FAQs

What is Cantonese sauce?


It is a savoury sauce with a fruity flavour.




What is Capital sauce?


It is a piquant barbecue sauce.




What is Char Siu?


Char Siu is Chinese roast pork. Char Siu translates literally as "fork roast" as this was the original method of roasting marinated, boneless pork on skewers.




Is there egg in fried rice?


As standard, yes there is. If you would like your fried rice without egg, please let us know when placing your order.




What is the difference between Sweet & Sour and Hong Kong Style Sweet & Sour?


Sweet and sour dishes are battered meat balls with a separate serving of sweet and sour (or BBQ or curry) sauce. Hong Kong style sweet and sour dishes are deep-fried pieces of meat served in a sweet and sour sauce with green peppers, pineapple and onions.




What is in the Mixed Vegetables?


A colourful medley of Chinese leaf, broccoli, mange tout, baby corn, straw mushrooms, carrots and water chestnuts.




What is Sichuan style?


Authentic Sichuan dishes are generally spicy. The Sichuan dishes we serve are simplified versions cooked with a chilli bean paste.




What is Tofu?


Tofu is bean curd made from soybeans. The tofu we serve is deep-fried which makes it crispy on the outside with a slightly chewy and spongy texture. As it's protein-rich it makes a great alternative to meat and suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.




What are Won Tons?


They are bite-size parcels of minced meat or finely chopped vegetables wrapped in a thin pastry. Our won tons are made with a minced pork and prawn filling; either deep-fried or boiled and served in a clear broth.




Why does the food taste better from China Kitchen?


At China Kitchen we cook individual orders as they arrive; with the exception of collection and 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".




Why don't you offer free home deliveries?


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 delivery charges, from £2.00, go directly to the delivery drivers and are cheaper than the average bus fare!




Where are the garlic and chilli dishes?


Our garlic and chilli dishes have been renamed salt and pepper. You'll find these as dishes 15 to 20 on the new menu. The recipe is just the same as you know and love.
