Whole duck, sea bass and beef in black bean sauce. The staff were lovely, very patient with us as we were all unsure what to order. We'll be... More

We went on Friday night, we both saw this restaurant on google and thought we would give it a go for our trip up to Scotland. The taxi took us to the restaurant which first impressions we thought it was a bit out of the way, walking into the seating area we were sat next to the beautiful marine fish... More

I visited this place this evening, dining alone, and after reading the reviews I wasn't expecting too much. I was greeted by what can only be described as a surely individual, Chinese, and a bit blunt maybe it was a language understanding issue. The food was ok, nothing special just ok. The rest of the staff were fine polite and... More

I regularly stop off on a Saturday lunchtime for Dim Sum, with my daughter. Restaurant reminds me of a ''functional'' Beijing restaurant, but the Dim Sum and Singapore noodles we regularly have never fail to disappoint. Service certainly not over friendly (!!!), but it is efficient and fast........ which works for us........

Been going to this place for over 10 years after I toured Asia and visited Hong Kong a few times. Dining at ChinaTown is a authentic Cantonese dining experience. You can tell as it is filled with Chinese customers on most days. Here you will find proper Hong Kong style Cantonese dishes, stir fries and fresh hand made dim sum.... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for 5years. We have always dealt with the owner(an older man who enjoyed the fun but also knew we loved good food.) As a group we looked forward to eating here. This time was so different. Firstly this restaurant can seat over 100 people but when we arrived on a busy Saturday evening there... More

We visited for Sunday lunch and were greeted very nicely. Taken straight to our table and the waitress gave us menus and took a drinks order. All waiting staff were happy and smiling. The food arrived quickly and was absolutely fantastic. Great service all the way thru. Would definitely go back and would also thoroughly recommend this place.

Dear Patron, thank you for taking time to write a review about us. I would firstly like to apologise for your experience when dinning with us. Secondly, I think you have misunderstood the points when dinning out. What you got was 1/2 Cantonese roast duck. You asked for 1/4 which we do not do. We asked if you were wanting... More
