Great Selection, Great Price.

Normally we tend to get a take away from here, but on our last visit, decided to eat in. They were very busy, (always a good sign) but the service didn't suffer because of it:-) During our meal, all tables were used at least one time while we were dining. Obviously another good sign.

If i could leave a 'No star rating' I would.Expensive xmas eve take away for a group of 6. We opted for one of the set meals and everything that came was revolting. The ribs were like eating strips of wood, the satay chicken had the strangest texture, like sponges, the prawn crackers were thick and rubbery and the soup... More

After much thought we decided to have a very different New Year's Eve, we went to either get a take away or if possible eat in there were 6 of us. A very polite helpful lady said that we could eat in if we were prepared for a little wait. The wait wasn't long at all and the food choice,... More

Big portion sizes, but unfortunately the food itself isn't that nice. Enjoyed the Shredded duck, but the chicken satay was very overcooked and the noodles were too.

Took the family this week for a birthday meal. Restaurant full including two large birthdays but service excellent and food great. Julie and her team do a great job and really well priced - Three course meal, drinks, extras, only £85 for five people.

I've just enjoyed a wonderful meal (starter, main, rice, drink) for under £14. The restaurant was very busy and the service was prompt and courteous. Three of the tables were occupied by Chinese speaking customers... surely the best sign of a good Chinese restaurant.
