Took a business client to this restaurant recently and had a great night . The service is good and the staff are friendly. The food is well presented and of good quality . Wines are excellent and reasonably priced. On the first floor opposite Gibneys famous pub.

On the plus side: Have been there twice before last Saturday, and on all occasions loved the food. Top notch Chinese. A step above what you would expect in a local takeaway. Negative: terrible wait time. Had booked several days in advance so although when we arrived there we were shown straight to our table, it took one hour and... More

I visited this place last night about 7pm , I had to say I was very disappointed. The waitress was so rude and made me feel very uncomfortable, she was not pleasant whatsoever, she also dropped food, maybe she was just having a bad day but it really put me off eating here. As for the food well that wasn't... More

This is a typical Chinese eatery with an extensive menu with all the usual dishes. What makes the place stand out is the good quality of food and the attentive and friendly staff. Family members of ours eat here a few times a year, simply because they love it and its reliable, and brought us along on this occasion.

I've dined at this restaurant on a number of occasions over the years, and have always had a consistently good experience there. Good food and discreet service from the waiters. Early bird menu good value for money. Recommended.

Having booked a table of six we found the waitress who must have also been the owner to be very sharp and blunt and made us feel that we couldnt take time to order. When the food came it aas nothing special and when the bill came we got the biggest shock. Very overpriced for all that you get. Definitely... More
