Best Chinese in town

The food at this Chinese is by far the best in town. I wouldn't go anywhere else as I have done in the past and have been disappointed as nowhere else comes close (food wise) On another note the staff...

Great staff and fantastic food. The salt and pepper chicken is the best I have tasted anywhere. Service is great and very helpful staff. Prices are very good especially there lunch time set menu. Home delivery is always fast and the food is just as good as sitting in.

Can't understand the negative reviews. The chinese food is lovely and very authentic. The peking chicken is delightful and have it very often. I love this place and would never go anywhere else for a Chinese.

The place looks terrible from outside, could do with a good wash & the decor inside was pretty dated also. As for the food, it was quite good, i opted for the setmenu, a starter of salt & pepper chicken... More

The food arrived promptly but both starters and mains were not up to standard. Chicken Peking style was served in a sickly and tasteless sauce with a few undercooked onions and rice which... More

So we were greeted very pleasantly and given our table. Our orders were taking, the restaurant was very quiet but we had to wait about 25 minutes for our meal. When we recieved our meal the small Caucasian woman with short hair was very short tempered with our table and was in fact very rude. We were also being watched... More
