Dislike that it's so small inside, so you are better to book a table. Like, the food is amazing, so so tasty.

At the end of a long and tiring day out to the far North and with a half hour drive back to my hotel and not really caring much for the food there, I really fancied a Chinese take-away. Boy, did I strike lucky! Good portions, well cooked and pretty good value for money, too. Would definitely visit again.

Wonderful restaurant offering a wide range of meal choices as well as wonderfully-priced lunchtime offers. The staff cannot be any more helpful or pleasant. The only down-side is it's size (rather compact) so best to book ahead in the evening.

We all ordered something different and our food arrived very quickly. We all loved our dishes. Not one complaint about the taste or quality of the food. There is a very... More

Our meals were served promptly , piping hot and delicious. However we ordered the mussels in black bean sauce to share as a starter and forgot to ask if they were locally sourced... More

We went on a Saturday night. We hadn't booked but we were seated straight away even though the restaurant was busy. The service was a little rushed but expect that was due to how busy they were. Our meal was great, would recommend the salt and pepper chicken pieces as a starter. Over all lovely meal, very tasty food and... More
