Just enough...

On a quick trip to the lakes, and came for tea with my dad. The staff are very polite and friendly, and quick to help. Food portions are perfect, you leave feeling full, but not overly stuffed...thanks for the fortune cookies too, my favourite!

Food is pretty good and they've got a few nice beers on (Tsing Tao, Tiger, etc.). We went as a large group and they were pretty accommodating. The staff can be a bit abrupt, but it adds to the charm of the place and they're good for a bit of well-intentioned banter.

Very good Chinese food, but on the expensive side. I visited with my family and the only let down was the flat Coke and lack of ice. Hot and sour soup is amazing, as is the sweet and sour chicken

Had a great time on Saturday night at the Diamond. The Zen lounge was a great setting for a party, food was wonderful, the staff were superb as they catered to our every need. Lily and Jim made it a memorable night. What a fantastic venue for a private party.

Myself and bunch of work mate came here for a Christmas meal, the food was great, just the service was a bit slow, especially for the drinks, the night that we went the restaurant had a 'not getting served at the bar' policy so you would have to get served from your table, but you were waiting forever to be...

I cannot stress enough how bad the customer service was when I rang up the restaurant to order my food, the woman who answered the phone was rude and the fact that they insisted I pay the taxi fair to deliver my food which would have been £6 is absolutely outrageous. Do not order from here unless you want a... More

We attended our works Christmas do and were seated on three different tables. Not a good start. The place was packed and every time a waiter or waitress had to pass me they bashed into my chair...this is extremely annoying and they could do with losing a table or two. We'd pre ordered so the food arrived pretty quickly. In... More

Been here a lot over the years and after our last meal thought it about time I did the place justice with a review. Four of us for a set meal, each course simply divine and we shared four main courses all served by a very smart and on the ball waitress. She gave us good advice on our food... More
