We went for a lunch menu, which has multiple choices of starters and main courses and a dessert. All dishes were really tasty and pretty much what you would expect from a Chinese restaurant. Asian spice blend gave food a lot of flavour and sweet edge. In fact, dessert size id not the biggest on the lunch offer, but you... More

Having read mainly good reviews on here thought I would give it a go. What a disappointment, we went for the seafood special set menu which on paper sounded great. The food was very bland and most of it was served tepid. Sadly didn't have time to complain or would have sent most of the food back. At £21 per... More

I went here last night as a cocktail making evening with a party of 8 girls. We had snacks on arrival and then started on the cocktails once everyone arrived. We made them ourselves and Yuri the bartender was very funny and explained what we needed to do. After the first couple of cocktails we then had starters which were... More

Thank you so much for an amazing night! The service was amazing and really polite and helpful. We had a cocktail making class which was a lot of fun. The bar man was really good and entertaining. The manager and food was first class. Would recommend you go and try! I know we will be back for sure.

Went there for some traditional Chinese lunch as I usually do every other week. The service was pretty much non existent. One waiter ran around like a headless chicken and too much on his plate to handle. Barely spoke any English. The food I usually order is spot on but on this occasion, it wasn't. The roast duck and rice... More

The vegetarian spring rolls for starters were lovely. I wasnt keen on the chicken satay on skewers. We ordered crispy aromatic duck which was quite fatty but nice flavour. For main we ordered szechaun King Prawns in birds nest and it was to die for. The chicken with cashewnuts in yellow bean sauce was also a brilliant choice. They made... More
