Nice chilled Saturday night

Popped in here with my wife. Service very good. Atmosphere which surprised me 9pm on Saturday night, quite empty, so lots of room for chilled night. Chilled draft lager at 4 squid a pint always a good sign. Food was very good, excellent price for too £30 , even with staters . Worth a try,

Desperate to find one decent Indian or Oriental restaurant in the Chichester area, I fell upon Confucius on the basis of its long sporadic tenure in the city. It was a disastrous experience. The Beijing Duck was old dry and cold. The speciality dish Stir Fried Chicken with chilli, the Broccoli with 'oyster sauce' was disgusting and inedible, the sesame... More

After being closed for sometime i'm happy to say this lovely little place is now open again, and what a treasure it is too. We went on a Friday night and had arguably one of the best nights for a long time. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and the ambiance is lovely. We ordered a set menu and were... More

This is the best Chinese food restaurant and I have visited lots around the Country! The food is so fresh and non greasy and service is excellent. Lovely staff who are welcoming and hard working to ensure you have the very best. 5 * you won't find any better!

Ate here last Saturday and was really impressed. The food was excellent and the service was even better. Even on a busy Saturday night we were not rushed and even when we couldn't decide on what to have for our main course, our starter and duck order were taken and delivered giving us plenty of time to make up our...

We went for the set menu and the food was truly awful. The shrimp chips were greasy, the special fried rice was stodgy and one of the "meat" dishes was so weird we weren't actually sure what it was....then to cap it off we weren't given everything that was supposed to be part of the set menu, but still charged...

Hidden down a little side street this little place is worth hunting out. The food is very good, the staff very welcoming and friendly. One of the best Chinese meals I've had. Not expensive either!
