I really like this restaurant. The food is lovely and the staff are a very friendly bunch. When I eat in, it's always lovely. But every time I get a take-away, they never fail to completely ignore my request for 'no onions'. I hate being awkward but I absolutely hate them. I repeated this twice today for lunch and low and behold, when I got back to work, it was full of onions. I'd even go as far as saying they gave me extra. It's so frustrating because I really do like the food. They're also not very flexible with the menu.

I'll definitely return for eat-in dinner, but take-aways are a write-off now.

We had the four course set menu for two people at £22 per head, and a couple of pints of of Sun Lik lager at £3.50 each. They added 10% service to the bill. The service was excellent.

The satay sauce on the chicken starter was great - nice & spicy. Seaweed: OK, spring rolls: OK, prawn toast: OK, spare ribs: meaty and tasty.

Crispy duck: good, and a good portion.

Sweet & sour pork: nice and crunchy - too much.
Chicken in black bean sauce: good texture and flavour - too much.
Stir fried veg: five in one day - too much.
Special fried rice: way too much.

I would definitely come back here.

We came here as it was recommended by the hotel we were staying at and was so close!
I must say the prices are a little bit high (£10 for the curry alone, another £8 for noodles!) But the food was SO gorgeous!! Went on recommendations of the waiter and everything was stunning!

I visited last Monday evening (4th March), I was on my own in the city. The service was first class, & both the mixed starter & the soup were lovely. The main course rice was a smidge glutinous for my taste, but that's an extremely personal thing. What couldn't be denied & the reason for the 'average' score is no mean feat; my sizzling chicken in black bean sauce was bland, practically no taste to it at all & certainly no bite whatsoever.

This is such a shame as I've read other reviews here & can only guess that I visited on an off-night perhaps.

We had been meaning to come here for some time, and after our Saturday night plans changed we booked a table and within 15 mins arrived. Its a busy but there were quite a few tables free. Service was excellent and for 7pm on a Sat night the atmosphere great.
The food was good - nothing out of this world but good value.
I think this place is best suited to groups. They have the room to house large groups and I think it would be a fun place to be.
Havifn said that, we will be back as a couple.
