Came here with friends and had a fab night! You really can't fault the service/food! We had chicken and sweet corn soup (only slight problem wasn't piping hot) appetisers were beautiful especially the ribs and prawn toast! Ordered a selection of mains and all were extremely tasty especially the chicken curry! I would definitely recommend ordering the noodles as a... More

Called in for a takeaway on the way back to hotel after work. Crispy lamb starter was chewy at best. Mixed meat curry and rice was very bland, meat was chewy and tasteless. Two courses and a bottle of cider while I waited at a total cost of £23. Poor quality food at high quality prices. I will not be... More

Ordered the beef curry- such small pieces of beef. God knows what's going on with the chow mein I've never had a chow mein like that in my life... My partner had sweet and sour chicken but you obviously have to specify if you want the balls as he got some small pieces of shredded chicken. Waste of £25 really.... More

Dear Slianne11, Thanks for your review but to be honest i really dont understand the content of it. You dont say whats going on with the chow mein for it to be a problem. We dont even make chicken balls. Our menu has not changed in 19 years so i think you might have written your review about the wrong... More

Good value for money. We visited for the first time tonight having noticed it whilst shopping in Waitrose opposite. Bought a takeaway and food was still hot by the time we drove home (about 35mile away!) Very tasty kung po and beef curry, nicely cooked chips as well. Will defo return again soon.

First visit here, was practically empty which was nice for us. Up a flight of stairs and didn't see a lift so no good for those who can't manage the stairs... Staff polite and efficient. Menu varied and not too expensive. Décor is very dark but works quite well and looks okay. Enjoyed our meal, but the wine was not... More

We moved away from the area many years ago, so haven't been for quite some time,but as we still have family relatively near by and we're having a get together we visited again. In times gone by we always thoroughly enjoyed our visit & the food was always exceptional, tonight was as good as ever, a busy Saturday but the... More

The "all you can eat" menu was perfect for our group after doing the Great North Run : ) We had a fantastic evening at Princess Garden, the food and the service were wonderful! But the highlight was was the free lift home from the lovely waitress and her partner after we stayed too late to get a taxi! We... More

From the tasteless food to the tacky new decor this place does not impress on all fronts. The best thing about it was my pint of Fosters. Spend only £10 more & go to New rendezvous where the overall experience is a million times better.
