Great restaurant and good to see the quality is back

I attended a friend's 50th birthday for which the room upstairs was hired. This was in Nov and after having had a great party, I arranged my office Xmas dinner there on 18/12. The food was brilliant. Portions were very generous and the staff were very good. There were no complaints from colleagues... read more

We have been going here since 1990 and always been looked after and the food has always been good. The new owners have looked after us for the last two major group bookings. We went to eat last night as a family and the food was top quality and the service was great as well

I order here mainly on take away and have been there this month. Nice meal and looked fresh. I had ordered noodle with tofu but had received something else...I didn't complain and ate it...it was nice, but keep in mind that some waiters cannot understand English. There is still room for improvement. The manager/owner is friendly and accommodating .
