    Default Is cheap always not so good? *takeaway Chinese

    Ok so I am thinking of ordering Chinese for tea but the dishes are around $11 each, this is pretty cheap from what I can gather? In your experience has the food been of lesser quality when ordering from a Chinese takeaway that is cheaper?

    My favorite place is cheaper then that! And I have been to more expensive places that are crap. Id trust reveiws, I wouldn't not go to a place cus it's cheap and I wouldn't go to a place because it's expensive!

    I have travelled all over the world. I have eaten at cheap cafes, expensive restaurants and dodgy looking streeet vendors. You cannot judge quality yummy food on price. The best meal I ever had (and i went back for seconds and thirds) was from a caravan in athens selling gyros!!!!!! Yumbo

    Of course not. Cheap can be good, just as expensive can be crap.

    I have not eaten there. There is one in our suburb. It is always full, maybe that is why they can sell for such cheap prices, because they sell so much and keep prices down.
    Enjoy your dinner.

    No cheap means nothing. Some of Melbourne's best eateries are cheap as in the west.

    Check out this blog dedicated to cheap yet amazing eateries;

    My fave Chinese takeaway place is pretty cheap. It's REALLY YUMMY though... their Honey Chicken, for example, is crispy... not somewhat soggy and overly doughy like some of them are.

    Price isn't always indicative of quality.
