We ate here last night for the first time with friends. We were impressed with the quality of the food . The menu was extensive but we chose a meal for 4 at £24 a head. We had 4 courses, mixed starters, crispy duck then four main dishes with rice and vegetables finished off with some fresh fruit... read more

Nice food, nice choice of drinks however service a little slow, but that may have been due to timing of the meals required ?? I would go again !

It is totally worth the drive out to this restaurant. We have eaten here for years and it is consistently amazing food. The set menu is the most economic way of having a good taste of everything. The tea smoked chicken and chi yum king prawns are things that dreams are made of.

It had been a long day out and we passed by on our way home so went in on the off chance, having never been passed here before. Getting a table for two took a few minutes while the manager worked out if he could fit us in. The reason why soon became obvious as the restaurant started to fill... More

Just been for a mother's day meal to the Golden Cross. The food was excellent - the best Chinese that I have had in a long time. The service was excellent even though the restaurant was full. I couldn't have asked for a better mother's day meal.

We visited as a family for my sons birthday on Saturday evening. The staff always polite. The restaurant was busy as expected. Service was slow and our starter came out in 2 parts, having to ask for the rest of the starter which clearly had been forgotten. The food was tasty as usual but we felt the evening was spoilt...
