“Above average for Forfar not the best Chinese in the world but not bad either”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Reasonable place the only thing to compare that's fairly local is Peking palace in Montrose which is slightly better
jasmine house in arbroath is fairly similar nothing outstanding but there isn't much choice in the area without going to Aberdeen or Dundee so all in all worth a try but don't expect too much
