Good food

Good food and quick service for take away. Eating in is nice as it's quite a small restaurant and has a good atmosphere.

The food was okay, decor wasn't the best and the service was poor. Once they served your food that was it wouldn't see them Again and it wasn't busy.

£6.50 for 2 course lunch. Extensive menu but lots of supplements. Soup was good, as was the chicken and duck in the main courses, but the sauces they were cooked in were bland. Drink prices were reasonable and I enjoyed the Chinese lager which was a new one on me. A sour note was when the bill came. Everything correctly... More

There is not a lot of choice in Helensburgh when it comes to Chinese restaurants and so myself and a colleague visited the restaurant whilst on a business trip as we had a craving for Chinese food. Looking at the menu prices seemed reasonable and so we took the plunge. Being hungry and on a budget I was worried about... More

We'd booked a table for two. On turning up the place was busy with people collecting take always. Not one of the three staff acknowledged us. Eventually we were asked if we were collecting a carry out. After explaining we'd booked a table we were shown to the table and given two very tatty venues held together with tape. We... More

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.
