Restaurant was almost empty but service was brusque and unfriendly

Seemed like they wanted us out quickly

And we WERE regulars and good tippers

Won’t return

Food very good - but quite expensive. Would certainly go there again - but only occasionally because of the price.

The restaurant is spacious with a good distance between tables and the ambience is conducive to good dining. The service is excellent with good attention to detail without being over facing. The food is delicious and very well prepared and presented. This is proper Chinese cuisine, not Chinese food adapted for British tastes. Vegetarian choices are plentiful. Covid-19 hygiene cannot be faulted in any way.

The meal and the staff were great. The only thing I would change is to not be seated right next to the service station. The staff tended to congregate right in front of our table through out our meal, even though the restaurant was relatively empty. Otherwise, we will be back as we thoroughly enjoyed our meal!

Excellent service and food. We went for my father's birthday and the restaurant arranged dessert (at no extra cost) and sang to him. It made his celebration very special. Would recommend this restaurant unreservedly.

I have been to the Good Earth twice now and I really want to like it on account of the other good reviews, but I really just find the restaurant okay. The food tastes nice enough and is obviously better than a takeaway (with the exception of the lemon chicken which is essentially dessert syrup which has been poured onto a breaded chicken fillet). However considering the pricing, I would expect better quality, more authentically Chinese food. The ambience was nice and the service was fine but all in all, I think more authentic Chinese food can be found elsewhere
