Just popped in as we fancied a Chinese one night during our 4 nights in Bowness. Food was OK, service was OK. We were the only people in so no atmosphere. Bathrooms were adequate but not too good. I think there are probably better Chinese...More

Have visited 5-6 times now, and although its not a palace we find the food and prices acceptable. Yes its not 5star, but for price and quality and quantity it does the job. Usually busy and they turn lots away.

My family and I ate here recently whilst in Bowness. The quality of the food was poor and the service wasn't the best. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone visiting the town. The nearby tapas restaurant is far better.
