Lovely restaurant with nice friendly staff, two course meal with drinks for 4 was a very reasonable £75. Although the whole meal was enjoyable, especially loved the deep fried crab claws and the 'crispy' spare rib starter.

Went on a wednesday night and was quite busy so I would advise booking beforehand. Had the vegetarian banquet which serves 2 for £36, including soup, starter, mains, rice, fresh fruit and chinese tea. All very tasty.

We visited this restaurant recently when spending a weekend in Cockermouth. This restaurant was recommended to us by friends who live in Cockermouth. We were not disappointed . A lovely friendly young waiter gave a good explanation of certain dishes and pointed us in the right direction as to what dishes we would enjoy. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening... More

It must be 5 years since I'd been to a chinese restaurant as there's none in my area worth visiting. I went here with 2 friends & had the set menu for 3. I judge a good chinese by its hot & sour soup and this one was really good, as were the main courses, all nicely spicy but not... More

we called in on the off chance of a table on the back a local shopkeeper's recommendation. Despite the place being really busy we were lucky enough to be given a table. Well worth the visit. Food hot and very well cooked. Portion size was good. Prices were acceptable. I think the constant stream of customers calling in for takeaways... More
