Really good food, excellent service. Almost 5*.

We were driving home after a day out and felt hungry, and knew we'd not be home till quite late. We phoned at 1900 and booked a table for 1930 whilst we were some 20 miles away, anyway, we arrived with 5 mins to spare after parking about 100yds away. We were greeted and offered menus and drinks... read more

Staff nice and welcoming. A bit shabby and outdated inside. Food was average. Good sized portions. Chicken & sweetcorn soup was unseasoned. Sweet & sour lacked the right sweet n sour balance - very vinegary and lacked salt. The beef mushroom was unseasoned. Very disappointing to be honest.

Always used to go here for meals out, birthdays etc. I love the food but always get the same so can't comment on everything! Very good price and friendly staff. Food appears and is cleaned from table very quickly! Not really a sit and relax for a couple of hours type of place. Only downside is the decor! REALLY needs... More

An amazing Chinese Restaurant for the right reasons good food and good service
