So lets look at the negatives. Staff quite unsmiling, and I found the menu quite confusing. The Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup wasn't any great shakes either. Not enough veg in the Nooodle Soup However outweighed by the positives. Other than that very satisfied with the quality and tastiness of the... read more

The menu is incredibly large and very authentic. I'd recommend the baby octopus, which was pretty good I must say. We ordered several dishes, all of which were very tasty. I'm impressed.

Two couples, went for birthday celebration. Very nice surroundings, we sat in a booth, bit gawdy but nevertheless kind of what you expect. Service was A1, very attentive, in fact if anything the place was over-staffed. The menu - where do I start?? it must have been about 20 pages long, had things on it I had never seen on... More

Myself and a friend had lunch here on a Sunday. The decor is very Chinese with red pillars and generally red/black interior. Very smart. The tables are sort of screened so although it is quite a big restuarant, it gives some privacy. Service was quick and waiting staff very pleasant. I had 'painter chicken' which was excellent. We might have... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch. There is an interesting selection of dishes on a short lunch menu, which offers some pleasing alternatives to the usual suspects Food is good. Chilli poached chicken zinged with a great balance of chilli heat and mouth numbing Sichuan pepper. A real highlight. Daquian pork was fiery, but too sweet for my taste. Service... More

Started off well, we'd booked a table with it being a Saturday night, but there weren't plenty of tables left, so you could probably not bother. Greeted and shown to our table, the staff were very pleasant and polite. The other three members of my party had half a crispy duck to share for starters which they all enjoyed. I... More

Am a regular here. Recommended by HK and mainland Chinese folk. Dim Sum pretty good but the rest of the menu is superb whether the lunchtime, banquet or a la carte. I recently enjoyed the mutton in chilli oil and the Beijing duck but every dish I have had with family, friends or for work has been great.

Went here on a Sunday evening with my husband. Had to wait about 10 mins to be seated eveb though tables were free, and at this point were not given the option to buy drinks. Fork on the table was dirty and when asked for it to be changed no apology from staff. Crispy beef was very chewy and quite... More
