Great food

Very impressed by this little place. Food was really very good and good portions. 2 of us had 3 mains , chow mein, rice, crispy seaweed, to share (enough food for 3/4) total £26 ! Fantastic value. You take your own wine/ beer but they do sell soft drinks/ coffee/tea. Service was very good and... read more

I'm not really one for talking badly of a place but this place was awful. My colleagues always liked going here before a night out due to the BYOB and the price. The last time we went my sister came with me and we ordered the chicken satay & the chow mien to share. A few hours later we both... More

Visited Mayfair several times over the past 5 years. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside and the interior is very basic but the food is always excellent and great value. You can take your own alcohol which makes it even better. I would recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment, as they are always very busy!

What more can you ask for bring your own booze says it all. The foods great although there can be abit of a wait. Service is ok but could do with a few more staff. To summarise this restaurant is great for groups, really nice food and worth a visit.

We visited this little chinese just up the road from the town centre chain restaurants late one Tuesday evening. Food was excellent - the sea bream in particular a highlight! Would visit again for a last minute supper.

Looking from the outside, this clearly should have been a shop with a flat or something above but it has been turned into a Chinese restaurant. Without a doubt this is the best Chinese food I have ever had. What makes this restaurant unique is that you bring your own drink. This can be whatever you want, alcohol / soft... More

The restaurant is pretty plain - no frills, no mood lighting - just clean and friendly service. The menu is quite extensive, and incredibly cheaply priced. We were really pleased with our dishes - well cooked, tasty and good sized portions. We had 3 mains, one fried rice and a pot of delicious Chinese tea - all for less than... More

I've never eaten so cheaply in a restaurant. The quality and service were not compromised either. Will be coming back.

We have been frequenting this Chinese restuarant for years and the standard does not waiver, excellent food at really good prices. The menu is varied to accommodate all tastes and 4 people can have a starter and main course for less than £50. Bonus. This place is well run by Michael the owner and the service is good, the food...
