been here twice mow since Xmas. Both times the food was fantastic and the service really good. I love the idea of a buffet but with waiter/waitress service. Food was delicious and plenty of it. They were very accommodating by taking in a surprise birthday cake for my husband and supplying candles too. Looking forward to our next visit.

Table was booked for 10 people for 19.30 Monday evening we arrived on time and was seated straight away and asked what drinks we would like and these were duly delivered. Shortly after this the starters came up and all the food was piping hot. What we liked was that the waiters were very attentive to our needs but didn't... More

I usually use this place for lunchtime takeaways and the food has many great flavours. Many of the eat-in diners are from a nearby private school and are oriental...can you get a better recommendation?

Table for 11 booked for 18:15, and had to pay a deposit of £10 per head. Starters were very good, and the duck pancake rolls were out of this world. Staff paid attention to out table with some very prompt service. But alas the evening was ruined. The mains were ordered and only one served, followed by a ten minute... More

We ordered off ‘the as much as you like menu’ so we had loads of different dishes to try and although each dish wasn’t massive they were exactly... More

We came for a Xmas meal approx 17 of us, was a bit cramped for space but the food tells you why! ! Simply mouth watering. One of the best restaurant Chinese meals I've had. A few minor things, like only half the table had xmas crackers, we were offered vegetarian duck! (Yes you read that right) And too many... More
