Best Chinese food we have ever had. Cooked to order so a little wait between courses which was good. Excellent service too. Will definitely visit again soon.

This restaurant is amazing. It is an absolute treasure in the centre of North Shields and the food is always of the finest quality, beautifully cooked and beautifully served. The staff are great and most helpful. Just love it!
