You can normally judge a good Chinese restaurant by the special fried rice. If this is the case then never again here. Tried it for the first time and it was terrible. Contained only finely chopped egg and ham with a scattering of shallots and prawns in 99% rice. Very bland with no chicken, BBQ pork peas etc. Never again.... More

An honest and enjoyable lunch. The waitress was friendly and the food presented well. Only tiny little complaint was that the sweet and sour pork lacked a little bit of pork but he meal was still great with no oily or strong additive taste.

We ate at Chef Li for dinner on Valentines Day. The food was lovely - nicely prepared and well presented, and excellent value. But it was the service which will bring us back to this establishment. Rarely have we been made to feel so welcome in a restaurant, and the greeting was anything but contrived. Genuinely friendly service is at... More

The service was excellent , the food was fresh and tasty, the steamed fish was delicious and great value for money, the restaurant was comfortable and clean. The only disappointment was there was no fried ice cream on the menu

This time we had Chicken with Cashew Nuts, Sizzling King Prawns, Mixed Vegetables Stir Fry in garlic and large combination fried rice. All the dishes were delish and came in huge plates. White table clothes make the restaurant... More
