Myself, Jude and her son Alex visited on New Years Eve for a meal before going for drinks. I had booked a table as expected it to be busy which of course it was and rightly so.

Having visited Thailand last year, I feel I have a somewhat upperhand when it comes to critiquing Thai food. This place is amazing. The food is some of the best I've had. The staff are warm and friendly. Will be going again very soon!!!

This was a nice restaurant with good quality food. There was plenty of food provided. The staff were extremely pleasant which makes such a difference. They were also very accommodating as one of us wanted a slightly different sauce that wasn't on the menu and they were only too happy to do it. It was clean and well presented.

She suggested oyster beef with extra garlic. The oyster sauce was... More

We visited this restaurant last night but hadn't booked so worried we might not get in but must have timed it just right as we got in before it started to get really busy. I have been here twice before and it was superb both times so keep going back as you know what your going to get, excellent food,... More

A lovely little Chinese that has a rather smaller than usual menu but what it does it does very well. staff are delightful and very reasonably priced. IMO more for a quick meal though rather than a night out or celebration but possibly the best Chinese in Leeds.

Several more visits later, always a warm welcome and excellent food. Don't forget the chef's special offer of the day (a pound when you spend around twenty). Highly recommended. See my previous reviews for more details.
