In for the lunch deal today, service was prompt and friendly. There was a very small, not unreasonable delay with the food, which we were kept informed about and wasn't a problem. We had various dumplings, the fried beef and water chestnut ones were particularly...More

Have had Chop Chop To Go a number of times over the last year and have never been disappointed. Service and food has been excellent at all times. Definitely worth trying. Will be back again soon.

Sorry about the error and your bad experience. This is definitely not typical of the huge enjoyment of most of our customers.

Great food and excellent service. My new favourite is the lamb and cumin dumpling. It was nice to see chop chop so full at lunchtime.

Thank you, James, for the compliment. Yes, we are seeing some very busy lunches as word of our insane price of £9.95 for eat-all-you-like AA Rosette food (lunch Mon-Fri) gets out. See you again before long!

A brilliant meal and great value for money. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Dumplings were gorgeous and I could eat the pork belly they served every day.

Thanks so much, ddlm27, for the great review, The pork belly is, like all our dishes, full of flavour and sensationally tender, just as it is served in China. Delighted that you appreciate it. Come back soon!

Hi, Jene fny. No, we have never uswed MSG and never will. It is a lazy way to enhance flvour and is a chemical, not even a food. We also do niot use any artificial preservatives or colourings. Our food is all natural.
