As stated previously owner comes across as quite intimidating standing behind the bar surveying all that he owns. Staff are treated as servants, undermining them by snapping his fingers in an aggressive manner to attend to customers before they've even walked through the door. Food was at best okay, ordered chicken & almonds with plain rice and my colleague had... More

This place was so much more than I had expected. The food was amazing - better than most places I've sampled in England, no goop in sight. Going against recommendation, my friends and I ordered 4 mains and a large rice, and crackers (3 mains would have been sufficient) but it was so good I didn't care how full I... More

we have eaten in a few times and taken away twice. the food has been quite good and pretty authentic which was a nice. the only disconcerting thing is the owner at the bar who we caught yelling horrible things at his poor floor staff, we have always caught him in a terrible mood, it gives off a bad vibe-...

A big favourite with my kids who like the wide range of Chinese food on offer. Service is always good and food tasty, usually arriving quickly. 'Non-Chinese food' is available and there are take away options too. Not too busy when we went on Wednesday night.

Great food, friendly staff, Hours are not always convenient but it's worth waiting for them to open. Great Sweet and Sour Chicken.

NIce food. Good size portions. I like that you can order large and small sizes. The caramelized bananas are fantastic. The waiter is unique.

I was the only one there for lunch and that does explain a lot after I had my meal there. The owner appear to give the impression he is doing you a favour. Avoid.

This restaurant i have known for over 35 years, It was once in the 70s 80s THE place to go. After many years I returned and was met with the most sullen misereble manager (an American), The room was dark although mid day, reason was, "saving on electricity" we spoke about how the place used to be and response was...
