Really enjoyed the food-easily the best Chinese restaurant I have been to! I would recommend the prawn toast as a starter and the beef satay. The service was quick and everyone was very friendly. Would go again.

A most enjoyable evening for a large party of 12 people of 3 generations. We had a good selection of dishes, all very well prepared and served. Well worth a visit.

Visited on a Sunday evening when they were busy. Service excellent....attentive with a sense of humour too. Food good, we tried a banquet (B) which was more than adequate for 5 people. Not surprised this is a popular restaurant. Wine reasonably priced. Will return more...More
