Had implant treatment with dr aria in 2015, very happy with outcome a very nice dentist always made me feel at ease explains the process. Excellent aftercare any problems Dr aria went above and beyond to solve the issue always recommend to friends and family. All staff are helpful and friendly.

I have been a patient here for years and have always found all the staff who work here to be friendly, professional and efficient. The Reception team are great at sorting out any scheduling problems or necessary paperwork. Hemini and Sezan are a great team together and Hemini is an amazing dentist, her attention to detail is like no other and she has a very reassuring presence.

Naidu & Naidu Dental Surgeons

132 Gubbins Ln, Romford RM3 0DP, UK – 01708 341587

What an excellent dentist. Saw Mr Naidui and was by far the best dentist I've been to. Have been every year for check up but needed several apptmnts for deeper work. Very knowledgable and precise and also lovely friendly staff.

Friendly Staff , welcoming surgery, top quality dentists and nurses highly recommended

Western Road Dental Practice, Romford

97 Western Rd, Romford RM1 3LS, UK – 01708 203146

Although I remain a nervous patient after bad childhood experiences with the "school dentist" I do try to go regularly.... after all leaving things makes them worse! Each experience reminds me I needn't get so worried. New xray equipment meant that last time a proposed filling was no longer required - new gizmo shows inside teeth much clearer, hooray for that! Seriously, despite moving 225 miles away last year we will be returning to this practice/dentist for as long as we viably can into our old age! My husband recently switched to this practice as after an initial consultation we felt our trust was well placed for extensive implant surgery which went very well indeed. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else!

Always friendly, efficient and reassuring which is great for someone who has feared/lacked trust in the dentist since childhood. I have never experienced any pain or discomfort when having work done here. 5 stars well deserved.

Doctor's Surgery

137 Straight Rd, Romford RM3 7JJ, UK – 01708 343281

Never had any problems with the reception staff or the doctors and I've been a patient for over 30 years.

Ardleigh Green Surgery

106 Ardleigh Green Rd, Hornchurch RM11 2LP, UK – 01708 476455

Waited over a hour to see the practice nurse after I was sent two letters to say I needed to see her. The nurse was friendly and very apologetic to how long I had to wait When I tried to book appointments I was told there wasn't any until 17th April , almost a 3 week wait. Looks like I will be sitting there again for another hour.

North Street Medical Care

274 North St, Romford RM1 4QJ, UK – 01708 629733

Overall, I have found the doctors and nurses here to be pretty good. I can usually get an appointment within a week. The only bad point is that one of the receptionists was a little bit surly - haven't seen her for a long time.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Queen's Hospital

Queen's Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford RM7 0AG, UK – 0330 400 4333

I visited the Hospital for an Endoscopy and it was amazing. It was clean and sterile. The nurses were knowledgable, friendly, helpful and just amazing overall. The doctor and consultant was amazing and really put you at ease. They made me a tea with biscuits and it was just perfect not that weird stuff with skin all over it. Overall best experience to date.

I was seen at the A and E on Sunday. I could not be more grateful for the care I got from the ECP who looked after me. I think his name is Francis M. He was empathic and compassionate towards me and ensured I was pain free before leaving. He ensured he got a referral for the specialist prior to me leaving the premises. Also the professionals at the X RAY department were very gentle and professional. Thank you so much for the care you provided.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Romford

Cosmo World Buffet Romford

4A, The Brewery, Waterloo Rd, Romford RM1 1AU, UK – 01708 733777

My impressions after a first time visit with a group of colleagues. Wide variety of food, Asian, Italian, American etc, looking good but tasting reminiscent somehow of a heated supermarket ready meal, therefore not as good as it looked. In my opinion they may have used plenty of sugar and (I think) flavour enhancers like MSG. We were a big group of people having a great time so we were not too picky. Atmosphere was a good although I couldn’t shake off the canteen feeling. Will I repeat? No. I am not a big fan of eat-as-much-as-you-can style places. Will I recommend it? Yes, if you are not too picky about food quality and quantity is king. Otherwise go eat somewhere else.

