The best Chinese meal of all time

Went there today with my boyfriend and we ordered set meal 2. All of the food was delicious. The meat and fish were very decent quality (a lot better than most places). The staff are nice and the service is excellent. Don't go anywhere else!

What a wonderful treat. We went yesterday to celebrate Chinese New Year. The restaurant was throbbing so we had a bit of a wait. After we got a table the service was excellent and the food delicious.

We visited on Valentines day, chancing our luck as we hadn't booked, but hoping that arriving early we'd be OK (we were off the see a show after, so early was good!) We were greeted with an apology that they were only doing a set menu as it was Valentines day, but as we decided to leave and try somewhere... More

Food good, portions average - a bit pricey and watch out for the service charge, for 2 people over £6.50

As soon as you enter you are shown to a table. Even though restaurant is full my order for wine was taken and give me time to chose from the extensive menu. Then delight of the great food. The only problem is that forty miles from my home, but I always visit in Brighton.

The restaurant building looks quit nice but the service is more than terrible. First of all I could hardly understand the waitress' English. Moreover she was very unfriendly the way that my friend and I felt discriminated. While eating the waitress took away my plate with the excuse that she did not see me eating any more even though my... More

Best Chinese food I've ever had!!! We got a set menu for two and it was delicious, although it's a bit pricey it's worth it!! Duck was soft and succulent, all dishes piping hot when served and all tasted amazing!! Would definitely recommended coming to this restaurant!!

Visited on New Years Eve for my daughters birthday for lunch. We ordered Dim Sum and some other dishes off the main menu as the kids did not find The Dim Sum to their taste. All the food was excellent and the service was as well. Great value at lunch as well. We saw a lot of Chinese people eating... More
