Very impressed with this restaurant. Visited on a Friday evening around 7pm, restaurant wasn't too busy and we were able to catch the early bird menu.

Whoa, the food was fantastic with a great choice, they accommodated 14 of us no hassle and honoured the early bird deal they had on. Well worth a visit

This was a real find, went here on a local recommendation with a big group of friends. We were looked after very well throughout and the food was really good, probably the best Chinese meal I've ever had. We had a big combination of meal for 3 and meal for 4 and every course was done very well. The hosts... More

The staff were very friendly and attentive, the restaurant itself is modern inside and has a nice relaxed atmosphere, we had soup... More

This was my first time visiting this restaurant and it certainly won't be the last!! The food was stunning, the courses came out quickly and the portion sizes were generous. To add to that the staff were fantastic. Very friendly and made sure everything was ok. Lovely lovely. Can't wait to go back.
