The restaurant advertises outside a two course lunch meal for £10.50 per person so my sister and I went in. We've been before so we did not envisage any problems. We ordered our meal and ordered two drinks. When the drinks arrived we were presented with....... not a full can but the smallest size can of mixer for the drinks... More

First time visiting this restaurant and was thoroughly impressed. Food was excellent along with the presentation and the staff couldn't be more attentive. There aren't that many tables available which creates a crackling atmosphere at the weekends. A real gem!

Food was really good. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would certainly go back. I felt it was just a touch expensive from the main menu which I order from. My wife ordered from the pre theater which seemed alot better value.

It is a quite average Chinese that has a bit of dim sum; the best one is the shui mai but if you are looking to eat dim sum I wouldn´t recommend it as it doesn´t have huge range.

Booked a table last minute on Saturday night and they shuffled a few things around to squeeze 4 of us in. Food was amazing, so much that we ordered 2 rounds of dim sum, probably enough to serve 10 people! Staff were great, cocktails were tasty and I will definitely be back next time in Glasgow.

One of the best Asian restaurants I've ever been to. Service was faultless and the food exquisite. Try the Thai chilli beef, you won't be disappointed.

We always visit this restaurant when we're in Glasgow. The food is outstanding and they do a wide variety of delicious dishes. The staff are polite and friendly. They do a lovely parma violet cocktail that i can't help myself from having more than one of. Definitely give this place a try if you're looking for good quality Chinese food.

I booked this restaurant for my birthday after a recommendation by a friend who recently dined there and we were not disappointed. The range of the menu was good and we opted to have 4 starters followed by one main course and noodles, between to two of us: salt & pepper squid, crispy duck roll, satay won ton & the... More
