Well first visit to this place, and it was so lovely I thought I would take a little time in writing a review. Such a warm friendly atmosphere, the manager went out of his way to meet and greet us, and some magic tricks along the way, made our visit that little more special. Food was perfect, all in all...

After reading the reviews I was really looking forward to a tasty meal but I was very disappointed. My starter was BBQ spare ribs, the meat was very dry, tough and without flavour, a warm source was poured over them rather than the ribs being cooked in the sauce. My main was Cha Siu Pork with egg fried rice, the... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and have always thoroughly enjoyed the food and the friendly service. There is a varied menu and the food is always beautifully presented. We have taken friends and family there and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. There is also an excellent take away service.

Me, my husband and our 3 teenage children were all very pleased that we found this lovely little restaurant. The staff were very nice, the food was presented to a high standard and tasted great. We had an enjoyable evening, and was pleasantly entertained with some magic tricks from the Manager . Would definitely recommend, can't wait to go back.

I went here recently with the family for Dad's 60th birthday. I had never been here before (in fact, i don't think any of us had), but I loved it. The whole experience was excellent. The food was exceptional. Every single dish we had tasted so good. It was all hot, flavoursome, and cooked so well. We never had to... More

This is the first time I've seen VAT added at the end of a bill, ie after an automatic service charge. Hyper-inflated prices for average food, which is saying something when you consider the 'cookie cutter' nature of popular Chinese menus.

Dear Darren F, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I can confirm that we do not add VAT at the end of the bill. We merely state at the end of the bill that our prices are inclusive of VAT and service charge is discretional. Some dining establishments do not publicly state about the inclusion of... More
