The service was very good, the food was excellent if a little pricey but then you get what you pay for and this place is really worth the extra cost. Would highly recommend it.

Went here last weekend with the family and had an amazing meal - we chose banquets and the waitress was so helpful as we kept changing our minds and changing the menu - nothing was too much trouble they were attentive and pleasant. The food was amazing with a lot of the dishes coming out on hot sizzling skillets. The... More

We have stopped here before and have always enjoyed the food. We are not able to manage one of their set banquets but now choose selected dishes. Peking duck always has plenty of meat and it was good to see the usual favourite sauces listed that could be matched to a variety of meats / vegetables - all served sizzling.... More

Went here for my fathers birthday and were blown away. Lovely and clean with tasteful decor, staff were brilliant - nothing too much trouble - and the food was amazing. We will definitely be making this our go-to Chinese place from now on!

Do not be put off by the exterior of the restaurant, when we arrived we thought it needed a bit of a facelift and a lick of paint. This is not your run of the mill Chinese restaurant; the menu does not contain the usual 100 plus choices like your usual fast food type Chinese. Don’t expect deep fried crispy... More

Great food, opens at 6pm full by 7pm is I think a tribute to the food. The décor is a little dated and some of the staff could be a little more friendly. There service is fine but very to the point. A little expensive but you don't mind paying when the food is good

On the main, Hoole Road, so easy by car. It's like visiting a private home. Very welcoming. The food is hot and very tasty. Extensive menu and attentive staff. Clean dining room and loos.

The food at the shanghai was good but I found the prices a little high and from previous reviews expected exceptional food. Service was good, the restaurant was very quiet as it was a Monday night. The decor was a little tired and there were stand alone heaters everywhere, but we weren't cold and the staff moved heaters when we... More
