I heard mixed reviews but have to say I was pleasantly surprised. My youngest is a tad fussy but there were no complaints from him. Food was very tasty and plentiful certainly not greasy as some Chinese dishes can be. Service was good but a little slow at bringing all the dishes out together and serving drinks. This wouldn't stop me from going back and we're looking forward to a return visit when we're next in Bakewell.

Always had good food from here before changing hands. Just thrown the most expensive takeaway in the bin.!!!
Duck fried rice, Chicken fried rice, Plain chow mien, sweet and sour sauce. £21.50.! Was more like boiled rice with peas and a few bits of prossessed chicken and bits of over cooked egg. Chow mien was inedible. Phoned up and complained. Wanted me to take the food back.??? Don’t think so.!!! . I wouldn’t recommend this place at all now. Such a shame. I’ve taken a photo of the chicken fried rice and will try to put if on.

No finger bowls offered with spare ribs eaten by hand. Had to request one. Only one fork laid per setting. (no knives). After use with starter, waitress placed dirty forks back on clean table cloth ready for main course. Not very pleasant.
We all had the fixed price lunch. Food not to everyone's liking.
Shall not rush to return.

It is a busy Chinese, we had a set meal. The chicken and sweetcorn soup was horrid. But the rest of the meal was very nice. If we went back wouldn't have a set meal as the special rice is not the best.
