Have visited this restaurant many times and always had good service and great tasting food. This visit was disappointingly quite the opposite. All the food appeared to have been cooked and reheated, e.g. stuck together hard pancakes with overdone duck and even a second lot of pancakes fared no better. The chicken in my dish was more of the slimy tinned consistency than fresh and served with burnt peanuts. The lemon chicken dish was also of very poor quality. Service was slow and they were busy but not full. There seemed to be an atmosphere amongst the staff as they were not as cheery as usual. Perhaps we were unlucky and they were having a bad night. I hope so as this was a place we were always happy to recommend in the past.
Ticks all the boxes for a good Chinese restaurant – smart clean modern interior with enough red lanterns &c to give it a Chinese feel, good quick service and excellent food from an extensive menu. We particularly enjoyed the sizzling monkfish. You're given a dish of very more-ish crackers when you sit down, and a small selection of fresh fruit at the end, very much appreciated. And we thought the price very reasonable for the quality – our bill was £50 for three dishes, coffee and a drink each.
We've been visiting China City for many years and it has changed hands a few times, but the folks that are running it now have got it spot on.
The dim-sum starter is delicious, and great if you want to try a few dishes (spare ribs, spring roll, chicken satay, sesame prawn toast and crispy seaweed). It is quite filling though, so bear that in mind if you order a few main courses to share between diners, like we do.
All the main course dishes are well defined, by that I mean that they're all different enough in style and flavour to give you a good selection of Cantonese/Chinese cooking. We've been to some places where the satay sauce looks and tastes the same as the black bean sauce, and so on, but here we know what we're getting when we order our favourite dishes.
The menu is extensive, and has some 'show stopper' dishes such as whole sea-bass with ginger and spring onions, which has all the bones removed by the waitress at your table.
The staff are always wecoming and polite, and will accept requests such as to omit the chillis from the Singapore noodles etc, (not something I ask for, I love chillis, but my in-laws prefer it without).
All the dishes we've tried have been authentic (as far as I'm aware), freshly cooked and full of flavour.
So, highly recommended all-round!
My wife and I used to live nearer to the China City than we do today and so it was 10 years since we last visited.
It was a regular haunt for us then and was always a successful visit.
A chance drive by yesterday and with us both hungry, we decided to stop and were so pleased that we did.
The venue is oddly located and does not look impressive from the outside, but trust us. Go in and eat great food, with an extensive selection of choices, great service and in a spacious, light and airy environment.
We left wondering why its taken us 10 years to return. It wont be anything like that next time. It'll be worth the extra 15 minutes drive.
