We found this food very good. Excellent vegetarian choices. However the bar area leading to the kitchen needs attention.Dirty black bags on the floor. Dirty cloths on the sink. Untidy area.Looking generally unclean. We didn't notice this until we were leaving the restaurant. If we had seen this on the way in we probably would not have eaten there.

The food was lovely, the staff were lovely, the decor is back in the 80s though! We just walked in on Friday evening without checking trip advisor, it was empty which worried us but all was ok. Nothing special, no need to dress up but nothing bad to write about it. By the time we left it was packed so... More

A quirky old fashioned Chinese restaurant at the top of a flight of stairs. No problems with service as in previous posts and the food was well cooked and above average. There is a fantastic range of starters although the waitress could not answer our questions about some of them. Would recommend and visit again when in Plymouth .

We took my father to this Chinese for his first experience of oriental food. It has put him off for life! We ordered our drinks and waited 20 minutes (the restaurant was not busy) and half the order was missing along with a glass of flat coke. Part of the order was a pot of green tea - this arrived...
