Typical Chinese

This is a typical Chinese restaurant with a very extensive menu. It is a bit hit and miss depending on the dishes you order. Stick to the obvious for better quality. Staff are friendly and the space is compact so can be a little noisy if busy. Take care on the stairs, they can be tricky.

I liked the food, very quiet compared to elsewhere. Toilets could do with a look at now and then, but that's enough on that subject as I have eaten there. Staff a bit quick to drop your food and run, no chance to ask for another drink or anything, gone in the kitchen. But the food was nice.

The food was great by far the best Chinese food i have had and ive been to a lot of Chinese restaurants, the service was quick and very friendly.

We've dined here on many occasions previously and always been delighted. However, on this occasion we were left terribly disappointed. We were a party of ten, we were crammed into an alcove at the back of the restaurant and worse still two further couple were shoe horned in behind us. I could not stand up from my seat, my brother...

For what it was, this wasn't the best it could have been. I've been there several times before and found the place a little worse for wear than the previous times. The food came out in dribs and drabs with us waiting sometimes up to ten minutes for a drink even though there was only two tables (five customers in... More

we booked a family meal here 2 weeks in advance, there were 10 of us and we were squashed into an area which resembled an old fashioned gypsy caravan which included a low ceiling. To add insult to injury there were another 2 tables at the end and one of our party was pressed up against a floor to ceiling... More

I reviewed this restaurant in July last year and justifiably awarded 5 stars. I will say at this juncture the food was and still is excellent. We again visited this last weekend as a family party of ten, our booking had been made two weeks before and we promptly showed up at 1930hrs. We were ushered to an area of... More

I have been here twice. The first time with my wife was quite good. The second time with my son, we could not eat more than half the meal because it was just too salty. I complained politely during the meal but was not offered any help; I complained after the meal (which I paid for in full - more... More
