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

Brilliant! I come here quite often and I am never disappointed! As a vegetarian it can be difficult finding something different but here they do a sweet and sour tofu dish which is delicious and I always get every visit because it is so yummy! Last time I visited was for my birthday with my partner, sister, and her partner.... More

My other half is originally from Bangor too and he has also visited this restaurant a long, long time. First of all it... More

I went here based on a recommendation - never again! Restaurant was closed when we arrived at 4.50pm. I enquired when the restaurant would be open & they immediately opened up to provide us with takeaway food. The fact that they could immediately open up the kitchen should have been the first warning sign. Anyway, the lady who served us... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant following the mainly positive reviews...however I was sorely disappointed. We ordered the sharing platter at £13.50 which consisted of four chicken wings[tiny]~two small pancake rolls two prawn crackers with seaweed etc....this was a miniscule portion for the price. The mains were ok but no better than a supermarket or decent takeaway.... More

Food was delicious, staff were really friendly and great value for money. Chinese food can sometimes be greasy, sugary or too garlicky, but not here! If we lived near here we would be regulars.

My second time eating here today, and yet again the food and service were faultless. Really friendly staff that make you feel welcomed, and nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely be coming back soon

I came to this restaurant after a day out in Bangor after reading some of the good reviews on tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. We arrived at an unsociable 3pm with the lights off, we thought it was closed. However, the lady at the front desk was extremely accommodating and opened the restaurant up just for me and my girlfriend.... More
