We had garlic and chilli chicken as a main which was absolutely stunning. We were served by such friendly staff too. When we return to Belfast we will be coming here for... More

Incredibly friendly and professional service. They suggested things for us to try which ended up being delicious! The crab and fish were very fresh and char shu was very yum. I would very strongly recommend this place! It's beautiful and I will be back.

Excellent food and value for money. We regularly use this chinese restaurant and each time we are never disappointed. Staff are very friendly and attentive, food is always superb! Would recommend booking a table to avoid to disappointment as it is usually busy!!! Great location with ample parking available on main street.

We visited this lovely restaurant as a group of 13, ranging from grandparents to teenagers. Everyone enjoyed their meal, not one complaint! The food was so fresh and flavoursome and the staff friendly and couldn't do anymore for us. Will be returning soon. Thank you.

I once visited this restaurant regularly years ago but then I branched out into other directions in terms of cuisine and restaurants. So I was interested then, to see if it had stayed the same or if it had kept in step with current dining trends. The interior was largely the same but the menu had changed drastically. I found...
