Probably my worst dining experience on the island. I will caveat this review by saying I was told the chef had taken ill and there was an emergency fill-in but they should have closed the restaurant. I had been here once before and it was pretty good so that may be the reason but not an excuse for a terrible... More

This little restaurant is hidden away. A local recommended it to us. The place was packed. They squeezed us in. Food was lovely. Portion sizes are large. Staff very friendly. Only down side it is unlicensed although some of the locals had brought there own. This restaurant is situated behind marks and Spencer up some steep steps. It would be... More

Ordered a takeaway from here having had decent meals inside in the past. The delivery service was appalling, the food took nearly 1 hour 40 mins to arrive and when it did it was a pretty mediocre offering; the excellent wanton soup balanced out by the horrible, greasy, tasteless noodles I had. Would be very unlikely to try their delivery... More

Fantastic hidden Chinese in Douglas and a bargain 2 course lunch meal at only £9. Been a few times and staff are always happy with quick service. Never had a bad meal.

I went here for the first time last week.....food was cooked to perfection. Tasty, fresh and aromatic. Wonderfully attentive service and friendly. Everyone had a great meal. Also had fortune cookies and a prize draw for a meal for 2. I'll definitely go again.
