Mixed starter was well done bordering on the side of burnt. Crispy noodles house special had no flavour and was served with under cooked chicken. Decor was drab and untidy as well as Unhygienic toilets . Crispy Pan Fried Dim Sun was good though. Won’t...be back.More

5 stars for the girl on the phone tonight. She was new, and we put in a very difficult order with various dishes that weren't even on the menu, but she was very helpful and friendly. She even requested certain dishes especially from the chef!...Thank you!More

We went to this restaurant on the spur of the moment - and it was wonderful. The fact that several customers were Asian, and the menu's being in Chinese, were good signs. We ordered our usual favourites, but next time we shall be more adventurous....The food is fresh, tasty and cooked with a light touch. Best rice I've ever had! Service is good, very helpful, even if English is not the first language. Definitely recommended.More

This is now a SiChuan restaurant. When I arrived there were only Asians eating in this restaurant. I took this to mean that the food must be quite authentic. The menu reinforces that impression, it is beautifully printed with images with Chinese characters and odd...English translations. The waiter and hostess were very helpful and I ordered the POT - they did warn me that it was for 2 people but I still had it and really enjoyed all the seafood and other things in the pot. I would really recommend this for the adventurous eater - I loved it. I think this is a newish identity for this restuarant on 4 Fawcett Street Sunderland. The decor looked new and the name is not the same as this place but same location.More

The food tasted beautiful and large portions. I've not had a bad meal yet! 5th visit. They've shorten the menu since my last visit but still a great choice.

Good chinese food often full of Chinese students which is a recommendation. Well worth the visit for something different.

The service was a let down, menu wasn't great and hard to understand. Asking for help wasn't very helpful as the waitress didn't speak English very (I'm not English myself so believe me I'm not being racist here) the food was ok but I would...not rush back any time soon.More

I can't comment on the food as we left before ordering. Service was poor to that point, no offer of any drinks, the menu is a joke, worst I've ever seen, bits of labels stuck over things on about half the menu, some with illegible...hand writing. We asked for help to pick something to start and were told only two starters were available. Surely not? Most Chinese restaurants are hugely accommodating. This one isn't. Avoid.More
