Great little gem. Always busy. Lovely food. Pleasant staff. We go for the fake meat dishes which are so good. Hard to tell its not real chicken or duck.

Nice place off the beaten track with a busy pub nearby for after or before. The portions are big so be aware of not over ordering like I did .One rice will serve two same as most dishes. Very tasty .will visit again when in london again . The red lion pub is nearby .

Service was extremely fast and friendly. I enjoyed the free prawn crackers and the fried noodles with mixed meat and seafood was delicious, especially the crispy pork. My only criticism is that some of the meat was quite chewy.

The portion sizes were a bit smaller than normal my last couple of visits but this may have been because I visited the restaurant relatively late in the day. Staff... More

Dropped in on a Monday night as I was searching for somewhere to eat close to my hotel. Doesn't look anything special from the pavement however was greeted by a warm welcome and seated quickly. Inside the restaurant perhaps lacks the interior design of much more expensive establishments however it is clean and comfortable. The food is top drawer authentic,... More
