On holiday with the family and didn't want to cook. Checked trip advisor and decided to try it. Excellent service and cooked in front of me. Didn't have to wait long and the whole family enjoyed it. I would say it is slightly more expensive than I am used to but well worth the extra money. I would highly recommend... More

We love Chinese food but unfortunately this take away has become so very expensive, you will need to remortgage! At least £2:00 per dish over priced, but it is great.

Great tasty food. Only slight whinge was a little pricier than most takeaways. Don't order without looking at pricelist as I did!!!

Our first visit and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, brilliant service and food all served in a timely manner. We will be back! Only small negative, drinks were served a little on the warm side. Ice would be good .

It's not a Chinese to avoid and the food we get is pretty good. It won't disappoint if you want a Chinese takeaway. Not much else to say.

Large menu to choose from, food cooked while you wait and the wait is definitely worth it as the food is delicious, generous portions. Recommended.
