Visited this restaurant with party of three a couple of saturdays ago. Restaurant was very busy and there was a significant number of takeaways being done throughout the couple of hours we were there. Overall the food was good but regrettably the service was slow probably partly to do with the number of takeaways they were dealing with. Long wait... More

A busy (always a good sign) Asian cuisine in Esher. Just dropped in without reservation and got one of the vegetables. Had the crispy fragrant duck and pork in ginger sauce with spring rolls. All seved quickly and tasted great.the best part were the prices which were imho very reasonable. Recommended.

Really exceptional lunch. Had all the old favourites but they tasted new and exciting. Outstanding but unobtrusive service. We have already booked to return again.

Really nice food. Prices reasonable. Staff hurried, basic, just doing a job. No personal attention. Robotic almost. Grumpy reception chap when we arrived ten mins early. Food was very good though, so would go back.

I have been here many times with my partner and we have had sit down meals. We ordered take out the other day and the food was still at the high standard and incredibly well priced! Thanks again and great veggie options!

It's always nice to find lunch places that I can take the kids to. The staff are friendly and nothing is ever a problem. We arrived, without reservation booked, to find a very full restaurant. The waiter took a few minutes to check availability of seating and immediately came back, forewarning us that service may be a little slower than... More
