Went there and ordered for takeaway, waited over an hour for the food. It was very busy so was expecting the food to be worth the wait. The food was very bland, and over priced for what it was. Even the curry sauce had no flavour, very disappointed.

Very quick service despite being busy and food was enjoyed by all except the chicken curry which was bland and the chicken was tasteless. Also no mints or chocolates with the bill - a small thing I know but the little things are what makes a good impression!

First class well presented and tasted good if you like Chinese food you'll love it. Although we did not book ( Tuesday evening ) they found us a table and within 20 mins the place was full. Very popular with locals too.

Food here is unbelievable, whether your eating individual dishes or set meals its defiantly value for money.. The starting plattters are enough to set you up for the meal ahead, make sure there Is enough people with you or your be needing a doggy bag for the leftovers :D

Busy place. Very good service team, who were friendly and efficient. Found the food good without being excellent. Squid was far too salty. Ribs too fatty. Good crispy duck and Sea Bass.
