I've eaten here numerous times and always had a pleasant experience. The owner is always willing to chat, the food is delicious, the atmosphere is nice. As pointed out in some other reviews, the interior could perhaps do with a little bit of a makeover, but that's just splitting hairs. I can make do as long as the food is... More

This was a strange experience but not one we will repeat on balance The good: the staff were pleasant, the menu looked quite exciting, the hot pot was tasty and the pickled cucumber had a lovely chilli kick The bad: the house special starter turned out to be deep fried bread (why??), the stuffed aubergine came swimming in Thai-style sweet...

Never really took the trouble of writing any review before, but thought I would make an exception in this case. We booked in advance and arrived on time. The restaurant was 90% empty (that served a big clue); we sat and we sat and we were not offered any drinks. It took two requests before we were asked what drinks... More

We hadn't been here for years and found little had changed. Setting and service were both soothing and nostalgic. But the food was less bland than we remembered and was well above the local Chinese norm. Prices are very reasonable.

Tucked away off South Street in Chichester, you could easily miss this delightful Chinese restaurant. From a previous visit I knew they served a set lunch menu which varies throughout the week. Soup of the day was chicken and leek. For main course I chose sweet & sour chicken, followed by fresh fruit salad. All very tasty, and the portions... More

We have had dinner here a few times and also had the quick lunch menu. This feels very much a family business, family members of all ages seem to be present. We always enjoy the food, maybe not the most authentic Chinese but as good as any locally. Food is always freshly cooked with lovely fresh ingredients. It seems a... More

A last minute decision - but a great choice for a fast tasty lunch. Slightly hidden away, just behind South Street, but easy to find. I would recommend it!

We visited as a team for our Xmas meal, staff were very friendly and welcoming, the young daughter is adorable and was enjoying her Taylor Swift songs, the food was delicious and hot and nothing was too much trouble, will visit again and again. Thank you Confucius. Great evening great food and lovely staff, will be back!
