I don't personally like Chinese food, but a friend of mine was there on Wednesday night and he said it was gorgeous, and the staff were really friendly.

Joes is easily the best chipper, although granted a bit slow, although a lot of the time that's because of the queue. But they're very generous with their chips in comparison to the others! Angelos is so so, and takes forever, however I do like their pizza. The people in Genoas talk about you in Italian, and are quite slow too.

The reason that there is a queue is precisely because they are so slow!

If I ran it, I'd take the orders from customers as they enter. That way some people with simple orders such as a bag of chips, can be served gone again leaving a shorter queue and therefore attracting more business. Many of those who go to the Genoa, do so after first checking the queue in Joe's.
