Fresh and typical ingredients of Asian cuisine but used for innovative dishes, original flavors. There was recommended by people with definitely a great taste, prices a bit high compared to most Chinese, but whatever we are talking about another type of restaurant. The restaurant with a nice atmosphere perfect for small groups or couples, it is not huge but has... More

Went back for dinner hadn't been for a while. The food was even better than before and service is always flawless. Well run restaurant and the owner should be proud.

Literally got in at 1800 and was 2 courses done by 1830. Now that says they wanted their table back in 90 mins which is fine but how the hell were they cooking that food on time? Food was great, service was terrible and I felt really unwelcome - I was on business and had seen it online and thought... More

We go here every time we stay in Glasgow and it never disappoints. I went for the Shitake mushroom and pork Gyoza to start, then the chicken satay for mains. Best food in Glasgow, can't fault it.

This is a smart, clean restaurant where we received a warm welcome. There were two menus to choose from at lunch time, a set price menu and an a la carte. The food we chose was very tasty and the soup was very hot. I fancied the king prawns and scallops but did not think I would like the spicy... More

10 of us for farewell dinner for my son. Great selection of amazing dishes. Great effort taken to provide vegan dishes for one of our party. Service perfect! Nothing too much bother!! Everywhere very clean- even had a peek in the kitchen- so clean and organised! We will be back!

The food was very tasty, and service was friendly. We didn't have a single bad dish, only lots of good ones. Highly recommend this restaurant.

First visit here and regret we had not tried it before. Staff exceptionally pleasant and courteous, food wonderful. Quantity did not look much but all delicious and very filling. Highly recommend the tofu/aubergine/ladies fingers in black bean sauce - one of the most delicious dishes we have had in an oriental restaurant anywhere. Quite pricey though.

Went here last night for our wedding anniversary dinner after reading the great reviews on here. Were not disappointed! Salt & pepper ribs & prawn toast to start were amazing,good quality meat on ribs. I had chicken satay-although very good-sauce was a bit on sickly side towards the end. Husbands Thai green curry got a massive thumbs up,best he's ever... More
