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...

Very friendly service. Food is excellant; very fresh and without the usual MSG one often finds in chinese restaurants. The duck pancakes are great and the bami goreng rice nice and spicy without going over the top.

First ever visit to this restaurant in Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire U.K. Greeted by the very friendly lady owner who made us very welcome indeed. I have eaten quite a lot of chinese food over the years but would have to honestly say the spare ribs in sauce were the best I have ever tasted and devoured before anyone... More

Went for takeaway this evening, place was surprisingly quiet so food ready pretty quickly. We had the lemon chicken, which was very good, lovely coating with plenty of lemon sauce provided separately in a pot. Chilli beef was tasty if a little spicier than expected; thin strips of carrot gave it an interesting twist. Sweet & sour hong kong style... More
