This WAS the BEST Chinese I ever had! Had many fantastic meals here with family and friends. The Combination platter was out of this world, use to order for 9 and it was still on point, every bloody time. Family and I are absolutely gutted...More

I ate in this restaurant several times before it changed management in 2018, and I just returned for the first time under the new management. The food and the service was ok, although the staff didn’t seem very relaxed around the customers. I asked for...More

I’m staggered by the abysmal reviews this place has received because while sat in the restaurant I actually said this is probably the best Chinese I’ve ever been too. The food was beautiful & everyone in our group agreed. Fantastic food, not the cheapest but...More

This Restuarant is now called Sleeping Panda, and we wished we’d never gone and tried to wake this slumbering beast. Quite simply the worst vegetarian Chinese food I’ve ever had. Monk chicken or “Mock Chicken” was absolutely terrible. If you’re a veggie/ vegan don’t waste...More

Had limited time on business trip to find a restaurant. Won ton soup was ok but nothing special. Main included king prawn fried rice. Prawns were tasteless. Service was a little slow considering I was only one there. Not somewhere I am likely to go...More

Utterly disappointed In the food and customer service I received from 'the new management'. The banquet for 2 (pictured) was extremely poor with no meat in the chop rolls, the ricdiclously small portion of seaweed and the missing beef samosas just added insult. The mains...More
