Chinese food in Sandy town centre, and the surrounding Bedfordshire area, doesn’t get much better than China Express on Market Square. Serving up spectacular Chinese cuisine that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere, this Sandy centre favourite specialises in Cantonese and Peking dishes. The menu at China Express offers plenty of seafood, meat and vegetable-based options that will be sure to appeal to every palate, and with very reasonable prices to boot!
But what kind of dishes can you expect to find at China Express? Appetizers include crispy aromatic duck served with pancakes, vegetables and lashings of hoi sin sauce; Thai fish cakes served with a spicy fish sauce dip; crispy salt and chilli squid and ribs served six different ways. For mains at China Express choose from spicy Singaporean vermicelli noodles with chicken, scallops with lychee and mango or lamb with green peppers and black bean sauce. Make sure you keep some space for dessert, mind you, because with options like toffee apples and toffee bananas, or a particularly splendid banana fritter doused in syrup on the menu you’re going to want a sweet treat to round off your meal perfectly.
China Express is a super Chinese restaurant in the small Bedfordshire town of Sandy. We've been coming here since moving back to the UK in 1999 and the food and service has been consistently good. The best Chinese food that I've eaten in England outside London, prepared in full sight by a team of chefs, working hard by their hot woks.
Excellent in every way, help when ordering, prompt service, although busy the food was served when we wanted it. staff not intrusive, we would go again

I visited the restaurant to celebrate my parents wedding anniiversay and mothers day. We had a fabulous meal in this lovely restaurant. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable!
I have been here a number of times and the food is the best Chinese I’ve had and service usually great. But Went on Saturday and the food was very very good as always, however I wasn’t impressed with the service. Hence the reason I have only marked it as a 4. We sat down at 7.30pm and after 20 minutes of sitting waiting we had to ask someone to order drinks and our food. The starter came out reasonably quick, but the wait time between the mains was around an hour. In that wait time no one came and asked if we wanted more drinks (empty glasses just sat on our table). One main dish and a rice arrived and then we had to wait a further 15 mins until we asked someone how long will it be until we get the rest of our food the poor waitress was shouted at by a gentleman at the pass who said “NOT LONG”. It won’t put me off going here because I love the food. I just feel that the service could have been better handled.
We had a very enjoyable meal. The service very good and staff very attentive. The food was delicious. There was an excellent choice of food. We will certainly return.
Friendly service, well presented, tasty although the wine was expensive. What more can I say ? More words required - what more do you want me to say ?
