Tried here as 3 courses for 7.50 is great value for lunch. The starters and mains came out within 25mins which was very fast but then the desserts took 25mins to come out. Shocking service not even a sorry either. The food was okay but nothing special. Having tried other local Chinese's there are better value for money / service... More

Visited as a family of four, included two faults and two teenagers, unfortunately the food was only okay and the service was AWFUL!!!!! Out of the seven members of staff we saw only one of them managed crack a smile, and that was forced!!!! Not impressed at all, I normally leave good tips however on this occasion left nothing!!!!

Eaten here for years and gradually the food and the portion size have been getting poorer & poorer. The service is also very poor and I will never be back. Lychees is a far better option than this restaurant and it has it's faults too but this place is simply just rubbish now. On my last visit I couldn't even... More

This restaurant offers decent food and a choice of excellent wine but the service is extraordinarily poor. It was a busy night but that is no excuse for the lack of service.Our starter was delivered to other customers in error resulting in a delay of three quarters of an hour to replace it. We were on the point of leaving... More

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
