Very busy place. We came on a Tuesday night and arrived before 6pm. Within 45 minutes the place was nearly full and a couple of groups had been turned away. Menu is not overly extensive but quite adequate. The food was very good.

Don't get put off by the initial impressions - traditional and perhaps dated. The food and range of food is very well worth the dining experience. This restaurant has consistently been our 'go to' for quality chinese meals at a reasonable price, and will continue...More
