Do not be put off by the entrance as once inside you will find a nice comfortable restaurant and great food at a reasonable price.

Had not been here for many years and anticipated a lovely anniversary meal. Alas not so..cold satay skewers on bed of insipid lettuce and watered down satay sauce. Cold plates for main meant food quickly chilled and nothing memorable about either dish. Sullen waitress did not help the ambience. Only positive was the house wine. Will not be returning in...

We stopped in for lunch on a very busy shopping day. I'd lived in Aberdeen over 10 years, walked past 100's of times but didn't even know this place existed! We only had a single course and both enjoyed and was plenty for lunch. Service was quick and efficient and food was good value. Lots of Chinese customers too which... More

Had dinner here and ordered the chicken noodle soup and the honey chili chicken. First the noodle soup was very nice, especially the broth, and I'd highly recommend it. The honey chili chicken was rather disappointing. The chicken was excellent texture wise, and tasted nice, but the sauce was a big let down. Either I got the sweet and sour... More

Great start to our Hogmanay celebrations, we enjoyed the banquet menu, great food, fantastic service and well priced. Selection of various starters served before being offered either Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup or Aromatic Crispy Duck. All six of us chose the Duck, good choice, plenty of duck cucumber and spring onion, but not enough pancakes. We asked for more :... More

Absolutely outstanding! Four of us ordered off the Dim Sum menu for lunch, along with ½ a duck and pancakes. Gorgeous selection of Dim Sum, obviously freshly prepared and SO tasty. The duck was outstanding too; moist and flavourful with beautifully crispy skin. Pleasant décor and ambiance and the bill was very reasonable for what we had. Can’t wait to... More

Chinese food was good but was sort of bland, it didnt really taste like chinese food was meant to be. Spring rolls were good but the chicken dishes were just too bland. Staff was friendly

Had some time to kill before a show in HMT Aberdeen . Decided to go for something to eat and decided on a Chinese restaurant. To say it was as good as It used to be was an understatement. We had a set meal for two people and it was fantastic. Clean plates all round and the staff were friendly,efficient... More

Visited for supper after the theatre matinee. Service efficient and friendly. The food was plentiful, nicely cooked and tasty. Have dined here many times and things are consistent. Nice surroundings and decoration in the restaurant. Would definitely recommend a visit.
