A warm welcome, considerate attentive service, large portions of good quality food.

A pleasant experience which I would readily repeat. Every component was better than expected . We ate early and the restaurant was quiet and lacking atmosphere. It was busier by the time we left.Good vfm.

This has always been a good reasonably priced Chinese restaurant. Considering the quality of the food and the fact that the Indian restaurant on the same parade is always crowded it is surprising that the restaurant is usually empty. We have never had a bad meal there over a period of about 15 years, however due to the low No... More

Ordered a takeaway over the 'phone from here last weekend, as the alternatives were not open for lunches. Whilst I have been here before, it has been a while. Food, change and a smile were waiting for me on arrival and, once home, we each had our fill from the choices set before us: Chilli Beef, Chicken and Cashews, Chow... More

This is an excellent Chinese restaurant with a large menu which includes Cantonese, Japanese and Thai. The food has always been excellent, and I enjoy trying different dishes, of which there are so many to choose from. We also enjoy take-aways from the Great Wall, which always includes the amazong spare ribs.

Only ever used this restaurant for takeaways so can't comment on service. Food is ok, edible but wouldn't rave about it. Portions however are very good and not badly priced.

The food here is far tastier than other Chinese fare available in the area and over the years we have sampled them all!! They will happily prepare without MSG and use far less salt in the cooking process too! As a lover of crispy chilli beef I can heartily recommend theirs as being the best I've had in a long... More

This chinese/thai/japanese restaurant is really something special. The chef is committed to healthy cooking - really fresh ingredients with minimal salt, fat and msg. The result is the best chinese food I've had anywhere. Although not the most attractive of restaurants, the large tables with ample space between more than makes up for it. Best of all, however, is the... More

Brilliant food. Courteous and attentive staff. Always worth a visit. Sometimes seems a little quiet but not a bad thing. Wide range of food - chinese, japanese and thai. All good.

I like the food from here - usually have takeaway. I recently asked for something that was not on the menu and the chef would not cook it - reason being that it was not palatable to him and not worthy of his talents (I just wanted something cooked very plainly for someone with dietary requirements - just part of...
