We have also had a few Take away meals from here and whilst the wait is slightly longer than other places it is well worth it as the food... More

Food was average, the sweet spicy chicken was good. However, the service was TERRIBLE. We ordered some noodles and they were completely burnt, not edible. When the issue was raised to the waiter she tried to convince us that they were how they were supposed to be, apparently they were "crispy" and not burnt. After that, she called the owner... More

Placed a very large order last night, it arrived in carrier bags stone cold! We ordered three crispy dishes all the batter was like wet soggy cardboard, luxury springrolls that had adsorbed that much water they fell to peaces trying to remove them from the paper bag. The chips were uncooked/not edible! The tip of the iceberg came when the... More

This is an excellent Chinese, definitely one of the best I have eaten in. The salty chilli rib starters are amazing. I am surprised at the negative comments here I have never had a bad meal in years

Waited over an hour for very mediocre food, extremely diasppointed and deeply upset at the service. Waitress was horrible and food was overcooked and cold.

The last few times we have ordered the time estimate has been 45 minutes out ie a lengthy wait. The staff are unbelievably rude both on the phone and when you go in to collect. One woman made it abundantly clear her priority was to customers in the restaurant not take away in which case - don't offer a take... More
