The Saints Special Noodles are just diving and going back... read more

We had a very nice evening trying the new version of Saints on an oriental theme, just what Bury St Edmunds needs.

We've eaten here a few times and would highly recommend. A nice informal atmosphere with good service. The menu has a nice range of dishes, a good range for vegetarians with some interesting and appetising choices!
