Massively disappointed by the local Chinese restaurants when I moved to the area. The was the last one I tried but is my favourite by far. Food is always great and the set menus offer good variety It's a bit of a strange setting; decor is dated and the there's sometimes one of the (presumably owner's) kids sat at one... More

The restaurant was quite quiet, but we had nice starters and main course with drinks for £20 a head. I was very pleased with it and will go back.

Have visited here a number of times over the last 10 years, always had great service and wonderful food, however it just seemed a little tired this time. It was empty and needed a facelift, the food was okay but below it's normal par. Real Shame.

I remember going when I was younger and the taste of Chinese in Chichester blew me away! I was from that point on that I liked this type of food and then headed to China.

I have been to this restaurant lots of times before, but I was disappointed this time maybe because it was just after Christmas, but the food was poor I asked for sweet corn soup and got sweet corn with crab and the waitress every 2 minutes was watching the table as if to say hurry up and get out and...

Should have been alerted by the shabby restaurant and cooking smell when we went in. I asked for vegetarian spring rolls but we were only given my friends choice of meat ones. We both took one bite and had to spit it out it was rancid. Restaurants response was that we obviously didn't like bamboo! Chinese is one of my... More

Very pleasent service, delicious food and quiet atmosphere make this resturant tucked away off the Main Street worth the short walk.

We found this restaurant on google, we wanted a Chinese and the reviews of this one looked fantastic. We had a peek at their menu in the afternoon when we were passing and noticed that it wasn't a huge restaurant so thought we had better book as it was for Friday night. When we got there at a little after... More

This is a lovely restaurant for the evening but also offers a very good value deal for lunch. Food is really fresh and service friendly. Definitely a must for anyone visiting Chichester who likes Chinese food.
