Great evening and delicious set menu. Service very good even though the restaurant was absolutely packed. Only very minor issue was noise levels but mainly due to a couple of noisy tables having a good time! Leigh Hiusr is my favourite Chinese restaurant. Our friends from London were impressed

Have eaten here for years because (i) the food is always delicious (ii) the food is always piping hot (iii) and the service is always exemplary. I live about 1 hour away from this restaurant but will always make the drive - it is always worth it!

Food great all service was good.
The only thing that let it down was the temperature of the restaurant. About 90% of the Cousy were sat in there coats.

We (4 of us) arrived at the very full restaurant at 7.45pm. Immediately asked what we would like to drink and they arrived soon after.
We chose to have the house sharing starter plate (for 2), half a duck, sweet & sour pork, chilli beef, chicken dish and egg fried rice (3 portions).
Sharing plate arrived quickly - obviously had been prepared earlier and been microwaved - sesame toast was soft in the middle and the ribs were fatty.
The duck was placed on a serving table beside us 30 minutes later and there it sat for 15 minutes. Eventually the server came to take it off the bone and we asked for a fresh duck as it was now cold.
Another 15 minutes go by and a duck was presented to us already off the bone - Luke warm - and probably the original duck heated in the microwave.
By 9.45pm the rest of the food still had not arrived and we gave up. Settled the bill - which was wrong - and left.
Very disappointing - restaurant was full and it was very obvious that the kitchen simply could not cope with the volume.
The young lady serving us was friendly and was most apologetic.
Ghastly experience

Great service, excellent vegan food and good wine. What more can you ask? We had the signature vegetarian menu adapted for vegans. Delicious!

Sizzling dishes made it uncomfortable for other tables.
No music, so all we could hear all night was the table to us.
Service very slow. Expect a long period of time between courses.

The service was excellent. All the dishes were tasty and well prepared except the Kung Po chicken which was not the style I expected. The aubergine hot pot was lovely. My friends thoroughly enjoyed the evening and considered the overall quality matching the old days when Mr Tang senior was in charge. The house white wine was delightful. As a result of the experience I have already booked two more sessions in the next four weeks.

The two women running the restaurant could not have been more attentive. The food was good. What spoilt the experience was the rude way in which a male member of staff came to the table at around 10.15, zero customer service skills, unsmiling, and asked if we’d finished and did we need a taxi! There was another table still chatting who did not appear to be similarly be given their marching orders. A sour end to an otherwise enjoyable evening.

I had booked for a birthday meal for myself and partner. Although the staff member said they were aware of my booking, they did not seem to pay any attention or note/check my name, instead preferring to rush us to a table for 2. The table for 2 was awkwardly positioned next to a table of 4 diners, already seated. I asked if we could move and it was met with a no. A second request resulted in us being moved to a another table.
The food was very average. The noodle dish we ordered, instead of having shredded pork in it had some kind of processed meat in it, which was odd and overpriced at almost £7 as a side dish.
When it was just myself and my partner left in the restaurant, the staff spoke loudly to each other across the restaurant, which was really quite rude and spoiled the atmosphere.
I spoke to a staff member, before I left, about my disappointment. The responses were dismissive and unhelpful, in hindsight, I should not have paid the 'discretionary' service charge.
I would not visit this restaurant again as the atmosphere, food and service were poor. A very expensive, disappointing experience overall.

On arrival for a 1pm table restaurant was closed, despite a call to say two members of our party were stood waiting outside they still opened after 1pm.
Food was of a reasonable standard but a bit bland compared to past experiences here.
The outside of the building, particularly upstairs was very shoddy, and inside although clean just seems tired, and lacked the finesse we have previously experienced.
Staff were polite.

The service speed was slow and we waited a long time for drinks and our order. There was a constant droning noise from a ventilation system towards the rear of the restaurant that was annoying and intrusive. Not the venue I remember!
