The score review is a shame as this place is meant to be highly rated. We were greeted well and sat down in a pleasant manner. It was after this that the problems started, we ordered the banquet for 4. The food was okay but I have had better and wouldn't say it was fantastic here at all. The odd... More

Thanks, 1RDavido, for your review. Sorry that you didn't enjoy the food. That's your personal opinion. Based on the overwhelming popularity of our food and the awards it has received over a long period, we will not be changing anything. I was very disappointed to read that on the evening of your visit the service was poor and the toilet... More

Food is good but with a party of 10 on the unlimited banquet, the food supply appears to have rather dried up after 1 round. Service is slow (the place is far from packed) have been waiting for 20 minutes for more drinks. Don't think we'll be back

Thanks, Brian. I'm sorry about this experience and have no idea what could have gone wrong here but will check with the staff. We have ample staff and plenty of free refills. Please contact me and I will arrange some compensation More

Thanks for the great review, Carrie, and your compliments about the food! We have some great staff but are also in the process of training some new staff members, who might have been struggling a little when we were absolutely full this past weekend. Within a couple of days they'll be fine and service will be back up to its... More

This is the best Chinese food we have ever had. Don't be put off by the old fashioned decor. I guarentee you are in for a treat. Food is Devine, service friendly. Get the banquet meal, you will not be disappointed. Book well in advance, this is a popular place

Thank Liz C
Roy K, Owner at Chop Chop, responded to this review

Thanks, Liz, for your five star review. The "old fashioned decor" is, of course, intentional as it reflects our old fashioned values of simple, completely natural food such as a very talented Chinese Mum would have cooked in north eastern China for her large family fifty or more years ago. Nouvelle Cuisine, Fusion Food and other contrived flashes of food... More

I have just had a dinner in this restaurant. I mean I am pretty sure people not coming here for the subtle decore, fine dining or impeccable service, although everybody I have encountered was really helpful.The main attraction is the food which is superb. I had some boiled and fried dumplings, some fried aubergine and it was really remarkable. Richly... More

Kaccca, thank you for your review, which summarises perfectly what we are all about. Unpretentious in our decor or service, we serve authentic northern Chinese food in an informal environment with flavours that most of our guests have never tasted before. Very relaxing and very surprising! More

Thank you, AmelieBorderCollie, for taking the time to review your visit. Very sorry that you were disappointed, especially in the dumplings, which are so popular and of which we are so proud. As for the chicken and rice, that is a simple side dish, pleasing enough but not one of the many unique and interesting dishes on our menu .... More

Do not be put off by the appearance of the outside of the restaurant. what it lacks in modern décor it makes up with the fantastic food. dumplings are the speciality. the stir fried spicy beef was the best ive ever tasted and just melted in the mouth. we shared about 6/7 plates of dumplings and small dishes and we...

Roy K, Owner at Chop Chop, responded to this review

Karen, thank you for your generous remarks. Apart from our signature dumplings, you are right in describing the stir-fried beef. It is remarkable and just one of the 57 side dishes that go with our dumplings. A dumpling restaurant, yes, but so much more! We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

Hello, Frank. Thanks for your review. I am very sorry that you didn't enjoy the food and thought it was expensive although under £50 including drinks for a family of four is not expensive unless you are comparing it to a fast food outlet, which we are not.

This is the second time that I have visited Chop Chop and to be honest I was disappointed. Visiting 5 years ago, I was very impressed not only with the food but the general buzz and enthusiasm of all the staff. Returning this year I found the interior is starting to look very tired. The plastic crockery - which I... More
