All Chinese takeaways closed in area on a Tuesday so popped in here to eat. I used to come here when my daughter was growing up and thought it was a great place, but i feel that over the years it has lost it's sparkle. The staff on arrival were very solemn with no real enthusiasm to serve us. I... More

Firstly, you get to eat yourself under the table for under £10. What's not to like? Partner and I were seated in a relatively quiet corner overlooking the boating lake which was lovely. It was almost 6pm on a Saturday evening and we were seated immediately. The food was all takeaway quality Chinese food. Plenty of choice including all of... More

Been here a few times. Its just standard. Sometimes it looks a bit grubby and dirty inside. Food all over the place. Sometimes its okay. Food sometimes looks like its been out for hours and hours. Sometimes its fresh. Just depends when you go or how busy it has been. Its okay for a cheap big out with mates

Eat as much tasty but unhealthy food as you can for £8.50 I would probably eat here once every three months when I was feeling really hungry. The welcome was really friendly, the interior and tables were basic, the food was really tasty. Stuff yourself silly !

We dropped in for lunch, It was very busy and noisy being half term, but we enjoyed a good lunch. The advantage of the restaurant is being self service. Would not go every week but nice to visit once in a while. If you manage to get a window table (often these are for two ) you get a nice... More

We arrived at 8pm so there were still 2 hours to go until the restaurant stopped serving. Indian food was completely empty and was not replenished in the hour we were there.
