Charde Oriental reviews

By Claire K.

only ever had take away from here but the food is delicious and it didnt take long to arrive. i really must see if the restaurant is as good as ive been told!!

We had a booking for four people, one in a wheelchair. It was not a busy evening. As we waited for our table (why did we have to wait? It was only a matter of moving one chair aside), another group pushed past and demanded instant attention because one person knew a member of staff. They were instantly seated, order taken and drinks served before we had time to be shown to our table. This did nothing to improve the ambience. Mostly, the food on the set menu (B) was good. However, the king prawns had no taste at all, and there was never an offer of a top-up, even for rice. The bill was not itemised in English, so it was not possible to check its accuracy. There is no disabled toilet, despite the Charde web site claiming there is. There is not. A senior member of staff said there never had been. When asked about the internet claim to have disabled facilities, another senior member of staff spoke in to us Cantonese (?), dismissed us and buried his head back in the accounts. We have been numerous times previously, but never again.

went last night, I am an amputee and bound to a wheelchair. Access no problem but we had a couple of beers then found there is NO disabled loo even though a disabled toilet is advertised. we won't return.

We always enjoy visiting the Charde Oriental whether it's to celebrate a birthday, for Chinese New Year or just because we want a night out. The staff are always very friendly, but can be a bit harried if the restaurant is full. As for the food... I love it. The Oriental Feast is very good value and you certainly get a feast for £17.95. The a la carte menu is extensive; everything I've tried so far has been excellent.

From reading about The Charde on their web site and reviews written, myself and a friend booked a table at this restaurant to enjoy what we thought would be an evening to remember, and it was, yet for the wrong reasons. On arriving, the welcome seemed a little abrupt and at times, unfriendly.When seated, and after only a few minutes, my friend and I were then the only people seated for the rest of the evening. As our time there passed, we were made to feel rather uncomfortable by the same member of staff, who's manner at times appeared quite rude, rushing us through each course, and standing a short distance away, poised to remove items from our table. Towards the end of our evening, the member of staff proceeded to turn off music and some lights, and advised us they were closing in 10 minutes. We felt quite uncomfortable throughout the evening, and am almost certain we will not return.

I went with my family to celebrate our silver anniversary. Everything was excellent, good service, superb food. The atmosphere was enchanting. We enjoyed every dishes from starter, entre and dessert, no food left over. We had a really good time together. Certainly, we will go again.

One of Nottingham’s best kept secrets, Charde Oriental is a true taste of Asia situated away from the hubbub of Nottingham’s bustling town centre.

The Venue
Melton Road, Tollerton, in the heart of the Nottinghamshire countryside, is hardly the place you expect to find an extremely well-presented and top-notch Chinese and Thai restaurant.

Originally converted from a local gastro pub, the facade can be quite deceptive as once you step through the front door you are surrounded by Oriental decorations and artwork.

The People
You get a sense of pride in this restaurant and the staff are courteous and prompt, while the authentic decor sets the scene for the meal to come. There is ample seating and it doesn't feel cramped.

It attracts a mixed bag of customers, ranging from large groups of six to eight through to couples having a romantic dinner.

The Food
The menu is wide-ranging and caters to all tastes with an extensive vegetarian section followed by Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Indonesian, Vietnamese and a host of traditional English dishes. You're spoilt for choice.

When the starters of Malaysian vegetable satay on skewer’s (£4) arrive they are well-presented and the food is fresh and appetising and the flavours are a treat for the taste buds.

Braised Chinese mushrooms and seasonal greens served (£5) with egg fried rice (£2.90) is equally as exquisite as the starters. The food is hot with the mushrooms full flavour shining through making this a recommended choice. There is also a set menu, which is more than enough for the largest of appetites.

The Drinks
The bar is fully stocked with the usual host of wines and spirits along with draught lager and chilled beers. A pint of Fosters will set you back around £2.80, while the house wine white/red is £3.25 for a small glass and the spirits range from £2.30 upwards and extra for a mixer.

The Last Word
One of Nottingham’s best kept secrets, with a large selection of authentic food cooked to an exceptional standard. It all takes place in a friendly atmosphere in rural surroundings, what more could you ask for? The only drawback is the location as it's a bit further than most like to travel, but the food more than makes up for the drive.
