The lads in here are never "rude" and the food is great. The previous 1 time reviewers need to take a good look at themselves. As for the last "troll", he needs to get out more.

I love my Chinese and Oriental food, I am a foody and can cook so why cant any of the Chinese takeaways in Troon or Dundonald be any good. Portion ok, price is good and food between poor and average.

Best Chinese take away in Troon and probably South Ayrshire but I have to try more out before I can confirm that ! Food was lovely and we got free prawn crackers. I don't know if that was like a deal when you spend over a certain amount you get different things but it was a welcome thing to receive.
