Looking to pick up some late take away on a Friday night in Dickson. This was the only place still open! Really enjoyed the food, very authentic Chinese flavours. Will return.

Staff do their job, just not friendly. Food pretty good but the staff make it a stale experience. Their poor English mAkes it hard to understand what they say and our order was wrong because of this. They fixed it but I had to wait a while for the correct dish. Some staff cannot take group photos.

I used to visit the restaurant as a child in the 80,s so it was kind of nice to take my word kids. The price was a little steep but food was yummy.
