“Poor quality Chinese”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I was very disappointed with the quality of the meal. I ordered takeaway and could immediately tell it was not hot and had to throw it in the microwave when I got home. Was not all together tasty either. I'm going to try elsewhere next time.

“Awesome takeaways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

The shop isn't really one you'd go for a sit-down meal (although there are a few tables) but I don't think that's what they're going for at all. We order from there all the time and are never disappointed. We learned early though that the dishes have lots of rice/noodles anyway so don't order more.. But the flavours are awesome. We'll order again and again

“General Tao won the battle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012 via mobile

I have tried General Tao chicken and General Tao prawns and both were 'lick the plare' delicious. Better to have medium as the hot is HOT.

“not so yummy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

The shop is in a nice area and tastefully decorated. That’s what made me attracted me to it, along with the prices.
The food however was dismal. I ordered beef chow mein take away and the beef was too hard, the noodles overcooked and tasted powdery.

“Great Chinese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 via mobile

This is great Chinese food. The cashew nut chicken is the only thing I have found that is not that great. Every other thing on the menu is amazing and delicious. It is a take away, so no rating for atmosphere. Highly recommended take aways.
