Very extensive menu with a few items not seen before but all the regulars are there. Service is speedy and efficient Always a friendly welcome and it does a very good trade and has space for many covers Has a room which can be reserved for private functions

On arrival warm welcome and showed to our table a lovely booth in middle with glass partition suitable for a romantic meal for two. Nice decor clean and presentable maybe a little dated but nice all the same. Quickly served with drinks and came to take food order in good time when we were ready. The starters arrived promptly and... More

By my reckoning, this is best Chinese restaurant in Barnsley. It's not as cheap as some but the food is absolutely top notch and I wouldn't expect to leave hungry. Crispy Duck and Chicken Satay go down a treat as does the crispy chilli beef. Friendly Staff, plenty of parking and all round great experience.

We have been visiting this restaurant regularly for a few years now and it is always consistent. Staff are lovely and the food is exceptionally good every time. Cannot find a negative for this place at all, in our opinion the best for miles 5 star.

This place has been on the decline for sometime now. Shame as it used to be wonderful however our recent experience was just not good enough. One of the mains (which was supposed to be a 'special') arrived some time after the others and when it did arrive it was completely tasteless - hot but really watery and bland. I... More

.... apart from the company (which was fab as usual). So, where do I start ...? 1. Service - seems totally focussed on the takeaway side. Two people serving - a younger lady who was quite 'smiley', but the older lady ... goodness me; sullen, no customer service skills whatsoever. 'Stalks' the restaurant quite menacingly if I'm honest - you... More

After reading the last reviews we were apprehensive but wanted to give it a try. The food was excellent. No issues with the service or the waitresses. Definitely visit again

I have read the reviews answer was concerned about the attitude of the staff. Very inaccurate have been the posts. We found the staff very friendly and attentive. They were not in your face pestering to order more drinks. In fact others in the restraunt went to the bar themselves. The food was excellent again and the drinks fine too.... More

I would have liked to have given this place a higher score because the food is excellent and me and my family have been coming for many years. The woman who used to own and manage the restaurant has retired and without her being there the service and organisation of the place is becoming increasingly poor. It's a shame that... More
