Chinky: wat u want?
May I have (menu item)
Yesssss

Yesssss
Next item

Order complete...

Crash only!!

Never a thanks, please, or kiss my arse.

Foods good, but he's an ignorant, miserable bastard.

Only game in town sadly.

Maybe don't use that word, as it is used as pejorative to the chinese. so may not be a kind way to refer to you Lemon chicken suppleir

One our local ones talks like Danny Dyer. It’s just odd when you collect it and a Chinaman says Alright Geez you ordering or collecting? :D

We used to have a truly excellent Chinese no more than 2 minutes walk away from us, run by a lovely old Hong Kong Chinese couple. I'd ring up the order then ask how long it would be and the reply was (without fail) 'ten mini'

They retired 7 or 8 years ago and apparently went back to HK. Not the best move, IMHO.

That reminds me of when I was having an operation and there's two white guys in the preop room. I already have the cannula in and as I'm drifting off I hear Bob Marley. Later that day I'm talking with the surgeon and mention that I imagined Bob Marley was in the room and he said "it was the anaesthetist who is a white Jamaican" Apparently most patients are a bit taken aback :D

I grew up in a Suffolk village in the 1970s, I went to school with a girl who looked Chinese, she was born before me and had lived in the UK longer than me, she had a Suffolk accent, it can't be that unusual for someone from Basildon to look Chinese.

I also work with someone who grew up in Beijing who said she had no idea how to cook traditional Chinese food but her daughter wanted her to on Friday.
