Firstly I only usually give positive reviews. I haven't eaten at or had a takeaway from this restaurant for at least 2 years due to previous poor customer service experience. I live locally and decided to give them a go! Whilst on the phone placing my order I felt that the man on the other end of the phone was... More

Thought we would give it a go as a take out for a special treat. Very mediocre food to be honest. Noodles were weird tasting and wet and other dishes just weren't up to scratch for the money. There are much better options around.

We went there for Valentines night dinner. Having lived in the Bay, this used to be our favourite Chinese restaurant where the service and food were always "top notch". Unfortunately not this time. Having arrived it was not very busy, however we hardly sat down, and there was a waitress asking if we wanted our starters. We had not even... More

The starters were good. The seaweed was fairly tasteless though. The second course duck was also good, but not a generous portion for three people. The mains were very disappointing. Too much onion and not enough meat or flavour. The crispy, chilli beef, which is usually my favourite, was like toffee apples. Far too sweet and far too much batter.... More

My wife, son and I visited for my birthday. I was slightly nervous as I had read mixed reviews, but having recently moved close-by thought we should try, and I am very glad that we did. Whilst the decor is pretty basic, the staff were friendly and efficient. I thought they might not want us to order too much (and... More

I read the reviews and through we'd try it anyway. To my utter disappointment we paid £16.00 each ( although the menu clearly states £14.00). Further to this I was under the impression it's all you can eat, however the lady stopped the 4 of us ordering after repeating 6 dishes, not sure is this regular practice but we had... More

A fantastic little place in the centre of the village. Great service, limited beverages but plenty of very good Chinese food. Great value for money...lovely staff...and they do deliver locally...

Have had takeaway delivery for over 10 years. Last 3 deliveries late and rude. Tonight's half hour early, cold, soggy and again rude on the phone. Order £6 more expensive than the website. Goodbye.

The food was very fresh. We didn't have to wait at all to be served. Sadly one the waiters was exceptionally miserable but he was working working hard so we'll let him off!

The worst "Chinese" food I have ever eaten and nothing like food in China or Hong Kong. The waiter said that the added sugar was for local tastes! The shredded smoked chicken arrived coated in sugar crystals like mini Yule logs in a Xmas decoration. The chicken in black bean and cashew was in a sugary syrup and when we... More
