Wanted some quick takeaway after a tiring travel day and stopped in here. We devoured everything we ordered; lemon chicken, beef with vegetables, egg fried rice and prawn toasts.

I went last night with my wife as we were staying in Windermere. We literally dropped in and asked for a table for two. Their chilli and pepper beef was outstanding. Hot, crispy, loads of flavour. My wife had their duck in black bean sauce. Again very good. We'd certainly visit again.

Visited while on holiday in the area. Food was very nice and a touch above what I would normally get back home! Very quick service and good portion sizes. Staff were friendly too.

Food was Excellent, service fast, polite and efficient, portions massive. A small but friendly restaurant and if the fact that two thirds of their patrons were chinese would suggest that their food was authentic. Would cerainly re-visit

My partner and I went for a meal last night and I can honestly say it's probably one of the best meals from a Chinese we've ever had! We will return !

Popped in for a family takeaway whilst on holiday at Windermere. Ordered Sweet & sour King Prawn with boiled rice, Shredded beef in chilli sauce with boiled rice, and Prawn crackers. All the food was delicious a fresh. Would definitely go again.

Very disappointed, went for a take away, the service was quick but on returning to our holiday lodge, the chicken chow mien was not very nice, it lacked flavour and the imitation garlic, which I think was garlic salt was very over powering. The noodles tasted and looked like packet ones, and the chicken pieces were very strange. The spare... More
