Mr Moks is/was owned by the same family that run the Rendezvous. Abbey Meads Rendezvous is run by them and does a cracking take away (in fact had one last night) and they deliver.  Well worth giving them a go.

Seven stars which is at the end of the row of shops in green meadow is outstanding. Be prepared for a long wait if you require delivery on weekends mind. 2.5 hours I was told the other Saturday. Collection still took just over an hour. That’s the sign of a good take away in my view.

I got round to trying Seven Stars and you are right, the food was outstanding. I didn't order at the weekend and it was delivered to West Swindon in less than an hour. I think I've found my new Chinese delivery. I'll be giving them a few more goes soon. Thanks.

having to wait 2.5 hours for a delivery is your view of a good takeaway? Seriously?

A permanently empty takeaway is a good takeaway?

I think I understand both sides of the biscuit here. Extremities. While 2.5hrs to essentially wait for a glorified stir-fry (I'm not talking a restaurant here, purely take-a-way) is probably on the long side (what are they doing?), I would be pretty concerned if my order-food was ready in 10-15mins. An hour I would say is an acceptable tops waiting time. Anything grossly over is either incredibly short staffed/slow staff/ineptitude.

Of course, other factors come in like the size of the order, the variance of dishes ordered and if there are several large orders in that all vary then that takes some consideration. 2.5hrs though? Still seem a long time. Not great for business in that trade as the main "Dinner Window" is 6-9pm, if someone orders at 7pm then they aren't going to want to eat at near 10pm and takes away the term take-a-way!

It could have just been a one off and they got caught out. If the food ordered was hot, delicious and made for an enjoyable evening then that is the main end game.

On the face of it 2.5 hours does seem excess however Bamboo’s reply pretty well covers it.

Thing is in curry houses they have a few basic sauces then depending on the meat/veg constituent they chuck in a variant of addition herbs and spices to give you what you have ordered. After all have any of you ever wondered how they manage to make 100 different didshes in twenty minutes?

Far eastern dishes are kind of made on demand from scratch with a stir fry process and that to me seems a different proposition. You cannot keep vegetables in a stir fry cooking or stewing in a sauce if thye’re Supposed to crispy, again look at all the variant dishes in the chinkypoo and see how many are ‘crispy Fried this or that’ completely different cuisine and method of cooking.

Two and a half hours eh? Better book early for Christmas then.
