Went here for family meal on a Sunday evening and had an excellent meal, possibly the best Chinese food we've tasted. Massive menu - it'd take years to try it all and what a fruitful endeavour that would be. The decor is fairly spartan but the service is attentive and friendly. We had the mixed starter platter which included satay... More

We took the family for Sunday lunch and it was very busy as soon as the doors opened. I found the service a bit unfriendly but very fast, however different dishes came out at different times (some over 5 minutes apart). The food though was excellent and very authentic. The portion sizes were huge and I'm a big water. Prices... More

After reading TripAdvisor rave reviews about this place, thought we ought to try it out. Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed by the food. It is extremely over-hyped. It was so oily you could see the oil floating on top of the sauce, every dish looked the same (chock-full of onions) and was average tasting at best. The portions are massive... More

Took my partner last night and enjoyed one of the best Chinese meals I've ever had. I'm sure more Chinese restaurants used to be like this but lost their way. What a fantastic selection to choose from. We tried some dim sum, chicken with chilli oil and stuffed vegetables, all of which were delicious and great value. I'm going again... More

Located about 5-10 min walk from the City Center. It offers nice choice of freshly cooked and very tasty food. No wonder its well known for its value for money , generous portions and timely service. Friendly staff. We ordered the fried noodles with King Prawns and beef. It was yummy. Well worth the walk, although there is parking on... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times and the food has always been great. A really good selection of dishes including quite a few more unusual ones. Huge portions. Very friendly service and the food arrived very promptly even though it was busy.

Me and my partner popped in the other day and ordered the scallops which was absolutely to die for, succulent and juicy packed with flavour and massive too with some lovely Asian noodles on top. Someone on the table next to us got the soft shell crab which also looked amazing and they said it was too so I think... More

Very popular Chinese restaurant probably because of the value for money it represents. The portions are huge ( if that's what you like), the set menu for 2 could have fed 4! The food is tasty but bulked out too much with onion. It was close by our hotel so we dined there before the theatre. Not a repeat visit... More

Food average if that. Crispy tofu would be described as soggy. No apology just excuses. Made apologetic complaint and felt from management that we were to to blame. This is after having asked for advice in choosing from menu. Couldn't at all recommend this place especially in light of response from management to gentle complaint.
