No regrets just a bit cold, when sat downstairs every time someone comes I the heat from the whole building goes out and it was freezing for ages after. You may be hot running around but when your just sat there and that... read more

Thought I'd try a different Chinese, this is the highest ranking on TA for Penzance. But unfortunately it was nowhere near as good as my usual Chinese in Hayle. I had fried rice, foo young, and sweet and sour chicken. All seemed to taste of the same stale cooking oil. The rice was bland and the egg dish was dry.... More

Had a couple of takeaways last week whilst attending a family bearevement in PZ. Food was cooked fresh, hot, plentiful and good value. Unlike some takeaways wasn't up all night drinking due to MSG! One of the best I've had

Had a fab long weekend in Cornwall and on last night decided to eat casual ... What a mistake.. This place is well recommended but I can't understand why. Arrived and sat upstairs waiting for a table..... There were only two were tables occupied. Had a glass of wine which I returned due to lipstick on glass. Taken downstairs where... More

I've been coming here for years, normally as a large(ish) group for a birthday or some celebration. It's always served incredible food, there's always too much to eat (no complaint there!) and the staff are efficient and very polite. The whole restaurant is set out and decorated almost as if you're in China! If you like Chinese food, you'll love... More

We booked this restaurant on the number of good reviews regarding the food. We knew from the reviews that this place could do with a makeover but it was the food we came for. We were really disappointed - nothing at all special - the Chicken Chow Mein was really bad - we have never seen or tasted chicken like... More
