I have visited this resaurant on a number of occasions when visiting family. The atmosphere is usually good. The place is clean and tidy and the service excellent. The food likewise is really good and unlike many similar restaurants is not laced with MSG. Price is competitive to the area with the lunch menu being very reasonable. I will continue... More

Have been coming here for years and it always lives up to it's good reputation. The food is consistently of a very high standard. The special lunch menu is great value and has plenty of variety of dishes. The evening menu offers A la Carte as well as several special banquet menus which are all delightful. The staff are always... More

I love it here. It never fails to disappoint. This time we opted for The Royal Banquet. The kids love the prawn crackers and chicken and sweetcorn soup and the duck and pancakes. The sizzling beef in cantonese sauce is so tasty. But my most favourite thing to have here is the salt and pepper king prawns. I hate sharing... More

We love this local restaurant- much to do with the consistency and service, however, on Friday night, the manager John was not present and boy it showed!! Food same usual quality, speed of service spot on - BUT- the staff were surly, disinterested and cold, which affected our enjoyment. Usually we are warmly welcomed during our patronage, which was significantly... More
