We had a meal here before a concert at the Arena. The staff were great- and when we told them we had cut it a bit fine they speeded the meal up. Brilliant. The food was nice, our cripsy duck was a little too crispy for our liking, but overall the meal was good. The restaurant surroundings were not to... More

I am commenting on this because it was my favourite Chinese restaurant and went there quite often with my friends. Nice Chinese food were cooked specially for us. But it was changed somehow which I don't know the reason. I changed my favourite Chinese restaurant to another and I hope this one can be made better again.

My daughter and I both enjoyed our meals, good quality, & service very friendly. Cash only at the moment though, and toilets not very clean.

Everything was dirty. The toilets, the floors, the tables and it was virtually empty. The staff too busy chatting to look after our table properly. Do yourself a favour and walk the five to ten minutes to stowell street where you're spoilt for choice.
