“Good food and service. Extensive menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Pleasantly surprised. Doesn't look much from the outside but nice decor and attentive service. Food very good and not bad value. We'll be back.

“Some Takeaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

For those who think that all Chinese takeaways are basically the same they need to come and visit this place. We telephoned our order in, based on their online menu and were told that it would all be ready in 20 minutes. By the time we drove in from Berinsfield we had a 3 minutes wait and everything was ready. There were four of us to feed and we all had something different from the menu. All of us agreed that the food represented good value. The only fault that was remarked on was that some of the food was rather over salted, but apart from that the range of what was available was very pleasing. The service was seamless and the staff we dealt with were polite and professional. Next time we are in a mood for Chinese food I suspect we will give this place another visit.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We visited last night and had the set menu for 2,the food was excellent as was the service,the owner took time to come to our table to check that everything was ok and had a pleasant chat,we have also visited on New Years Eve and the Elton John tribute in January,on each visit the food has always been to the highest standard and presentation,the staff are tentative and polite,I have heard some people moan that it is pricy well at £21.50 per head you get excellent value for money and get to dine in lovely surroundings,we will definately be visiting again

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Popped in on my way home from work because I couldn't be bothered to cook. The food was good and tasty. Attentive service. The menu is quite extensive, so choosing takes time! Reasonably priced and I will be back!

“Not sure if I will return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

The food was ok but nothing you would not get from any decent Chinese restaurant, over priced. Nice decoration nice presentation of the food. We had quite a few dishes the best where the prawn toast and the ox tail was very good. Had a desert that was nice but for £7 would not expect it to be finished off with synthetic cream.
