We are a family orientated restaurant established for 16 years which provides great quality food made with the finest ingredients.Recently we have had a refurbishment & have done this every 5 years for the comfort of our customers.We also have great community spirit & have received a 'Proud of Stockport Award'for 'Most Community Spirited Organisation'from raising up to £160,000 for local charities including Dementia, Terminally ill children & Cancer related! Our menu has tastes from different parts of China but also has a very popular Omelette & Chips for the not so adventurous!We also have Gluten Free, Low Calorie & Vegetarian options.Our staff our most polite & efficient & the boss loves to give her personal touch in serving too! There is a large car park facing the premises & parking right outside for the disabled.The extended bar license provides a popular SunLik Chinese Beer on draft, along with many trendy cocktails & shots! We can accommodate up to 120, so whether it be a large party or a quiet table for 2, we like to think there is something for everyone!'Oh, and free WIFI too!!!
