Good Chinese Food

An under-valued but great little family-run restaurant with a good range of dishes all freshly prepared and cooked. A friendly atmosphere and good service from Steve and Pauline.

Like all trip advisors reviews you do read there are some harsh ones. From my experience this place offers great service and great food. If you're well travelled and have eaten at all kinds of restaurants and different settings then you wouldn't judge a book by its covered. The portions given were generous and the prices are good, recommend giving... More

After getting off the ferry at Dover after a long drive we decided to look for a takeaway rather than fish and chips, found this on TripAdvisor, as mentioned looks dated on out side, however the 3 dishes we had were perfect and would definitely visit and recommend when in the area.

The decor itself and outside looks a little tied and could do with a make over but with a 4 hygiene rating we thought we would pop in and try it. We were met by a pleasant young lady. Seated at a table and ordered. Food arrived very hot and tasted really nice. Can't fault it. Well worth the money.... More

Was looking for a Chinese in Dover several to choose from but picked this one. Situated on high street parking ok meters looks rather run down inside and out but clean. Food was good generous helpings wouldn't say on the cheap side but acceptable. Can of coke £1.90. However would return and recommend.

Was passing through Dover on way home from a trip to Belgium needed a place to eat. Staff were friendly and very helpful as I haven't eaten too much Chinese food before they recommended stone dishes. Good luck's spicy prawns were a-maz-ing! And the Cantonese style chicken was a revelation (this is about the only thing I'd eaten elsewhere). It... More

Was only passing through Dover / Kent on the weekend and thought I would nip into Good luck again for a meal. Only ordered a speedy starter of chicken and sweetcorn soup, crispy wontons (highly recommend) they had changed their sweet and sour recipe from last time as the colour was different, but the taste was just as good, if...
