By some margin the worst Chinese food we have eaten and the worst food in the Lake District we have had in the last 7 years. Nothing positive to say about this place.

Walked in and greeted warmly. We chose to have the set meal for 2 which worked out as £30.

One of the best takeaways we've had. Singapore chow mein was delicious, as was the king prawn curry. Hubby had Singapore fried rice and beef with mushrooms and ribs to start. All delicious and very good value.

The food is average. My girlfriend and we had egg fried rice (which didn't have any egg in it) soft noodles with bean sprouts and onions, sweet and sour chicken, and chicken in chilli sauce. We have had much better, and wouldn't eat from here again.

The food was nice and just made to order. Great veggie options. We ordered a takeaway of salt and pepper chicken and beancurd in black bean sauce; both really nice and good value for money.

We were rather surprised to find such an excellent Chinese Restaurant! The food were simply delicious and very bit authentic Chinese cuisine. The service staff were truly friendly and we enjoyed 2 nights dinner at the same place. Awesome and highly recommended!

A regular visitor to Windermere with family living here, however we had never been to a Chinese in the area. The staff gave a very friendly welcome, a table wasn't available but they said we could sit and have a drink or come back in 10 minutes and they would have one ready for us. The waiters were attentive and... More

We arrived late in the day and needed somewhere for a quick meal, we like Chinese food but often find it too salty - Not here! The food was really nice, the welcome was friendly & the service was good. What more can you ask for!
