Why is everyone raving about Tin tins? Me and my friend went there the other day, and it was the worst Chinese meal we'd ever had. The menu is awful - boring descriptions. We ordered different mains and yet the sauce (I'm sure) was the same in each! gloopy and very disappointing. Meat very chewy. Could have made better at home sorry to say. Old fashioned decor and big screen playing youtube videos..?! No thanks.
Happened upon this restaurant when going to a concert. This is the best Chinese I've ever been to. Fab food. The vegetarian set menu was delicious - it's always hard to find decent vegetarian food on a menu.
Went here with friends and had a great meal the food could not be faulted and the staff were very nice and polite.
The quality of the food here is exceptional, and despite being very busy, our service was swift. My only gripes really would be that we requested condiments (just some soy sauce actually) more than once, but the busy staff seem to have forgotten this request the second they moved away from our table! It was also difficult to get the combination of things we wanted on the set menus, so we ordered various separate dishes to share. In terms of cost, we ordered soups, mixed starters for 4 people, 5 different main courses, 2 portions of noodles and 2 egg fried rice, and a bottle of house white wine, and it came to £30 per head (4 people) including service charge. This is a little bit more than I would like to pay normally, but I have probably been spoiled by restaurants I know that charge £15 per person for an all-you-can-eat menu...freshly cooked food, not a buffet. Go with the set meal's for however many people if you can find one that suits, as it appeared to work out somewhat cheaper that way. NB - your bill comes with 10% service charge already added. Great for those that tip as the maths has already been done. Not great for those that prefer to tip based on whether or not they thought the service was good! I didn't mind at all, as my service was generally good all evening. I would highly recommend the seafood dishes to any fish fans, and also the sizzling dishes. The location is great, surrounded by several nice bars for a pre or post meal drink.
