good value in pleasant surroundings. A typical older style chinese restaurant where the food is always OK and the prices are acceptable. Nice staff.

The food is consistently good and we have always enjoyed our meals . Tasty and rarely am I thirsty all night after having one ...unlike other Chinese restaurants . Could do with a refresh in decor.

Surprised by some of the reviews and commentary on the interior! The venue is a traditional Chinese restaurant and takeaway in a modern 60/70s building amidst the old Knowle high street. The staff are very friendly and attentive but certainly don't push in or over familiar. I've been going for years now, either quieter dinners or larger groups and they... More

As a student you can get a meal deal type thing for 4quid which is pretty good and you actually get a lot for your money's worth. You must call up though. Food is great and like I said you get loads and a bag of prawn crackers! Service is good and food cooked fresh.

Absolutely awful. It doesn't help to have staff sneeze into the hand they then put your plate down with. Nor is it welcome to see staff reposition doormats then (without washing hands) serving drinks.

This restaurant serves consistently high quality food and service at a reasonable price. We've been using them for years and as a family run business the consistency is second to none. I highly recommend them for both an intimate dinner for two or a group booking. Recently visited as a party of 10 and the order was correct, the food... More

I don't think we have ever had a bad meal here! I've always really liked the duck in orange but all their food is great! The staff can seem a little stand-offish but are really attentive. Nothing really to complain about. A must go! The outside looks really rubbish but don't let it turn you off.
