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

The duck wraps hit the spot and the main course was decent but something was missing from the over all experience. Maybe it was the waiter who was very abrupt to the young lady he was training? I don't know.

The food was perfect, hot, fresh and fully of... More

I am a vegetarian. I ordered a mixed vegetable curry. I found three pieces of chicken in it, one of which I ate half of, wrongly assuming it would be tofu. The waiter did take the cost of my meal off the bill but it didn't seem like a big deal to them. We won't be back.

We went here with friends for a meal, when we arrived it was busy and we hadn't booked so they offered us a table in 45 minutes so we went for a drink. We were looking forward to the meal but was so disappointed. I asked the waitress for a recommendation and she replied 'I don't know what you like',... More
