My partner and myself have just had finner here. I think its always a good sign when lots of Chinese people dine in a restaurant and plenty did. We were seated straightaway even though we didn't have a reservation. Got our drinks and placed our order straightaway. The menu is vast so we opted for the set menu for two... More

This restaurant has a huge menu with many dishes not appealing to me (fussy eater) but being a bigger success with my husband who really enjoyed his liver dish. Many of the dishes are offal based - there are even frog's legs on the menu. Not my cup of tea as I prefer a more traditional chinese menu but the... More

Visited this restaurant twice in three days, The food is excellent. we ate off the special lunch menu two courses for £8-50 there was so much choice. The staff were helpful and efficient. The only downside and this happened both days is that the main courses did not arrive together. The first day my husband had eaten half his meal... More

Upon arrival we were directed to a waiting area. We were left there without any indication of how long the wait would be nor were we offered drinks. Had we been given an estimation of the wait and offered a drink then that would have been fine. Unfortunately we were just left waiting. Eventually decided to leave. Would advise against... More

We booked for four of us on a Saturday night and I was pleased we had booked, the place was heaving, a pretty good sign though! The staff were lovely and efficient and the food was superb. We ordered way too much food as the portions were HUGE. Everything was delicious and freshly cooked. There is a huge amount of... More

I recommend the crispy shredded... More

Absolutely amazing food and service. Everything was just perfect from start to finish. It was really busy and had to wait for a table but it was worth the wait, so would recommend to make a reservation. The manager was great and looked after us all. Cannot wait to come here again with more friends next time i'm in York.

Recently visited with family and thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The only remotely negative thing I would say is that the pictures in the menu downplay the sizes of some of the dishes: the portion size is huge! Although the restaurant was quite busy the service was prompt and attentive.

I went to this restaurant to have dinner with my friends. We get an authentic Chinese meal here. The food are so tasty, especially the Peking Duck. I am fully expect to do so again.
