i have enjoyed eating here every time Ive been, there is a good choice of food on the menu, which is piping hot when its served to you at the table, not like some of these buffet places where you grab your food from trays that could have been sat there for hours.

I ordered a meal from here tonight with my friend and we both really enjoyed it. I had the special curry which included squid and she had chow mein. We were suprised to get free prawn crackers and spring rolls. We will definately order from here again.

The place was cold and I ended up shoved in a corner. The ledge next to my table was piled with cardboard boxes of Fortune cookies, carrier bags and polystyrene trays for takeaways. Staff were packing food for delivery while I was sat there. .... the food was just okay but not particularly hot, just warm at best and a... More

This was our first trial of the set menus, rather than the buffet, and it was a great success. Menu B, the midpriced menu, was varied and filling. We greedily had sweets as well - the toffee apple was ample and suitably sticky.

Me and my partner have ordered from here a few times now since we moved into the area and have almost always been delighted with the food, service and delivery time. This time we ordered our usual sweet and sour chicken and egg fried rice. We ordered our food at half past 6 and was given a delivery time of... More

Visited here several tine recently as a take away customer rather than restaurant customer. We always find the service on the phone and delivery ti be really good. The food is very nice and I find it to be the best Chinese food in the area.
