Avoid!

So earlier this evening I treated myself and the kids to take away...
This is my review:
Delivery time was the only possible positive point. I placed my order at 4pm and it arrived at 5:20pm, the driver was a pleasant chap.
Quality:
The chicken chowmein - the noodles were the texture of candy laces, the chicken was tough. It was almost as if it had been sat in grease under a hot lamp all afternoon.
Spring Rolls- Soggy.
The Aromatic duck- Bland, powdery dry texture where it had been over cooked sufficiently to dry your mouth out making it hard to chew.. the hoisin sauce was salty!! The veg to go with the duck are usually spring onions and cucumber finely sliced, but recieved roughly chopped cucumber and white onion which is completely over powering and unsuitable accompaniment.
The prawn toasts - greasy and soggy.
The ribs- Chewy, dry and quite tasteless.
Service: When I called up to say that the food they had sent was inedible I was asked why? When I said the duck was too dry to chew I got a sarcastic remark stating "crispy duck is supposed to be dry, I mean its not going to be wet is it!?". When I went on to say how chewy the ribs were I was told that pork is "supposed to be chewy". When I asked if he had ever tried the food there he said no. Says it all really. When I asked for a refund I was told "we dont do that".
So save yourself the hassle and do not order from here. Having been feeling run down all week this was supposed to be a cheer up treat for the family. Instead its just been a total disappointment, leaving us hungry and having spoken to them we are also very annoyed.

We are new to the area and are trying to find a good Chinese so are working our way through the local takeaways. This was our 2nd place to try, we ordered combo Ribs and set meal deal with combo starter, the starters came and it looked like the food had been sat there for a day or two and just re heated, the prawn toast was rock hard, dry and chewy, the ribs, what tiny amount of meat there was again was chewy and tasted more like jerky as it was dry and tough, the spring rolls hardly had any filling and again tasted reheated. The set meals came well packaged which is the ONLY reason the even got 2 stars, the meals all tasted the same, it was very watery and once the meat was all chewy!
I therefore will NOT be going again and I wont even bother trying Pizza King as that's probably just as bad being in the same place, that maybe a harsh assumption but i'm not taking the chance!!!
The only recommendation I will be making for this takeaway is....Keep Away, i'll update you if any of us end up sick, as this may well happen! ( not that it was all eaten by a long way)
