Food tasty, plentiful and great value. The owner is a star, and if you get to chat with some of the waiters they can tell how kenya is doing. I spent many nights wasting away my time over a carafe of wine or three!!!!! Never did taste the pork dumpings, name put me off, haha.

This restaurant serves chinese food that is usually precooked. The food you get is not usually fresh. The place is very efficient if you need a quick meal, but don't try and judge them on quality.

We didn't have a reservation but they hurriedly accommodated 6 hungry women and the food came out quick and was very delicious. Huge portions too. We began with spring rolls and prawns on the table. The next course was also very good. Again glad to see so many vegetarian options. Great outdoor seating

We visited the restaurant on New Years eve and enjoyed a lovely night out in a warm and cosy restaurant. The setting is very calm and the sky view was awesome. The food was served in good time, large portions and very tasty. Truly authentic chinese meals that even the kids enjoyed.

I always come here with my family when cooking takes a back seat. Good food, service and there is a playground for children between the age of 2 to 6 years to play. I do recommend child supervision as the staff can do with a little help from parents especially when it gets busy. Pocket friendly and the food is... More
