“They sure do make you feel special !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

It has been a while since I have been to this restaurant and it seems as though there has been a change over of staff. That being said they still treat you like your someone special as soon as you walk in the door. The service is good - no rush, no problems, they just treat you right. The food is still as good as it always was and with the 'as much as you can eat' menu you can have as much of it as you like. Soup, starters, crispy duck and main course for £20 a head is great value for money on a Saturday night in Ponteland. The draught lager is the same price as the local pubs and a bottle of wine won't break the bank either. The atmosphere is always good and everyone in the place was very happy which is not surprising ! Big groups and small groups, couples - everyone was enjoying the night. I won't leave it so long before I return and I would advise anyone who wants to spend an evening in good company in a freindly atmosphere and who like good chinese food to give it a try. You won't be disappointed and will leave feeling happy and content.

“Great food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Yesterday was the first time my partner and me visited this restaurant. I must say it's absolutly worth to go! It's all you can eat Chinese but you can choose from menu (there are lots of choices) and food is freshly prepared. The starters you must have a try are smoke chicken and ribs! They are the best starters we've had ever! And the main cources are nice as well! The waiter served us was friendly. He understood our requirements easily and worked efficiently. We had a great meal and will definitely come back! It's strongly recommend!

“Still as good as ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Haven't been here for a while but standards have not slipped!!! Party of 7 for a Friday night, booked a table 2 days prior, no problems but was quite busy.
Food is banquet style but 'all you can eat'. Massive selection of starters and mains inc. King Prawns. Order the full meal at the outset but if you want more of one course (who wouldn't) then order that and next course follows when you want it.
Service great, food reasonably priced for the quantity and quality (£17 for the banquet plus £3 for the duck if you want it).

Smoked chicken and satay are amazing!!!

“Cant fault it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

In the last 5 years myself and my friends have visited this restaurant a lot as it is so delicious! Its £17 per person for all you can eat but if you go on a Monday they have a special night where it is only £12 each. There is a wide selection of choices, soups, many starters including smoked chicken, seaweed, all the ribs, spring rolls, prawn toast etc. There are many main dishes to choose from and they have some lovely dishes which I haven't seen in many other Chinese restaurants, - french style and garlic butter.
The staff are lovely and are good fun, we love going to visit Francis (one of the owners) he is a good host and we have had many birthday nights out here where he has really looked after us. For the past two years we have went there for new years eve and it really is a fantastic night. There is a set menu and a karaoke and once you have seen the new year in there are fireworks in the street outside.
The restaurant is very clean and we have never ever had a bad meal here. We like to try a lot of restaurants and would strongly recommend this one for all occasions.
Also, if you fancy a takeaway they have a delivery service. There is loads to choose from and they do a special for £13.00 you can have 2 starters, 2 mains and either a rice or noodles. If you feel a bit peckish you can even add more or get the special twice!
