First of all let me make it clear that the quality of the food was exceptionally good for a Chinese restaurant and I would definitely recommend it. However, I might be inclined to suggest one order the takeaway rather than dine in food because I wasn't massively impressed with the whole ambience of the place. We visited this restaurant on...

The menu is vast. There are well balanced set meals, special offers during the week and a large menu to choose from. The starters were really nice, fresh and tasty and lots of them. The mains too were great. The servers were really good. Efficient and friendly. Will def. Visit again.

I booked our order at lunch time for a 18.30 collection, on a Friday, by a Taxi Driver, it was as ordered, on time, and arrived still hot 4 miles away. I can recommend it if you really don't want to drive out again after work! Thank you Golden Cross, still excellent as when we used to come and eat... More

I went here for the first time for a takeaway a few weeks ago and ordered: x1 egg friend rice x1 curry sauce The tiniest little pot of curry sauce came out with a big container of rice. It wasn't cheap either - I don't mind paying the price but you need to give the goods! So basically I had... More

Visited just before Christmas with my wife. Had a problem getting to the table with the wheelchair. The tables were to close together and there was a pillor in the way. So we were put out near the front where all the people came to collect the take-aways, bit like a waiting room. The service was ok at the beginning... More

We had booked a table here for us and some friends, my wife decided to check on tripadvisor to see how it faired, to be honest we had been on many other occasions and had always had great food etc.. anyway we were a bit shocked to see some recent comments saying how it had gone downhill. So to sum... More

Visited for husbands birthday one Thursday evening, was a bit worried after hearing it had been taken over by a member of the staff but the food was good as ever and the service was as excellent as it has always been. We wouldn't have known it had changed hands if I hadn't been told prior to our visit. Yes... More

We were a party of 4. We were taken to our table immediately and chose the set meal at 24.00 pp. Service was excellent, friendly social staff. Food was of a high standard, hot and tasty. It was nice not to be rushed. It was nice not to have piped music. We enjoyed a leisurely meal in pleasant surroundings. Yes,... More
