We had a lovely meal here. Although it is quite expensive the banquets are very good. Everything was very tasty and served efficiently

Went here tonight and couldn't pick fault from the customer service to the very tasty food, every member of staff was polite and willing to help from the moment we stepped in, food arrived on time with the option of waiting between courses or to be brought out immediately. Customer service is impeccable, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!... More

Definitely the best Chinese Restaurant I've been to. And even though I have to fly in from Belgium, it's well worth going again. I like the friendly welcome, the nice ambiente and the staff bends over backwards to make you feel at home. Having troubles choosing from the elaborate menu, my friends and I usually ask John to surprise us... More

This fixed priced 3 course lunch cannot be beaten for value. The food is delicious and the price very affordable. However, whether you are here for a cheap lunch or a banquet the service by the friendly and attentive staff is always 5*
