“Wonderful find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We arrived at six thirty on Saturday night to see they were already fully booked (good job we had booked in advance!) which was a good sign, very friendly maitre de met us and gave us a table and when we explained we had to get to the theatre in an hour she went out of her way to help us get fed and out quickly. Same we had to be so quick however as the food was divine, both my partner and I are now discussing traveling an hour one night to go back and have longer there. Highly recommended.

“Bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Just faty and bad quality and poor combination. Maybe it is just what we ended choosing among the 500 dishes list but it was terrible. Now i feel sick and fat, even though i had only one dish. Staff was friendly enough.

“Best Chinese Food Outside China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I have now been to this amazing Chinese eatery twice, it's over 400 miles from home so not just round the corner, and have to say it is magnificent. Having been to China and experienced the real deal so to speak, this is the most authentic Chinese I have eaten since there. Yes you can have the usual British taste Chinese like sweet and sour etc, but hey be brave and go for something totally different and out with your comfort zone, you will not be disappointed I promise

“Birthday Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Decided to go here for my birthday dinner. It was amazing.. especially the salt and pepper squid..I am surprised how i missed this place last 3 years in Oxford... Will definitely go again... seating was a bit crowded.. staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our meal thoroughly.. the dishes are marked according to spice level..even though i eat very spicy food the 2 chilli rating was extremely spicy for me.. so will go for the less spice version on my next visit.. huge menu is another plus! :)

“Home cooking with zing and style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Funky decor, a big place that's regularly full, efficient and knowledgeable staff, and excellent 'home cooking' -- not the usual Chinese takeaway stuff, but real food for real families! Yum -- genuine levels of spice (if you want them), speedy service, and a sophisticated presentation. Having spent about half my adult life in Asia, this was really welcome!
