This restaurant is our usual lunch stop when we visit Northampton. It is quite a large restaurant with polite, quick and efficient service.

A firm favourite of ours and the Dim Sum is fresh and fantastic. I would recommend those who have not tried Dim Sum to give it a go. You must try the 3 roast meat platter too, which combines roast duck, roast pork belly with the most amazing light crackling and char siu pork. Delicious!

3 of us dropped in on week day evening (without a booking) we found it surprising busy. Quite a large proportion of the guests appeared to be 'Chinese nationals' something I regard as a positive of authentic cooking. I commented to my family 'last time I was in here it, it was a motorcycle dealership', then proceeded to calculate it... More

Ate here with colleagues for a team meal. Food was good if you like 70s style Chinese dishes. Service erratic - some waitresses sullen, others charming and funny. Food arrived fairly quickly. Everyone left feeling full. Note they don't take MasterCard.

This is our regular Chinese restaurant. The food is excellent! The restaurant itself is clean. The service could be better and the staff might be a little more friendly... Despite this though this restaurant is highly recommended.

Visited here with my friends for lunch. The food was nice but a bit oily. Service is really quick, it's good when just wanna have a meal basically. We are Asian so the staffs kept speaking Chinese to us without asking if we are Chinese or not even we spoke English to them. Do feel a little bit annoying. So... More

Been here several times over the past couple of years, but always wanted to try their lunchtime dim sum menu. Well worth the wait!!! Excellent choice and all nicely served and presented. Give it a try.

Average Food, Average Service but nice decor. If you want the tried and tested Chinese that your Grandmother had then this place is the place.
