Very nice

Went as a couple and was very pleased with the service, food and price. Restaurant is a bit dated but don't let that put you off

Recommended by a student at the university. I didn't pay the bill, so not sure of the total charge for a party of three. The food was delicious and the portions larger than expected. The staff were very polite and prompt. Will definitely return on my next visit!

£95 for 3, mind you we did eat a lot! Half a duck, then 3 more appetisers (favourite was the spicy beef patties) then our 5! mains (favourite was the sweet and sour chicken and the special prawn - in a tempura style batter). All hot and fresh, service with a smile, would definitely go again (if you are going... More

Found this lovely restaurant online while I was in Bangor for business. We were greeted by a very friendly and polite gentleman who took us to a table and took our drinks order. The menu is packed full of tempting dishes so choosing was very difficult! Very clearly laid out and good descriptions too. Another polite lady then came to... More

Having lived in Hong Kong during the 80's, I have since had a passion for Cantonese and Southeast Asian cuisine. From the moment I walked in I knew I was in good hands.

Stayed here on business a few times in the summer. The staff are extremely friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The Chinese food is really good but a tad expensive. The breakfast is really good. Large selection. The only thing letting this place down is the wifi which is intermittent at best. I've stayed in several rooms and get the... More

I came here with my wife as I've always been a big fan of Asian food. I absolutely loved this place. The food was so tasty and fragrant with plenty of fresh ingredients. The menu was pretty big so I asked the waitress for her recommendations, I highly recommend you do this because she suggested a crispy king prawn dish... More
