out the back. Not too long a wait (3 dishes and a fried rice took around 15 minutes). Prawn crackers fresh and crunchy. Service with a smile.

Got honey chicken and rice with wontons it was delicious. I thought it was a bit pricey for a takeaway but it was very tasty! Would eat here again.

We have been coming to this place on the weekends for nearly 30 years. Fantastic Chinese food whether it's takeaway or from the restaurant next door, it's quality Chinese food. The Happy Garden fried rice, lemon chicken, chicken and potato, and the combination noodles, steamed vegetables are our favourite Sunday Chinese fix. Friendly family business with food cooked with love.... More
