We like the 10” share munch box for £13, which is a 10” pizza box filled with salt and spicy chicken and chips, salt and spicy spare ribs, vegetable spring rolls, egg fried rice and curry sauce and chicken balls. Lovely stuff.


  •         “Best Chinese takeaway within Stockton, there is no doubting that… beautiful food every time, curry sauce blessed by the gods and without sounding slightly over the top I would happily shoot my Mrs over the edge of a cliff for a free house special chilli and garlic main (I wouldn’t even have to think about it) proper belter food.”
