It was lovely. We were treated really well with great service. Had the duck to share for starter and it was great! Main was very tasty and just the right amount of food. Nice decor also quite typical Asian. Good for couples and grouts

This place has gone downhill since I was last there. New staff, some of whom show little interest in their job or in their customers. I had King Prawn Toast for starter. It was OK but nothing more than OK. I had what they say...More

You can just walk in which is what I have done on the last two occasions. But, this is a popular restaurant so it's best to make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
