Appears to have closed which is a great shame as the food and entertainment was excellent. Lets hope Alun opens another Chinese restaurant in Hitchin very soon.

Eat as much as you can menu. Great selection of tasty Chinese dishes, so many to chose from but you can try them all if you want to!! And to top it all the owner will confound you with his magic tricks.
