Great chinese food in a lovely atmosphere. Hard to find any faults, just that it can get busy during the weekends. So its best to book.

Service fantastic, food consistently good, if you gave up on Maxin's a few years ago like we did then it's well worth giving it another go, it won't disappoint

I've no idea what's happened to this place but have just had the most disgusting takeaway. The chicken curry consisted of big lumps of dried out chicken ( definitely looked processed rather than fresh) & chunks of completely raw onion One of the rice was meant to be fried but they both looked the same. This used to be one... More

Really tasty food, served by very plesant staff. Reasonably priced too. Nice clean interior. Pity its in Kirkcaldy, a place where no one can actually be bothered venturing out to. Lets hope wee gems like this stand the test of time. Hope so.

Great food in a nice relaxing atmosphere. I could not fault any of the dishes we had and would say both the crispy duck middle course and my starter of salt and pepper ribs were quite outstanding. Top marks all round. We will be back soon Al'. B.

We came across this Chinese restaurant by accident last night. One of the best meals I've ever had. Staff were lovely and the food is to die for. The restaurant was so warm and welcoming with very tasteful decore and lovely polished cutlery and glasses set out on lovely linen. Couldn't fault it and can't wait to go back there!!!... More
