As the title says, the staff are rude, the food is extremely poor quality, barely any meat in the special fried rice, and also a rip off for the portion sizes you get, and the takeaway doesn’t look like it’s seen a lick of paint...More

It has been roughly half an hour since eating their food and I am already vomiting, they served us raw and stinking chicken. Picture attached as proof

Standard, but full choice of dishes, and well prepared. Nicer recipes than others we have tried. Delivery prompt. Ordered and paid online with easy-to-use website.

In the snow, the driver waited, outside his car, for us to arrive home. Absolutely fantastic service, thank you China Cottage. Tasty dinner - loved the salt and garlic mushrooms.

We had take away. Dishes for 6 people ready in 5 minutes. Food was partially heated through. I had cold snowpeas in my veggie dish. My daughters chicken chow mien was no better and chicken had a metallic taste. Counter staff not very communicative.

We have used this takeaway many times since we came to live in the area 5 years ago. It has always been excellent. Tonight it was awful, given a chicken dish instead of a prawn dish !!!! I called them when we opened the dishes....More

Always excellent food and brilliant service. Food arrives early always and with polite and friendly service from drivers. I constantly return for reliable and brilliant food with excellent value for money.
