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.

Good quality food to eat in or take away. Not a very large establishment, but well worth a visit. Staff very nice and service very good.

I have previously ordered food from here without any issues. However tonight I placed an order, had confirmation that this order had been accepted but no food had arrived 15 minutes after the latest due time. Tried to call the restaurant but could not get through for another 10 minutes. When I did eventually spoke to someone I was told... More

We would have missed this restaurant had it not been for the enticing smell wafting out from the kitchen vents on the first floor. The restaurant is up a helical staircase and even has the traditional fish tank as you enter. Food was flavoursome, reasonably priced and sensibly sized portions - not too much that it is overwhelming, and not... More

We had a meal in this lovely little Chinese Restaurant, the food was really wonderful, the staff very friendly, as usual we ordered to much food and couldn,t finish it all but that was our fault our mouths were to big for our bellys. The toilets could do with a refurbish but they where clean

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.

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...
