Food definitely the best along the... More

Having received a flyer through the door today we decided to try the rebranded menu. Our meal arrived very late and when unpacked was stone cold. On contacting the restaurant we were told that they were very busy and only had one driver. So I presume we were not the only ones to be getting cold, expensive food delivered late.... More

Most of the food tasted as though it had been microwaved from Iceland. The starters in particular are identical to the chilled/frozen starter packs from most supermarkets. There are better Chinese restaurants within 100 yards of this.

Its amazing place to dine. I am a vegetarian and I went to this place with my wife for the first time as I am new in this location. Oh my God, we had such a wonderful vegetarian meal. The staff advised that this place is now being re-branded and introduced new dishes in the menu. We had sea spice... More

We had dinner here with my family. It is a regular choice by my children as the staff are very friendly. The food is the best Chinese food in the area. It's fresh and there is plenty of it. The banquet deal is also great value for money. Ignore the negative reviews. I guarantee you the food is great .

Went here with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We went for the Emperor Menu, which is not something we have tried anywhere else. It allowed us to try a variety of dishes, which otherwise we would not have considered. So a great way to try smaller quantities of dishes you are not sure about! Quality of dishes was... More

Rude staff, food is terrible - rubbery and reheated. They were not happy we chose to order a la carte instead of the fixed price all you can eat. Drinks were eye-wateringly expensive. They are currently accepting cash only and advertising 10% off the bill due to their card machine 'not working' but this has been the case for months,... More
