Whilst the premises are unassuming from the exterior, this is by far the best Chinese restaurant in the local vicinity. We have visited before but our most recent trip was yesterday for Mother's Day. Could not fault the service which was excellent, and whilst the menu was reduced (buffet on Sundays), there was still a wide choice of food on... More

The quality of food is outstanding. Service is extremely quick. The menu is the most comprehensive I have seen at a Chinese restaurant. Go for the Yum Yum chicken!

I think the title of my review says it all. The only reason I've not given it 1 star is because it was cheap. I went here with a group of friends on Saturday night. We found the staff unfriendly and quite rude. We ordered our food at the bar (the English man was friendly) and sat down at our... More

Had the day off and popped in on a Friday lunchtime - service as usual was efficient, food was wonderful and the wine is very good value. Can recommend having several courses of starters/intermediates and not having a main course - makes a nice change for lunch without being too heavy.

Visited for my mums 65th birthday with friends. Booked well in advance (beginning of December), specifically asked for table 7 in the window. She was the only booking in the diary at the time. Arrived to find we had been put by the door, collection point for takeaways and the toilet! Not impressed. Staff weren't bothered, no apology and met... More

As a family and also with friends have visited this restaurant on quite a few occasions. The food has always been excellent and the service is always very good. The chefs there are always happy to omit an ingredient or even make up something simple for the young ones. The prices are excellent if you decide to go with the... More
