Pleasant atmosphere and good food.

Our meal got off to a rocky start with a pint & half of Tennant's beer that tasted sour. Clear evidence of a low turnover of beer and unclean pipes. That said, the food was very good. The downside was that it was unduly rushed as if the staff appeared to be in a hurry to close, (it was only... read more

Lovely meal on a wet saturday afternoon in ayr. £7.95 for 3 courses...great value and lovely fresh, hot tasty chinese food. We had chicken noodle soup (lovely broth btw), chicken and cashew nuts, hot/chilli beef, fried rice, prawn crackers. Followed by warm apple pies and cream. Hit all the spots. Well done new city!

Came in with brother and partner for quite a late dinner, about 9pm on a Tuesday. Wasn't very busy, 3 maybe 4 tables in. Had the salted chilli beef was so so delicious. Generous portions so asked for it to be packed to take home. Was charged 50p for the box which was kind of weird but couldn't really grumble... More

Called in for a late evening meal after the theatre. For a Saturday night the restaurant was quiet. The welcome was friendly and our drinks order served quickly. The food was freshly cooked and very tasty, we enjoyed the meal. Would eat here again.

Have been going to this restaurant for many years now. Best Chinese food I have ever eaten! The owners husband/wife could not be friendlier. You could eat your meal off the floor as its spotless. Great value esp. at lunchtime.

Ended up here after trying three other restaurants (it was a racing day and we had not booked and they found space for us), food was very tasty, will probably visit in the future.

Visited recently with family and we ordered off the three course menu. The price is good, but the size of the portions was shocking.
