“what a rip off- avoid!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Went here after finding that most other restaurants in Ambleside were fully booked on a Saturday night, now we know why. Menu small and confusing so we settled for dim sum for 2, what a mistake. The dim sum menu states £6.95 for one and £14.95 , we thought for 2, so decided on this, However after trying to plough through soggy, tasteless dumpling we were horrified to find that the price was actually £14.95 each and not per couple as we thought. How they can justify this is beyond me. We asked for clarification then reluctantly paid vowing NEVER to be caught out again
