Great food and service. Book well in advance. Set menu for four is so much food that it is hard to finish even for big eaters.

Best hot and sour soup we've ever sampled, crispy aromatic duck was delicious however the mixed hor d'oeuvres lacked quality and taste. Mains were ok, we had the shredded chilli chicken (which we wouldn't have again) and the Singapore noodles. We would return and choose more carefully from the menu. The service was very poor.

I do not like Chinese food too much but this definitely changed my opinion. The food was delicious, expertly made and totally moreish.....we went twice during our 10 day stay and we had to book as it's always so busy. The staff were all very professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
