Ordered takeaway and the portion of their fried rice is pathetic for a large bowl. Food is quite oily and as an Asian whose main staple is rice and noodles, we felt their food is mediocre. Prices is on the high side as well. Regretted our choice for that night. Would not visit again.

Went to this Chinese restaurant with a group of 12 friends over the busy Christmas/new year period. We were very pleased that they would take our booking over this time because there was so many of us. Sadly, we were extremely disappointed by their service, food and overall atmosphere. The restaurant itself is quite dirty, cheap looking and unkept. The... More

Went in this chinese restaurant at 1:30pm. There were no other customers. As we sat down, we were told by staff that it closes at 2:00pm so we have hurry up. Any way food came very fast. Asked for some chilli sause and were told that it would cost us extra $2.00. Never experienced any other restaurant charging for chilli... More

This place had the Worst Chinese food I've had anywhere on the planet. It was late and the restaurant was a bit empty so I thought it would be OK, I was so wrong. Only gets one star simply because I can't give a zero. Walk past and try another restaurant.

It's probably one of the better sweet and sour pork I've eaten so far. The meat is soft and the outer layer is still crispy and soft even after it is coated with the sweet and sour sauce. The waitress is helpful and friendly. She makes an effort to remind us that we may have over order (we have 2... More

We ordered take-away so cannot comment on the restaurant itself or the service. However, the staff who did serve us were helpful and we did not have to wait very long for our meals. The meals themselves were a decent size, freshly cooked and very tasty and I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant as far as a take-away... More

A much needed visit to the local Chinese restaurant and let me promise you it was definitely worth the trip. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. This place makes you want more. I felt it was a necessity to order excess amounts of food for the days to come. Avoid all the other feedback. This place is... More

We visited at the quiet end of a busy event weekend so assumed the service would be better at all the restaurants in cowes.We noticed straight away that the restaurant desperately needed updating but figured the food was more important than the decor. When we ordered there was no attempt from the waitress to be friendly or show any interest... More

We arrived to an almost empty restaurant, placed our order, then over 70 Asian tourists arrived, filling the restaurant. Great food, fast service and good value too. Definitely would go back again.
