The place is way too packed and small. Too many tables stuffed in a small space. Waiter was very rude, ignored us when we requested for water. Food was nice, despite the expensive price.Not recommended, that's so many better Chinese restaurants out there in Chinatown. Or perhaps a takeaway will be great. 地方十分狭窄,桌子跟桌子之间完全没有距离。服务员态度十分糟糕,很跩,说话太催促,完全忽略顾客的要求。服务员看到顾客吃完饭就马上要求结账,让人压迫感十足。食物色香味俱全,但是价钱偏高。不推荐,除非外带。

This is one of the better Chinese restaurants I've been to in this area. The salt and pepper shrimp was fantastic, and the other dishes were very authentic and tasty as well. Prepare to lower your service standards, as with most restaurants in Chinatown -- it's minimally attentive, but fast and no nonsense. Biggest downside was the price, we paid... More

Visited last night, group of 6, and we don't usually scrimp, and on the menu we saw the dreaded words, "Cash only". Thankfully we had a fair amount between all of us, but not to accept cards in this day and age?? Apparently, there has been a delay with the card machine ~ some delay if the menu is printed... More

We ate here based on the raving reviews this place has had for its duck. The crispy duck was very good, the skin was perfect. This dish stood out from the rest. The lychee wine and sake was also very nice. Although this place has had bad scores for its services, we were lucky as we had fabulous and faultless... More

went here for Saturday lunch whilst in Chinatown. we chose it because it was busy and because there were a lot of oriental people in it. and it looked cheerful from the outside. so we were a bit disappointed to be ushered downstairs into a rather dingy basement room. but the menu was extensive and it was very busy so...

Yes the duck is good. But why bother with this one - the service is poor, the ambiance is bad and the rest of the food is not as good for example the spare ribs are much better at queensway where you will get good service and a more pleasant experience

The food is good especially the roast duck which is a popular dish know to most Chinese visitors to London. However, the staff were not as friendly. Good to be friendly to evey customer because every single cent earned counts.

Good food. The Aromatic Crispy Duck (not to be confused with peking duck) is really good and if you eat nothing else, order this. Quite pricey but you may order a quarter bird for 10 quid . Small place, but popular, so be prepared to queue.
