Turned up just after 2pm wasn't busy but then they stop serving lunch at 3pm and start again at 5.30pm. Good variety of oriental food. £8.80 for all you can eat. It's more expensive in the evening. Did find me some of the food lukewarm...More

I found the staff friendly and very quick to serve. Food came very quickly, almost not enough time to update my facebook status! The food was great and price was reasonable. I would gladly return.

Looks like time has stood still here and this place is still going strong after all these years. The waiters barely speak English so do not ask for anything complicated. Duck with pancakes was very good the rest south of average.
