My mother and father were visiting my partner and I and we decided to choose this restaurant based on its many positive reviews on here. The outside was okay, but the inside was lovely. It was decorated with polished wooden chairs and had dragons hanging from the ceiling for chinese new year. The most aesthetically pleasing thing was that it was spotlessly clean. We were served and seated straight away by a member of staff who could not have been more polite if she tried. We ordered our food and it appeared very quickly, and it appeared in less than 15 mins. The portions were huge and it was all steaming hot, helped by the hot plates it was all placed on in the middle of the table. The food was presented very well, it had flowers and shapes/animals cut out of the fruit and veg which was a nice touch. Half way through our meal we were served an additional seabass meal, compliments of the chef, which my whole family thought was an exellent extra touch. The meal worked out at around £20 a head, however this included two bottles of wine, many other drinks and 7 dishes (much of which we were allowed to take home). This is without doubt the best authentically chinese restaurant we have all ever visited and I cannot wait to go again! Thank you so much to the wonderful staff and chefs they have working there for making our meal so lovely.
