An ok take away. Nothing to shout about. The prawn schezuan was tasty enough but lacking in ingredients. Can't seem to get a decent Chinese take away in Loughborough. Won't be going back to this restaurant I'm afraid.

I have eaten at this small Chinese restaurant many times. Clean crisp cloths and napkins. Clean fresh toilet facilities. The food is freshly cooked and tasty. The wine list is varied. Haven't really had bar drinks so do not know the selection. Both food and wine are priced perhaps a little higher but you do get the value and service.... More

I came here with a group of 5. I had a lovely spicy meal. The service was prompt. Though it was a little bit pricey it was worth it!

Loughborough is well-blessed with good Oriental restaurants, offering very good food and dining experience at good prices, so I was expecting something special from this one as their menu is slightly higher priced than some of their competitors. The restaurant is nicely presented, clean and the tables well spaced. It doesn't feel cramped or crowded. Drinks selection is limited. There... More

I don't normally like chinese food. However, this restaurant has completely changed my mind. The food is great, the service is exceptional and the ambience is great. The food is excellent value for money, especially the early bird menu!

Had a meal here last weekend, I was on a business trip with a group of colleagues and we had pre-arranged to eat here as one of the others had eaten here before and recommended it. Table was ready for us when we arrived, and staff very attentive (not pushy). Retaurant was very clean and bright and with the large... More
