Excellent restaurant all round, great menu backed up with great service. Unusual to see frogs legs on a menu and they were delicious as were the special spring rolls. The sizzling main courses were really tasty. Very enjoyable dinner. We will be back!

Have made a repeat visit and found it up to its very good standard, the food was very good, typical Chinese menu but prepared and presented well. Portions good size without being silly, four of us went and very little waste.
