Used to be an excellent place to eat but it seems to have dropped off a bit, Not sure whether it was a change of kitchen staff or management but its still an ok place.

We ate here on a busy Saturday night - £18.90 each for the Chinese Banquet - eat as much as you can. Just kept ordering starters and then main courses. All were excellent - fresh, hot, tasty and large portions. Only one dessert is available - banana fritter with ice cream. Service was brilliant - as soon as we had finished one course, staff were there to take your order for the next course. Have no hesitation in recommending this restuarant - if we lived closer we would visit often! Dont let the entrance put you off - it is up some rather dark and cigarette littered steps above Iceland.

A friend and I went to this restaurant for lunch today. The staff were really attentive and helpful but in a way that wasn't intrusive. We had two steamed sea bass dishes which were truly stunningly beautiful. Gorgeous spicing, yet quite different for the two dishes that we chose. The fish was wonderfully tender. The dishes came to the table actually sizzling!! The kitchens close at 2pm but we were allowed to sit and chat undisturbed in the restaurant until 3.45 when we decided to make a move homeward. A fantastic experience.

Excellent starters...... Main meal was okay, service fine, thought £42 was a bit pricey as we only had a lager each. Have eaten here on a couple of occasions before (few years ago) I think the next time we visit Chester we will find somewhere else to go. Have to say though service was good, restaurant clean, maybe our dining experience was spoilt by someone complaining about their food being too hot & spicy.... question - why order a curry when you are in a chinese resaurant - if you want something mild get a sweet & sour!!
