When you go into a Chinese restaurant and it's full of Chinese diners, well you know it's going to be good. And indeed it was; crispy duck was superb, and other dishes similarly so. Really tasty food. And even though the restaurant was full the service was prompt and efficient. Totally recommended.

Extremely poor qualit, Firstly the aromatic crispy Duck, was half cooked, and far from crispy. Could no eat it.

The only edible dish was special fried rice. In all a... More
