We arrived early Friday evening. We were asked if we had booked a table which we hadn't on his occasion but we would still expect to be treated courteously.

Adequate atmosphere and the food is of good standard. Not the best Chinese food I have eaten but certainly not the worst. Prices are higher at the weekend, I can understand his from a business perspective but quite frustrating. Saying that, I would be happy to return here perhaps for lunch instead.

Came here with a group of friends in early December. The place was busy as you expect before Christmas. Food was nice and reasonably priced. Service was average. Probably would not return. But this is an ok place to visit.

A group of 5 of us visited 96 for a midday 'all inclusive' buffet meal. I have been to 96 on many occasions and always find the food is good quality and a really good price at £8.50 for the lunchtime buffet. This price includes starters, main and a dessert.. I especially like the way the food is cooked to... More

Unfortunately the title says it all. My wife and I used to go here all the time because to food and service was great. However we have not been out for a while but when we had the opportunity we decided to go to 96. The starter was nice as were the duck rolls. However the main was really disappointing.... More
