My mum went to this restaurant over 20 years ago and it was great then and still is. The service is great and the food is awesome. The sweet and sour chicken is perfect, so crispy and fresh, couldn't ask for it any better. I love the idea of a mixed plate for a starter, great for people who can't... More

Every time I have a Chinese now I'm going to have to come here. Live in Kendal and have family in Blackpool but I think it's worth the 40 min trip - just the best Chinese food I've tasted. Prices reasonable too (guess this is me comparing to L.district) as normally need to remortgage to eat out over here!!

We ate here whilst on holiday in Blackpool. The service was very good, all the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was well cooked and you could tell all the ingredients were fresh. They also offer a good children's menu too. Well worth a visit.

Came here with my family and my boyfriend just over a week ago. Couldn't complain about anything, the food was lovely, atmosphere was good, staff very attentive. Best Chinese meal I've ever had! Clearly a very successful place as they were fully booked until 8pm for a table for 5 when we rang at lunch time! Love this place!!

Everything was perfect; food, service, atmosphere. I'm usually very critical of Chinese cuisine but this restaurant exceeded all expectations. Definitely worth a visit. Cannot fault this restaurant in any way.
