Stopped here after a long day out on the train. We were very hungry and could not wait until we got back to the hotel. Service was very fast and efficient. Food was okay. I found the pork dish chewy and the beansprouts soggy with a sauce over them rather than fresh and crunchy. Other dishes were nice enough.

Steady local take away trade which is always a good sign Our meal wasn't the best Chinese we've eaten but then again it wasn't the... More

Great takeaways, excellent food, never disappointed. Only missing one star as the restaurant could be bigger and a pain of a delivery charge.
