Although not much to look at from the outside, don't let that put you off. The food was served quickly and of excellent quality. Offering the traditional range of Chinese cuisine and some Thai also, there is something for every taste

Always a great place for an excellent value lunch. Tends to be open more often than other eating places. Service, usually by local girls is superb.

Had a take away. It was a very busy night as most others closed. Quite expensive for what we got but food was ok.

Dropped in looking for a quick dinner. Very pleasant waitress who was helpful and very chatty. Food was nice, nothing special but was hot, tasty and came very quickly. Would return.

Went twice recently and were the only ones in it ! maybe weekends they have more customers. One waitress, same both nights, was friendly and chatty, well presented. The menu is a regular chinese food that you might expect anywhere, prices are regular not to expensive. The small bar has the usual Tiger and chinese beer. It is quite a... More

We ordered two portions of chicken wings to start at £5 per starter and for this £5 you get 2 yes 2 chicken wings so £10 for our four chicken wings. Sweet & sour chicken hong kong style... More

Tried here as everywhere else booked on a Saturday. Better than nothing but pretty standard Chinese food full of MSG. Nice waiting staff but definitely don't go if you are a foodie!

Have been to better Chinese restaurants but the staff were friendly and the food was tasty, good value for what we got. however I totally agree with previous comments that the toilets are disgusting and the owner must do something to bring them up to an acceptable standard. Like most people I always think that the standard of toilets reflect... More
