“Enjoyable meal at Chinatown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We went along the other Saturday night, we hadn't booked a table and despite the group growing from about 8 people to 13, the restaurant were happy to provide a large table for us. We had two Chinese friends with us, who basically ordered for all of us, taking into account personal preferences. I've never seen so much food brought to a table - starter of mixed soup, lobster and noodles, duck pancakes. Then for mains seabass, pork, salt and chilli squid, prawns, szechuan chicken, all served with plenty of rice and cups and cups of jasmine tea. I loved the glass feature in the middle of the table, which meant you could spin and get a bit of something else to try! It wasn't a cheap meal (drinks included) but thoroughly enjoyable. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was great and we had a great night! Have been before and will look forward to going back soon, the menu is brilliant, as were the staff.

“Good for big party, duck and dumplings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Went with ten people for a xmas gathering. They coped with our big table fine. The best starters were the whole roast duck pancakes, and the dim sum, with pork in it.

There was plenty in the mains too. Some of them looked strange, but they were often the best. Sizzler was exciting, but the fish wasn't as good as the pork and duck.

House beer fine too, came to about £20 each.

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A family gathering. Had not been for over a year and it had been freshly and tastefully decorated. Staff were helpful and most importantly food was delicious. We had three roast and boiled rice dish, house special chow mein, a range of savoury and sweet steamed dumplings called dim sums. All in all a great lunch, would definitely recommend.

“A REAL PLEASURE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This is a real stunning example of a proper Chinese restaurant. Set in a quiet but central location it has an excellent menu and wine list.Well decorated and staffed by friendly knowledgeable staff and management. The food is all freshly prepared with the dim sum to be highly recommended. We went with a friend who goes there a lot. It is easy to see why. We will definitely go back the next time we visit Glasgow
