“Good meal and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Food was surprisingly good, service also friendly. I ate the aubergine thai green curry and my partner had shredded chicken.

“Sense of Decline”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Been here on and off for years and have noticed during the last few times a decline in the standard of cooking. The dishes have been getting simpler and less tasty, as if cutting corners (while at the same time they've put their prices up). This place used to be good, but now it seems very average. The service is usually friendly and the food reasonably quick in delivery; this time it was super fast, which makes one suspicious, especially as the chicken was that common type of textureless stuff that looks steamed and appears almost synthetic: in other words, not just cut off the bone, so to speak. As the place is small, people coming in for their takeaways doesn't help, nor do street dwellers asking for plastic cups for their beverages. Hopefully this downturn won't continue further.

“Friendly Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Recieced a friendly service, but have to agree with a previous reviewer about the rice being like something you'd get in Iceland for a pound! The meal tasted ok and very large portions and reasonable price

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

One of the best Chinese Restaurants in Thanet. Food is always great - huge portions and the staff are incredibly friendly. We have been here many times and never had a bad meal. The set meals are great value for money.

“Worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Having recently moved to the area we thought we would give this place a try. Delivery was fast and food was nice and hot. We ordered 6 dishes and all were tasty and well cooked. Would recommend.
