Great food and service!

My wife and I have visited this restaurant previously as part of a large party and the food/service was very good. Last night we attended as a family of four. The food was superb. The service is equally as good. Great value for money. We cannot wait to return!

One thing you can't rely on is getting a table, especially in the Emmett & Grockle season - unless you book well in advance! That must tell you something! Having often eaten Chinese food in China I really can't face going back - it's all here, the quality, the menu & Gary Kwok's excellent staff make it so much better... More

The staff were all attentive and polite. It was full of regular customers for both Take Away and seated, but we felt no difference in the... More
