Beautiful restaurant, very authentic looking, food was unfortunately terrible.
I had a prawn cocktail to start, the prawns were warm and dry and absolutely gross.
We had prawn crackers put on the table why we later got charged for.
For the main I had sweet and sour chicken which was completing undercooked. My husband and daughter had squid was was dry and overcooked!
We had noodles that were £5.50 each and were shocked at what we got, we expected cooked noodles, perhaps with bean sprouts maybe. Instead we got uncooked crispy things. Imagine uncooked pasta, that’s what it was like, like they needed to be put in a pan of hot boiling water to cook!! They tasted dreadful. It was very strange.
The bill came to £77 which for 3 people was a lot. It was painful paying it.
I would avoid this place at all costs. Absolute waste of money. Won’t be returning

My wife and I ate here last night and both service and food was the best. The food was on a different level in both presentation and taste. We both agreed this was one of the best Chinese meals we have had in a long long time 5 stars

We were staying at the Premier Inn for 2 nights and ate at The Beefeater and the food was disgusting and pricey. The next night we went to Maxis. What a difference..The food was fabulous, The service great. They were very busy but that didn't slow down the service..Everyone was really friendly and welcoming. If we are ever back in this area we will return here.
