Hadn’t been for years as only just moved back to the area and wasn’t disappointed. We had the duck in pancakes as a starter which was excellent followed by beef in black bean sauce and the chicken with cashew nuts . All good but disappointed there was a 30 minute wait for the toffee apples and bananas dessert so passed on this. Remember to order these when you order rest of the meal to avoid the wait. Only criticism is the cost of the meal even without alcoholic drinks is on the high side. Overall, a nice evening out.

Fantastic meal at The Good Earth. It is very expensive, but well worth it for a celebration.
Access is a bit difficult with wheelchair, however owner came out to help us. They gave my Mother an ice cream with a lit candle, for her birthday. Very nicely done.

Everything about the evening was perfect. The restaurant, food, service really was excellent. I can’t think of anything which needs to improve. We’ve eaten at many Chinese restaurants and this one is the best.

Not what I expected from a Chinese resturant seeing how expensive the dishes were, very tasteless, no flavour we had to ask for chilli oil to amp up the flavour but this didn’t help as it felt like it didn’t have chillies in there seeing as it was so mild. Was really hyped up to coming here, to receive such disappointment with the food. Won’t be coming back here again ☹️

First time I'd been back here since early 2000's. The memory was far better than the current experience. Generally a cold welcome unless you're a "regular" and hurried out of the door so they can have the table back. The food was OK. We were served hoisin sauce with the prawn crackers which was odd. The duck pancakes were lovely. And the shanghai chilli chicken was also nice. The lamb in a paper plate wasn't as tasty as the chicken dish in my opinion.

The dated 70s decor is also a let down to what seems to be positioned as a "fancy" restaurant. The ambience is slightly stale, with no ambient music.

Portion sizes are on the tiny side so to encourage more plate orders I'd imagine.

A solid 3 out of 5.

Whilst the prices are high the quality and the taste of the food is excellent. The service is first class both friendly and helpful.

A cut above most Chinese restaurants. However, my son had fillet steak in some kind of pink sauce, which was not very nice. It’s nice that they sign happy birthday to you, and OK that they charge you for toffee bananas. Still good after all these years,
