Visited here last week and we decided to go for the banquet option, which proved to be an excellent choice. Duck Pancakes, Chicken & Sweetcorn soup, followed by a good selection of main courses, were all thoroughly enjoyed. The service was fantastic and friendly and as a member of the waiting staff had overheard it was my wife`s birthday, they... More

Last minute booking to eat at this place before they closed for the afternoon, and they really did their best to accommodate us. The food was really nice - one of the best Chinese eat in we've had. Very tasty, and really fresh. A bit on the dearer side but think it was all worth the price. Will definitely come... More

Visited as party of six. Had spring rolls that were advised to wrap in accompanying lettuce and was a good combo. Had crispy beef as a main all very good washed down with a few becks viers which was on draft. Good food at a reasonable price and excellent service

We went here as it had come up on trip advisor. Didn't look like much from the outside and was empty when we arrived as they'd just opened although it filled up quickly within half hour. The lady serving was very very chatty and told us a lot about her recommendations for places to visit on our trip to Darlington.... More

went here on Friday night and we got the banquet for three people. Had the prawn crackers/ aromatic duck and spicy soup for starters and then sizzling beef, chicken/cashew and another beef dish with rice for mains. Finished with fruit and had a couple of beers. All the food was excellent and the staff are all really friendly in here.
