Situated on a small parade of shops on the Roundhay Road. Plenty of parking outside or opposite in the service road. A smart restaurant on a drab parade, nicely decorated inside, in a typical Chinese style. We were pleasantly greeted on arrival and shown to our reserved table. Drinks order quickly taken and executed. A large varied menu was available.... More

The food here is consistently excellent. On this visit (a Friday at 7.00pm) we had the mixed starters and crispy duck between 3 of us. The prawn toast here is fantastic. Mains were all good as well - just love their king prawn with cashewnuts. Prices are reasonable, particularly as when spending over £25 you get the dish of the... More

So since my last review we've been 4 more times and again at the weekend. Food is excellent. Presentation is impressive too. Not had a bad dish and tried quite a few now! The food is consistently good with every visit, and dishes we have repeated are equally consistent between visits. Had relatives with us on this visit and they... More

Lovely staff and food here and nice peaceful bit of Leeds to visit with plenty of places to park nearby. It seemed very popular for takeaways, with people coming in and out constantly :)

The food and service were excellent but the room was very brightly lit and the decor was depressing.

My girlfriend and I went here last night for an un-planned pit stop dinner. Its probably the 5th or 6th time we have been and the food has been exceptional every single time. Not only is the food great, but the service is always really attentive and the food always comes really quickly. Last night we had a particularly good... More

Me and my family are one of their most regular customers since the restaurant opened. And all our visits have been spot on. We normally order steamed Seabass (I am a health freak) with ginger and spring onion. Not only it is healthy it is also delicious as all their fish are fresh every time. We also love their sweet...
