Ate here today with my husband, overall satisfied. He had chicken noodle soup and bread and butter. I went back in time and had prawn cocktail, very tasty and nice and cold and fresh. Second course for me was shrimp curry, ever so slightly on the sweet side for me, but never the less I still enjoyed it. My husband... More

I love Asian food and love Chinese food. Thought the portion sizes were really good. We took advantage of 3 course special (until 6.30pm). Can't be robbed for 8.95 3 courses. We had spring rolls, satay chicken x2, king prawn schezuan, chicken black bean, chow me in. Fried rice, ice cream and chocolate gateau. If you like chocolate then that's... More

By far the best Chinese in town. Staff are always friendly and helpful, chicken noodle soup starters were good and the sweet and sour chicken ball main with a side of chips was also very good. Food is a 10/10 and we will be back.

Good sized portions. We both had 3 course meal offer. Felt very hurried with our meals not even 3 minutes between courses. I had double chocolate gateaux for dessert it was awful. Tasted of cheap powder and portion itself very small even for a toddler. Price was good.

Family meal out, food was nice good portion and reasonable prices. Only downside was the staff. Very abrupt and not very friendly at all, no courtesy check and when dessert came out we were being 'flung' the plates to hand out! Wanting to pay by card but this took far too long- card machine doesn't work when phone is in... More

People serving looked miserable and not very welcoming.Ordered curry and rice and when it came it looked grey in colour,watered down and tasteless.Complained and returned this dish and ordered chicken noodle soup instead.A waste of time as this was also tasteless.Very disappointed.Was not charged for the curry thankfully!

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews of this place before we went! Seldom seen such polarised opinions about a restaurant! Evidently we were lucky, we were really hungry and it was the restaurant nearest our parking space. Starters were lovely, main courses were perfectly acceptable, and we found the two ladies who were serving perfectly friendly.
