I am very confused indeed. We have had take away from here and the food is lovely. We have been really keen to try the restaurant so my mum and I went for lunch the other day. The waitress didn't greet us, she just pointed at the table we were to sit at (the restaurant was empty) and when I... More

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions. Having tried other Chinese restaurants in the area I have to say that this is by far my favourite. The restaurant is very clean and well laid out. It is a small restaurant and it is advisable to book in advance especially at weekends. The staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

Have used this previously over a number off years and like alot of restaurants it would seem costs are being cut and food is served to this. On my last visit regrettably the food was okay but that is about the best one could say

We've frequented this restaurant for over 15 years now and have always found it a really lovely place to dine - the atmosphere is always very relaxed and you can simply chat with your friends without being bothered and there is always a background noise of laughter and conversation, so not a place to go if you want an intimate,...

We are seasoned travellers and ardent foodies. So we were very impressed that Chatham has a Chinese restaurant to rival the power houses in the main cities. Yes, i agree that this is not fine dining but interms of quality;serving temperature and tastiness, it matches if not surpasses them. I would heartily recommend visiting this establishment. 5 stars.

I have been to a lot of Chinese restaurants and this one is by far the best one I have been to. I have been going here for the last 3 years with friends and the quality of the food is the same each time, always served hot and always a quick service. We always go for the buffet which... More
