Simons is a large house with differant rooms to eat in. It has a bar as you enter. Each table has a heated plate or on the big one a lazy susan. This is our third time over many years. Yes I agree the decor could be freshened up. I enjoyed the set meal for 2 that we chose very much, even though I am not really mad on Chinese food! The service was excellent for both drinks and meal. The staff & owner are chatty-if you want them to be. All the food was hot which is not always the case in other places.

We went to Simons restaurant Friday night - our first impression was that this nice house had seen better days and could do with some money spent to make the decor more contemporary. The service was attentive and the food was good ( except for pork with cashew nuts which was rubbery), the atmosphere was non existent- picture square room very little decor blue carpets and the piped music from an 80's supermarket.

So a decent night out but not a 4 star.

We went to Simon's, having never been before, thinking that there would be a good atmosphere and some sort of celebration for Chinese New Year.

Sadly this was not the case. The restaurant was cold and very bland (plain white walls). The staff were very helpful but were mainly youngsters, we only saw two Chinese people.

The food was beautiful and freshly cooked, although service was very slow. The food wasn't particularly cheap either.

There were no celebrations for Chinese New Year, in fact there was no atmosphere at all, which left us very disappointed especially when friends had been to other Chinese restaurants who did celebrate.

Don't think we will be rushing back.

OK Chinese food, at expensive prices.nice location, lovely big house, my food was nice , but the other people I was with said it wasn't really any different from takeaway food, think they were disappointed, they expected better.

Lovely food and exceptional service in a delightful family run restaurant. Would suggest pre-booking as can be quite busy.
