“Delicious Chinese Food- The best in Moray”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

we visit regularly and sit in. We get the a la carte menu as we prefer this option, but buffet is available. The food is delicious. The only down points are that it is usually cold in the restaurant and there is no atmosphere usually. Lovely fresh authentic chinese food.

“Wrap up well!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

A group of us (15 ish) went here for our Christmas lunch last year. We were seated up the stairs so it was just our party, which was ok. There was no real Christmas party atmosphere in the place, The place was very cold, ok there was the big freeze on at the time but when we felt the radiators they were just on and no more, so we turned them full up.

The service was very slow, we had a couple of people that was going to work on a late shift and we had booked the meal early enough that they would have plenty of time to eat and go to work. As it was we had to ask the waiter to hurry the meal up as time was running out for them.
The meal was taken out in small dishes and some put at either end of the table, not even the same dishes, so one end had a few diffrent things from the other so if you wanted to have a try of say sweet and sour and it was it the other end of table you might have been lucky to taste it as very small amount in dishes.

I have been to better Chinese restuarants at Christmas time and would not return to this one.

“Order from the menu buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

Forget mass produced stodge drying out on the hot plate. Here you order from the menu, choosing what you like and as much of it as you please. The starter selection is fantastic and then there's the crispy duck and if you're lucky you may just squeeze in a main course! Excellent value, friendly staff, highly recommended.
