Came with a group on a weekend and was accommodated well on the phone and the table was waiting for us on time. The food was great (perhaps a little MSGish..) but the staff good and it did what it said on the tin! Helpings were enormous.

Good food, plenty of it and reasonably priced. Good and helpful service who were willing & able to create meals that are not on the menu.

Me and my colleague came her in June 2016 for our lunch, the food was lovely, service was good. Fast service I was not kept long before I got seen to. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves Chinese food and do not want to wait around for a long time

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.
