We used to eat here for special occasions. Went tonight for Valentines Day. So disappointing. Service was very lacking, we waited for ages to order a first drink and gave up trying to order top ups. Food was bland with no real taste and the...chicken balls were so over cooked they were hard to eat. Didn’t even wait for the fruit platter! The bill of £52 was so,overpriced. We will not be going back.More

We have been going to the China Moon for 15 years, usually whenever we have had any of our grandchildren visit. The staff always used to make a fuss of them and they were mesmerised by what they called 'smoky fruit' - a (free) plate...of small pieces of fruit that came on a bowl of water with a scoop of dry ice. Whilst the food continued to be good sadly the standard of service deteriorated in recent years, to the extent that when we went in the summer of 2019 we vowed we would never go again. However, 2 of our grandchildren were visiting and persuaded us to go What we didn't know is that the restaurant had changed hands since our previous visit. The food was excellent and the service even better - the staff could not have been more obliging. We got extras of all the things we (well the children, aged 9 and 11) asked for - more prawn crackers, more pancakes etc to go with the crispy duck, even a second helping of smoky fruit! It was brilliant!More

We visited the restaurant as a gift from work colleagues. It has recently been take over by new owners. It was early Thursday evening the restaurant was quiet but the takeaway was busy. We were taken to our table and given some prawn crackers with...dip to munch while we decided what we were having . The restaurant was clean and had some nice decor . We ordered our food that arrived on hot plates on food warmers ( we like hot plates) . Our starters were delicious vegetable spring rolls and capital spare ribs. We ordered some sizzling dishes and these arrived sizzling and where also delicious. Unbeknown to us after our main they brought out a plate of fruit on top of a bowl of dry nice the cascaded over the table a real wow moment we won’t forget. We were told about their Sunday buffet where they cook your dishes to order so they are not left out all afternoon . This was our first visit to the restaurant we will be back to try The takeaway and Sunday buffet . The service was first class as well and the lady that served us you could tell she wanted us to have a great time.More
