Visited whilst on holiday. Good food. (Lemon chicken) only downside is that the decor is a little tired and needs updating. Could put some off. But as stated food was good.

We have visited here many times over the years when in Keswick. This holiday we visited twice during the week. Great food as usual, consistently good. The first visit we chose options of the main menu and then later in the week had the set 3 courses for £13 per person. Also very good and very reasonably priced. This time... More

We came here on a Friday evening; food was good although painfully slow considering the place was half full. Toilets did not feel clean; and cubicle door had been removed with main door with lock and paper towel bin was up on a ledge so you had to either touch the lid to open or hoick your leg up to...

Nice takeaway in centre of town ,we had set meal off the early bird menu which was good value. Not expecting much as the lakes can be expensive I was pleasantly surprised.

We have been here lots of times over the years and still find the set menu is excellent value. The service on this occasion was very good (although it was early evening with not many people in the restaurant).

Visited here as soon as they opened one rainy Friday evening. We were the only diners there. Decided on the set menu, which compromised of a selection of soups, starter and main. The soups were both excellent, as were the duck pancakes. Both of the main courses were let down a little by the rubbery chicken. Flavour wise, everything was... More

We visited here after reading other reviews. Unfortunately we were disappointed. Perhaps they were having a bad day, but the service was slow and the food was average. We ordered a starter platter that was missing seaweed (as described on the menu). Instead we received a substitute on our plate with no explanation or apology until we commented. Sadly the... More

It's always great to get something to eat immediately on arrival- especially with children- so the free prawn crackers were v welcome. They topped us up twice more without us asking- much appreciated! They didn't do a kids menu so the four is us had the £13.50 banquet each. Soup ( which we skipped), mixed starters OR duck (we had...

Visited on Wednesday 17th. We decided upon the set menu as it looked the best value and it would save us combing through the menu. Good quality and certainly decent sized portions. Chinese food can sometimes have a reputation for blandness if not done properly but not the case here. Would certainly visit again if in Keswick
