Excellent food! Went twice on my holidays and loved it each night! Staff are superb! The portions are HUGE! So one side dish (chips/rice) between 2/3 is LOADS! Also one main dish between two is plenty! We never finished our food completely as there was so much of it! :) Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area!

Second time visit to the slow boat while we were on holiday. The food is cooked to perfection and presented very well, the staff are very friendly. The cost of the food is about the same that you would pay in the uk

I don't say that lightly. We're avid chinese eaters and have had all variations across the chinese spectrum, but this definitely gets the top rating for any we've been to on hols. Great staff, great food and reasonably priced - can't ask for more than that!
