At China Kitchen we cook individual orders as they arrive, with the exception of delivery orders. This means cooking the same dishes over and over again throughout the course of the evening, however, we believe this is the best way to serve freshly cooked food. We also ensure each dish is cooked with "wok hey".
"Wok hey" is a term used to describe the aroma and flavour imparted by a hot wok. A dish cooked with little "wok hey" can taste rather flat. In our kitchen we use a powerful gas range which heats up the woks very quickly and the intense heat generated not only reduces the cooking time but more importantly helps to retain the nutrients in the food. This guarantees that our dishes are cooked with "wok hey".
Many takeaways will offer free home deliveries but may not tell you that delivery costs are already hidden within the dish prices and instead offer you a discount on collections. We believe in being fair and honest so our dishes are priced the same whether you are collecting or having your order delivered. Our £1.50 or £2.00 delivery charge goes directly to the delivery driver and is cheaper than the average bus fare!
