Good experience

We were taken here by my niece and nephew. 6 in the party. My parents in their 80's had there first experience of Chinese food. They loved it. The food was fresh tasty and I don't think there was any MG. the staff was very helpful and attentive.

Love coming to this place as it gives the best dining Chinese experience in Essex but viewing the restaurant and hearing senior members of the staff giving bad attitude towards younger members of staff is appauling especailly the tall lady with blackish curly hair. I hope this changes on my next visit to the restaurant other than that 100% on... More

Came here for our Valentines meal. Excellent choice on the menu, excellent service by the staff. Drinks a little overpriced however, this could do with a review. Overall excellent restaurant, would highly recommended it.

Recommended to us and we visited on the spur of the moment; so glad we did. Wow.....Super friendly and professional staff, beautifully decorated and superb tasting food. Great Dim Sum menu (try the Chickens' Feet) and plenty of other menu choices. The closest to real Chinese food we have found outside China or Chinatowns (London, Sydney, New York) You have... More

We have never eaten here before. I just googled restaurants near Marks Tey Hotel as that is where we were staying, so you could say it was a bit of a gamble. About a twenty minute walk from the hotel, all pavements. We were not disappointed. Excellent food, service and surroundings. We chose from the set menu for two, I... More

Celebrated the end of another academic year with a lovely Chinese meal. We went for one of their set menus, and weren't disappointed. Very lively atmosphere, really nice food, and lovely people. The only down side was that the service was a little too speedy. On one occasion, we were still chewing when the plates were whipped away....so they could... More

Location - out of town. Parking - plenty. Decor - good. Food - very good. Staff - better than some popular chines restaurants. But still appear to be rushing you out the restaurant.
