Visited here as a party of 4 family members on Saturday night. Refreshingly quiet. The food was stunning. Plenty of it especially the duck. We had the £20 set meal. The service was excellent. Will certainly go back when I am next in the area.

This used to be the Peking Palace, but was taken over and re-named some time ago. Last of many visits was on Sunday 27/6/2016. The dim sum is super - try the one with soup inside, shanghai dumpling. Roast duck is outstanding - one of...More

Yep, if you want a fairly descent Chinese, then you have come to the right place! The service is good whilst the staff are attentive and the selection of wine is pretty damn good (Saint Emilion - seriously yum!). I would assume most people would...More
