A birthday dinner for my father in law but we booked late & needed a table for 8. We were sat by the kitchen but the food more than made up for it. It is a little bit pricey & the staff can be quiet but the food speaks volumes & it is defo the best Chinese around.

Impromptu dinner at what could well be the best Chinese food in Portsmouth. This restaurant is quite unassuming and far from glossy but the food is superb. The giveaway really is that it's alway full of Chinese diners. Must tell you something.

Although we live in London where there are thousands of Chinese restaurants, this one is our favourite. Friendly and excellent taste!

Service very prompt, the starter with ribs are excellent, could have had them as a main. Surprisingly large restaurant, yet looks small and unassuming as you go down the High Street, and very close to the train.

I have been going this place for while, it's truly great food. Every time everything they cook is spot on. If you like Chinese food don't look more. I love their soft self crab, sea bass with Thai chilly and crispy duck, menu is pretty big but trust me it's good.

Good service, and a good standard of food although prices are a little high. Pleasant atmosphere, lean and comfortable.
