Our family loves Chinese food, and this place is definitely one of the best we've been to in this country, as far as value for money goes. Whenever we are in Berkshire, the Szechuan is a must for us.

Probably one of the best restaurants you can go to in the area. I can't give it 5 stars because the dessert and drinks are lacking for me. For the type of restaurant it is, it's one of the best I've been to.. I can't fault the food. I really recommend the set menus, especially if you've got a few... More

I was taken by my friends to this restaurant as a birthday treat. It was quite full which was a good sign but we had booked so we were ok. Food was amazing staff were amazing. A very enjoyable night. Even got a free ice cream with candle and the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday too. 100% recommendation. Well done... More

Meal was okay. Felt heavy on my stomach the next day. Was super fast when ordered - literally five minutes after I placed order - which always makes me a little suspicious. Staff where nice and friendly. Taxi driver recommended the place, I would'nt take his recommendation for the following night.

Have eaten here a number of times, but not for a while. Food was good as ever, we had a Buffett for two, service was very attentive. Price very competitive.

Arguably the best Chinese food I have eaten, including a fortnight in Shanghai a few years ago. Always great service and atmosphere, with courteous and willing staff at all times ! Superb !

Dropped in on the off chance of a table as in the area, managed to get a table midway down restaurant. Not sure on why prawn crackers and non descript sauce on table already as the crackers were not as crispy as you would expect. Menu is ok, but dishes numbered, waiter asked us for description rather than number but... More

Went At 9.15 on a Sunday night - place was empty . Prawn toast was fatty and obviously not fresh . Chicken dish was awful. Saving grace was crispy beef. Highlight was listening to the staff meeting that the manager thought must be OK to have whilst diners where nearby - learnt a lot of interesting facts about this place... More
