We went for a friends birthday meal, there was 12 of us in total. The restaurant wasn't overly busy, but even before we had been given menus we heard the manager tell a member of staff not to answer the phone as she was too...More

We enjoyed the buffet menu here during the week, cannot fault the food in anyway. However the waitress was so rude to the other members of staff that it made us feel very uncomfortable and this did spoil our experience somewhat. One particular waiter seemed...More

Not your normal Chinese restaurant but they do still adhere to the conventional chinese menu. Pleasant, clean and enjoyable food but not too salty as some Chinese restaurants tend to be and they were open Saturday lunchtime which is unusual around here

Went here for Sunday lunch with work friends. The food is served as a buffet on Sundays with a small but varied selection of dishes including vegetarian. £10 a head which is brilliant value. Pleasant surroundings. Would go again and would recommend.
