Good menu, great food and service. Had a good laugh with staff when they gave us a bill for £50 less than should be in error.

Very overpriced, but I think it is because of the location, staff were friendly and attentive, food was a little bland but very fresh, it was clean.

Daughter passed her driving test, so treated her to a meal. Excellent food, clean and well laid out restaurant with friendly staff, excellent selection of dishes, tad pricey however a really nice experience and generous portions.

First visit was 'on the hoof' and they found us a table for 4. All meals (except for one starter) were excellent. Husband and I returned for a second visit and while the food was excellent they really need to do something about the air conditioning!!

Expensive average food and expensive beer. Everything seemed to be drenched in a red sauce. It was obviously fresh though bit I was disappointed with the lack of variety of tastes with the dishes.

Ate here several times on business earlier in the year. A solid performer although I did have a disastrously dry crispy duck on one occasion. That was the exception and Malaysian beef curry and chicken Chow Mein were always reliable with Hot and Sour soup excellent

Very accomodating as we were a large group. A little slow at taking orders but could not complain about the service as it was generally good. Food was pretty tasteless though. I have cooked better myself. Bit disappointed as enjoy Chinese food.

Thank Louise C
