I have made an account purposely to write a review on this restaurant. Me and my friends are all 16 and we went out for one of my friends birthday. The first thing they said when we walked in was 'You do know it's £10 minimum?' Immediately, we looked at each other and realized that they thought we were poor.... More

This review really comes from the heart, as I was born in Hong Kong, have always loved Chinese food, and have eaten it all over the world. I cannot understand the negativity of some of the reviews for this restaurant. The food is EXCELLENT and cooked by the owner. His wife is in charge of the restaurant, and family members... More

We asked for 3 spring rolls and one veggie , can't even explain what we ended up with !. I should have been warned a/ when placed... More

The food was very good. However the waitress would not smile. They give you half of your drink and not all of it but you still pay for a whole drink. It's really expensive . You have to pay for service when there is none.

Long standing visitors to the restaurant we go a few times every year. The quality of the food never changes it always excellent, and the fixed menus offer the best value. As ever it was a busy Friday night and there were gaps between the courses but it was of little concern. Super duck, followed by a great sizzling prawns... More

Having not been for years we came here for our alternative office Christmas Dinner. The food was excellent and the staff were cheerful and attentive. We did have a bit of a wait between the duck and the main course but to be honest it gave us a chance to digest. Compared to the other chinese restaurants in town this... More

Previously been and really enjoyed our meal but tonight the service was very slow and the waitress was very rude. Asked for water and it didn't come. Long periods between courses.. Not a nice experience would definitely not recommend. Sorry canton chef but certainly gone down hill and need to address your customer service!!!
