Decor is that of a bog standard Chinese suburban restaurant. Off-white ceiling tiles, paper lanterns, cheap furniture and maneki-neko. Patrons were mostly grey, and disappeared home early, presumably to catch Coronation Street. Service was good, although language difficulties did require pointing at the menu to...More
Hi classicchch, Thanks for your review. Although mixed, we do hope you and your group enjoyed your evening. You received a main dish along with the entrees because 3 in your party ordered entrees and you didn't. We didn't want you to sit there without...More
