i was part of a big group booking. It should have been a lovely evening but there just wasn't enough food. Once we left the restaurant we came home and had to eat again. The restaurant took a good price per head for the food and it was a massive group of 75 people. There was barely enough food to... More

On both occasions there were quite a few Chinese people eating there so that's probably a good recommendation. Service is not great but... More

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.
