Best Chinese food by far. Have the spare-ribs (salt and pepper), you won't be disappointed. You usually get a beer while you're waiting. Bonus. We usually get a takeaway

I went last night with a group of friends for a birthday meal. I wanted fried rice, there was no 'special' fried rice so i opted for the roast pork fried rice. That is all it was, no peas or onion etc mixed into it for £6 (singapore vermicelli was my next choice but opted against, wish i hadnt). I... More

We went here on the strength of reviews on here and I can confirm that you won't be disappointed. The service was very friendly without being intrusive. The food was excellent and I can't fault the quantity either. It is one of the best Chinese restaurants I have visited and can recommend it wholeheartedly.

A restaurant we always visit,with friends, on our trips to Lancaster. Julie always remembers us and the service is excellent. For lovers of Chinese food this is the place to eat. The scallops with ginger and spring onions are so good they deserve a star rating. The prices are very reasonable and the value for money outstanding

By far the best Chinese in Lancaster and the surrounding area. Julie literally cannot do enough for anyone, she goes above and beyond. Ok, the decor is dated and a little on the strange side but the food and service is exceptional.

The best Chinese in lancaster. I have visited this restaurant since the late 90s and have never had a bad meal. The staff are very attentive and food prices are very reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant for all occasions as it is good for a special occasion and for a quick tea out.

Have eaten here for many years, staff are excellent restaurant is a bit small compared to some but spotless, always busy which is a good sign, food is excellent and they also do take away and not overly expensive. In my opinion probably one of the best restaurants around Lancaster and I have tried quite a few.
