I have used this takeaway occasionally for many years and have normally been delighted with the food, unfortunately I will not be back after my most recent experience. I called in for a carry out for two one evening and ordered Chicken and cashew nut for my wife and a half Crispy Aromatic Duck for myself. I have to admit... More

We had one meal here when visiting dumfries. It was recommended by our hotel reception. It was quite busy but had room despite it being Friday night. Located at one end of the main street and easy to find. Decor looked a bit tatty with the outside a bit battered. Doubt we would have gone in without the recommendation. Inside... More

I just don't get the reviews which enthuse about this place. I first stepped into this establishment almost 30 years ago. In that time I think the only thing which has changed are the staff (you'll be lucky to see the same staff member in any subsequent visit) and the massive fish tank which happily, along with the massive fish,...

Starters of split deep fried prawns in honey, BBQ spare ribs & prawn toast, followed by aromatic crispy duck, garlic chicken with spring onions & beef with black bean sauce, fantastic & delicious! Well worth a visit if you want a lovely Chinese in a lovely environment.

Enjoyed the food which appeared to be freshly prepped and cooked. Service ok too, but toilets would be the reason I would choose not to return here. Not clean and poor facility. Very poor indeed. Won't be back!

Ordered a meal for delivery at 6pm still not delivered 2.5 hours later NO apologies or anything. Used to be a regular user but not anymore that's for sure. We only live just over half a mile away not like we are miles out of town
