Without a doubt the best Chinese restaurant in Colchester, it is a little expensive, but you get what you pay for, the quality of the food is incredible.

We spent a Friday evening at thus popular restaurant. Having been here about 6 times before we were disappointed with a significant reduction in the service levels. We did not recognise any of the staff members so guess some changes have been made. The food is normally top drawer but not quite there this time. We will go back but... More

We took my Mum here for her 50th over the Easter Weekend. We ordered one of the set menus and were delighted with the food especailly the duck! It's a lovely setting and great for celebrations. It's a wee bit pricey but you get alot and it's very tasty!

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and have always been very satisfied. The first time I went there with my Thai friends, we all love it. The second time I took my Spanish friend with me. She never had Dim Sum before and she loved it. This time I went with my fiance. He also didn't know what... More

Not cheap but authentic food in a pleasant restaurant. The service can be a little abrupt sometimes but that I suspect is just a cultural thing. Some of the best Chinese food you will find in the UK full stop. Evening slightly spoilt by the common and very loud woman on the next table but that's life sometimes.
