The staff in this restaurant were downright rude, abrupt and very unpleasant and the food was just okay - we would not return.

We dine in here about 5 or 6 times a year. Usually a big party of us. The last few times I've noticed the owners and staff are thoroughly miserable and completely inhospitable. They act as if they customer is the enemy. I went in on Saturday lunchtime. It was busy but they got us a table for 2 no... More

2 of my friends and I decided to go here as it was new to me! We arrived and had to wait a short while so they could prepare our table. We were seated quite promptly but right behind a pillar with hardly any room to get into my chair!! The waiting staff barely smiled, and the service was appalling!... More

Went for Sunday lunch today, advertised at £7.50 for 3 courses. Menu isn't too bad, but many items have surcharges of at least £1 so your good value soon becomes less so. Wouldn't normally expect to pay a surcharge for spring rolls, ribs or chicken curry which are normally staples in a Chinese restaurant. We were walked to a table... More

Advertises a set price for one or two courses. When looking at the menu they advertise the choice of starters and mains. On both starters and mains an extra pound is added on for example a chicken breast to be used in the meal, although the meal is advertised as a chicken meal. If you do not pay the pound... More

Went in for a bit of lunch on the 3 courses for £7.50. Food was very good and great value. Service was fast and prompt. Can agree that it could be a bit more friendly but it was not that bad. Would definitely go back.
