I love this restaurant after coming back from China where I fell in love with the dim sum this is the most authentic place I have found. The food here is always delicious make sure you ask for the dim sum menu as well as your typical Chinese restaurant food at a great price.

What is there to be said after my title, this is the best Chinese Resturant we have ever visited anywhere in the world, and my wife and I travel a lot. Our favourites are the mixed starter "Autumn" and Then the Prawns in pineapple and ginger, not to forget the extra special Crispy lamb. As our friends say this place... More

I visited on a weekday evening so the restaurant was fairly quiet. The food was very enjoyable and the portions very generous. Would visit again.

He was responsible for processing the payment at the end. We did not book so we sat upstairs. The restaurant is nicely decorated and clean... More
