I have passed this Chinese for years and always thought it looked a bit uninviting but I popped in tonight for takeaway as when I looked in the window it was full of Chinese people(always a good sign!) Food was amazing all cooked freshly to order and home made including the wafer paper prawns and mini spring rolls. Their own... More

In March 2014, I submitted a rather negative review about a reservation that we had at the lee-on to celebrate a colleague's retirement. You may recall our staff went to decorate the restaurant about an hour before our booking and was met by work-men who said the restaurant was closed. We had a huge hassle finding somewhere else at such... More

A group of 9 of us choose a selection of meals from the menu, though we did have to ask for menus as the set banquet for 8+ people had been placed on table. Food arrived promptly and there was no time delays between everyone's food arriving. The set meal for 2 was very tasty and we were able to... More

Food was ok but the service was terrible, the restaurant was not even busy. The diet cokes were flat the mains came at different times, 2 of us were served 15 minutes after the first 2 had been served. Really disappointing to say the least as have been here a few times but tonight unfortunately was a let down.

A return visit after some time away and the food was as good as ever. Enjoyed the ribs starter and the follow on shredded beef, which is always a delicious dish. Chinese visitors come by the bus load to this restaurant so this says something. However, I did note that shark fin soup was on the menu and this I... More

This place has been a family favourite for many years and although I haven't been in a while it didn't disappoint when I was there recently. Good value for money and the food was as tasty as I remember.

lobster with noodles is delicious. There is a special meal, just ask, that also includes Sea Bass and different other dishes that is absolutely wonderful.

It is where the Chinese go to eat for more authentic type Chinese food. Never disappointed when I come here, no frills, but as long as the food is good who cares.

It was a cold damp evening but the food warmed me up! Chinese tea with sweet and sour king prawns, excellant service and if the Chinese eat there it must be good, need I say more.
