Very disappointing lunch,we were made to feel unwelcome as soon as we arrived, told they shut at 2 o'clock, which I can confirm they do as at 1.45 we were told the kitchen was closed and we could not order anything else and as we were in an all you can eat restaurant found that very strange, then they proceeded...

Excellent food, as always..However we seemed to be rushed through today. This was the first time we had been in on a Sunday lunch seating and altho we arrived at about 12.30, so on the face of it, had an hour and a half in which to eat, I felt we were rushed thru our courses.. shame as we've been...

The food was lovely and came out very quick. Best chinese im Ashford and certainly my first choice when wanting a chinese. Staff hovered around us and we were soon moving from starters to mains before we knew it without having any rest bite. As soon as we had finished the last of our food they were there asking us...

Some of the best Chinese food I have ever tasted. Incredibly popular place and I am told by knowledgable local friends the best in the town. A little bit expensive but excused by the quality. We eat from the eat as much as you like menu. Well worth a visit.

When writing this review I read the previous comments and wondered whether we had been eating in the same restaurant and town! This is a great place to eat, and the only Chinese restaurant in Ashford I will eat at. It's been years since we visited this restaurant and after a long day we popped in unannounced at 18:30. I...

Avoid, phoned after 1 and half hours to be told our order was in their drivers hand. Phoned after 2 hours to be told they hadn't made our order and would be another hour. Having had children waiting to eat is just unfair to be treated like this. Not a single word of apology. IGNORANT. Now I have to wait... More
