Been here several times and food always good. The staff are friendly and helpful. Love the set menu's, but they are happy to change food if there is something you don't like. Well worth a visit.

The tofu at this place was the best tofu I've had, and I've eaten quite a lot of the stuff! The rest of he meal was good too, everything was properly made and tasty. Staff were friendly and courteous without being too much. All in all a great quality Chinese.

Just delicious...only wish it was closer to my home and not a thousand miles away. Staff remembered us and were most attentive. Note: all seating except takeaway is upstairs.
