“Excellent Chinese food”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Came here for an early dinner on a Tuesday night. Although it was quiet on this occasion, I have seen it very busy many times, which was my reason for giving it a try. There is a great dumpling selection and they are delicious. The menu is very extensive and has the old favourites and some more daring dishes for the more adventurous. Dumplings to share, 2 main courses, 1 rice (plenty for two!) and a soft drink each for under £30. I will definitely return.

“Delicious and buzzing”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The sheer number of people frequenting this amazing little restaurant speaks for itself. The menu is varied and interesting and the food is so tasty! I went with my partner and a couple of our friends who are vegetarians. From the veggie options to the 'out there' choices of my boyfriend (duck tongues!), every morsel was a delight, although perhaps we ordered too much! The service was good for such a busy evening, and we were able to get a table at the last minute. Highly recommended.

Went for lunch on a Saturday and had one of the set menus for 3 people.
The food was tasty but pretty average.

“Great dim sum!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Came here recently for lunchtime dim sum. We hadn't booked so were lucky enough to get one of the few remaining tables. Very busy & good atmosphere. We had a variety of dim sum and each one was really delicious! Service good too. Will definitely return.

“Pleasantly surprised ”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

First visit and will be returning. Fab food and service. I ordered a set menu as there was so much to choose from and couldn't decide what to have!
