Been back and it has improved. I do have to say though that chips, curled fries and deep fried empty one ton are a bit excessive. Yes we need some English bits to choose for those who can't do the Chinese food but want to socialise with friends and family. I also think hight has nothing to do with the... More

We attempted to eat here but staff were rude, it's cash only and you must pay before you eat or see what's on offer, I wouldn't bother trying again

I must say that the restaurant is very jaded, and shabby looking. Could do with a good clean. seems there has been flood damage as there water brown marks on the ceiling. It would be quite a good idea to have a umbrella with you in case the roof caves in with flood water. Really they haven't even bothered to... More

Since the old owner sold the mandarin to which we visited 2 times a week , this restaurant has gone downhill very fast and food is cold and staff are miserable. Never will go back and prefer the one in gravesend

Like others we thought the food in the past was a wee bit iffy and so had not been for a meal for a number of months. I must say that on this occasion however it was really very good, a couple of new editions to the menu too and we all agreed that we would go back. I have... More

We have been several times over the years. It's just about OK but I have had far better Chinese buffets. I would far rather go to Twins in Dartford now which is also eat all you want but is freshly cooked.

We live locally but have only recently visited - twice. Both times the food was good: piping hot when it should be, and replenished when it started to run out. Pleasant staff and not too busy to hear ourselves think. Wheelchair access no problem either - though 2 people needed to get through the 2 doors.

Thoroughly enjoy the food and ambience. The price is reasonable. I would recommend the evening menu, which is richer and more varied
