I brought discerning parent in laws who in London and know a good Chinese restaurant. Living here for a while it has not been easy to find a genuine Chunese restaurant that would rival those in London. This comes close to it - Chinese menu with classic staples but surprisingly sophisticated dishes too - the crab was excellent, as was... More

Definitely the best Chinese food in the area. Amazing belly pork and the best chicken balls ever. Sweet and Sour King Prawns are the best thing on the menu.

Had a family here recently as we realised we had not been for a year or so! Glad to report the food is as exquisite as ever. It is always reassuring to see the menus in Mandarin with a huge regular clientele of Asian customers. The food was brought to us in literally no more than 8 minutes from ordering,... More

Welcome and service was typically friendly and efficient, warm and comfortable but in need of a refurb we waited for the food, we had the set menu with a few extras. The food was perfect, hot, fresh and fully of... More
