“First Class Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

This is a fantastic place to eat, the atmosphere is always good and the food is always excellent.
Family run, it is fronted by Alex and Eddie who always make you feel at home and as one of the family, whether its a cosy meal for two, a family celebration or and get together with friends you are assured of agood night.
"Beware of getting into a session of "Crack Babies" with Alex

“Classy, handy spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Top notch decor, very welcoming and professional, better quality than the norm, handy location for town and with parking. Pricier than some but worth the extra, very spacious and smart place, highly recommended.

“Shots through the heart(and your to blame)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

(Apologies to john Bon Jovi.) If you have never eaten in China red start packing now, wherever you are! The food is excellent, fresh and tasty in a way that so many Chinese restaurants can't seem to achieve. There is a great wine list and drink options from something for those on a budget to Crystal and Ace of spades for the high fliers. The atmosphere is great for parties or more intimate dining. My wife and I eat here regularly and we also enjoy the place with parties of friends and family. The big round tables are ideal for this or for a bigger function the party room (with Karaoke) is perfect. I see that some reviews have criticized the service but hey, these guys are really busy some nights and if the company is good and the drinks are flowing what's wrong with a little wait. Just don't let Eddie and Alex the two very professional and funny hosts get you started on the shots at the end of the night. If I hadn't dined here so often my review would be very sketchy as on a few occasions I really didn't remember much when I woke up!
