“Cheap & Cheerful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is located approximately 5 minutes from the Best Western Hotel on the same side (right hand side of the road). You can either eat in the restaurant or order take away. The food itself is good and very cheap when compared with other restaurants in the area and the staff very friendly. I initially visited the Chinese restaurant opposite the station and directly in front of the Best Western Hotel but they were very rude and aggressive so found this one down the road and was very happy with the food and service that I ordered take away there twice!

“Walked Out Before Food Arrived”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We went to this restaurant after reading the the reviews here. It sounded like it would be a good experience. When we arrived they immediately gave us the "tourist" menu, which only offered a handful of the dishes on their full Chinese menu. Luckily one of our travellers spoke Chinese and we were able to order. After waiting 20min we were served our first dish. But we wanted to wait for the rest of our dishes before we started eating especially since our rice didn't arrive. Then we proceeded to wait another 45min while the customers around us all got served even those who ordered after us. Finally we just ended up leaving without eating or paying because we were so frustrated.

“Bland food, but plenty of it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Run a bit like a canteen, but with efficient and courteous staff, the food we had here was quite bland. We had several Chinese dishes and all were the same, lacking any real taste. As someone who cooks oriental food quite often, this place was a disappointment. For two people the bill was Euro31 and we were both stuffed, but that's not what food should be about!

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We came across this little gem by chance. We were not sure that it was open, however after stepping inside we found the restaurant quite busy. The staff were very polite and accommodating. The food was great and very tasty. It was a lovely meal and would eat there again.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Great Asian food, very reasonably priced. Ate here 3 nights in a row. Only downside is that the staff favour serving larger Asian parties and everyone else waits a bit. Usually not to bad but it can be very annoying if you are hungry.
