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

My prawns and the accompanying vegetables, including mange tout and garlic, were cooked perfectly, the prawns being succulent and delicious. Although I cannot fault the cooking, the sauce was unpleasantly 'gloopy'. Frankly, I would find it difficult to distinguish this meal from a hundred others that I have eaten in Chinese restaurants over the years. Some were worse, a few... More

Gone downhill badly, couldn't sleep for MSG poisoning, heart pounding all night. Very expensive and not worth it. Used to be good but must have changed hands to be this awful

Hi, Visited on 7th August and had the set meal for two people, i couldnt fault it, plenty of good quality food and a good variety of starters. The service was excellent and friendly. If you like good quality authentic food, this is the place. You will pay a service charge here, it is more pricey than your average Chinese,... More

This is my favourite Chinese restaurant the quality of meat and fish is fantastic!! The prawns are large and squid is so fresh. I would recommend the tea smoked chicken and the chilli prawns! Delicious