First time here....table booked but not ready, had to wait 20 minutes, sat to eat at 19:50 not the 19:30 we had booked. With an advertised closing time of 22:00 we were told that there would be no time limit for us to eat etc... however, at precisely 21:15 a waitress came over and advised the buffet would close at 21.30. Food was reasonable over all, Chinese dishes are better than the Indian, however dishes are left to grow old and crusty. Tables weren't the cleanest, and the floor a little "sticky". Not the worst buffet restaurant, and defi lately somewhere to keep in mind, but not going to be a regular place to go to.

Sukhothai Restaurant

155 High St, Hornchurch RM11 3YD, UK – 01708 478885

Pros: Tasty Thai food, good portions, reasonable price, friendly staff, well decorated and styled. Cons: Waiters were friendly but hard to get a hold of at times (it wasn't so busy). Venue was a bit too cold and could use the heat turned up a bit (some of us kept our jackets on because it was too cold)

Food was fine. Cooked well. I was rather suprised to see that all the waitresses were lady boys. Wasnt expecting that when i walked in. 🙈

Shish Meze Restaurant

2 Berther Rd, Hornchurch RM11 3HS, UK – 01708 475858

My experience today was beautiful... it was my son’s 18th birthday and he had an amazing time. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable... Even though they were busy and we didn’t have a reservation they still found us a seat. The staffs came around to make sure we had everything we needed. They even had conversations with the kids... It was worth every penny.

Really enjoyed the food but jusy too noisy for me and my friend. Music loud so people shouting to be heard. Very busy! We were lucky to get a table as spur of moment decision to eat out but they kindly accommodated us. Staff really nice, friendly and efficient. Bit too efficient cleaning my half of the table while my friend still eating. Not impressed with that but still enjoyed the food.... book in advance! Party atmosphere on the Friday we visited maybe different other times.

What an amazing experience it honestly was with this school! I surpassed alot of things and achieved certain things which make my family proud these days! The teachers are exceptionally well skilled and they are the ones that get you on this road to glory! They help you adjust to how life is at that school and they help you each and every day! Probably one of the best schools to have ever been made! The new headmaster has done something amazing! Well done to the school and the community it has produced! What an amazing school! it endures and helps you catch your full potential!

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 480 Reception, Year 2, 4 & 5 students at Rush Green Primary. I was warmly welcomed by the friendly staff and brought a cup of tea while setting up. The day was well-organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed peering up at the planetarium night sky, travelling across the Solar System and learning about the possibility of life on other planets. Thank you Rush Green Primary for a very pleasant visit.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Goodrington Pre-School and School

17 Walden Rd, Hornchurch RM11 2JT, UK – 01708 448349

Ever since I brought my daughter to this pre school I have been very pleased with how quickly she settled in and how she felt so comfortable with all of the staff so quickly. They really go the extra mile to make sure she is happy. She has made many friends whilst here as there is a great sense of community at the school from all the children & the support she receives with her every day learning, social development and dietary needs is amazing. The activities on offer are also great, from music, to putting on shows and from cooking to arts and crafts. I would highly recommend this pre school to anyone who is looking for somewhere that they can be sure their child is in a safe, happy, stimulating & well supported environment.

My Son attends this pre school and it is excellent in every sense. He is at reception level at the age of 4!

Gidea Park College

2 Balgores Ln, Romford RM2 5JR, UK – 01708 740381

Both my Mum and I attended this school and have nothing but fond memories of it! The teachers are excellent and the education was second to none. I was there from 2 1/2 through to 11 and it set me up in great stead for starting secondary school and for life in general. I'd highly recommend it to everyone!

Gidea Park College will always hold a special place in my family's heart. As parents we have seen our daughter blossom in a family oriented nurturing environment. Our daughter has enjoyed every moment of school life from the academics to the sports and drama activities. She started in reception as a reserved little girl and now leaves as a confident preteen .
