We went in just as it was opening. Seated very quickly, usual chit chat about our day and the weather. Another person came and took our drinks order and read it back to ensure she had the correct order. Quickly the usual prawn crackers arrived on the table. Then the waitress whisked off to sit other customers. Listening in on... More

I am a visitor from out of the country and I was expecting more from an Asian restaurant. The quality of food I could normally find at my local Chinese buffet, so I thought this was terribly overpriced for the selection.

I dine in at this restaurant at least weekly, and frequently order takeaway meals from it too. On calling today and asking for a takeaway to be delivered, I was advised to call back as they would ask the driver if he would deliver to my address, under 3 miles away. I called back as requested and was told the... More

After reading some reviews we were a bit wary of dining here, we have eaten here in the past but since then the restaurant has been done up. We were not disappointed, the place was very busy as it was a Friday night. We had a nice table and the service was great, drinks orders taken quickly and food orders... More
