Have eaten here and I have never been disappointed, but the take away meal we just shared as a family was awful. It was as if some other restaurant had cooked the meal. The crispy duck was dry and tasteless. The main courses were dry, soggy and almost I edible. Last meal there!

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

Ordered a take away blind, then realised we'd been there years ago to eat in and it was totally over priced. So no surprise we got an ok meal, but very expensive . 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.
