I’ve had quite a few takeaways from here and the food is really tasty. It’s like a healthy home cooked meal rather than the mass produced food you get from many restaurants.

The downside is that I think that that is what it really is, with everything cooked from scratch, so the kitchen has a devil of a time getting food out at speed.
I’m not sure I would be tempted to eat in as no one wants to be hanging around waiting for ages for their food. But if you want a cracking takeaway this is the place. Just be sure to order early and if they say it will be an hour and a half, don’t be tempted to turn up early to collect because it just won’t be ready!

We've been here 3 times now and absolutely love it! Our most recent visit was on New Years eve with friends. We were greeted by very friendly staff who made us feel very welcome. Service was perfect also, very attentive. The food is delicious, the sizzling beef is AMAZING!!!!!! Food came out quickly. Portions are massive and very reasonably priced so it's great value for money.

A few constructive criticism points:

1) The decor is slightly bare, a few more things on the walls would make the atmosphere better in my opinion.

2) The Chicken in cashew sauce tastes great but the pieces of chicken are tiny, bigger pieces would make the dish even better.

3) My favourite Chinese food ever is crispy seaweed and Chef Zhu does not serve this :( If they put this on the menu that would be perfect!

I hope to be returning very soon.

We had the most delicious meal served by extremely friendly staff and yet only four tables were occupied. Plenty of people coming in for takeaway but they are really missing out on a lovely restaurant experience. That said, it was Chinese New Year but no effort was made to highlight this save for a "Happy New Year" after we'd paid the bill. I suspect the management may be a little inexperienced - they definitely missed a trick here. We'll go back and hope for a bit more atmosphere next time.

On recommendation we dropped in here to grab a takeaway for a group of us. Suzy & Ryan were friendly and helpful and the restaurant is very elegant and modern looking. I felt disappointed that we wouldn’t be staying to eat! However, the food we unpacked at home was one of the most delicious and authentic Chinese meals I have eaten in a very long time. Takeaway certainly did not mean a slip in standards, this was most definitely restaurant quality. I look forward to an opportunity to eat in at the restaurant and enjoy the ambience.

Simply beautiful, tasty, 'clean' Chinese food. No MSG, so avoids the unnecessary stickiness and over salty characteristics of so many Chinese restaurants. This place is a favourite of our family.
