Second visit to this restaurant, but not buy choice. Relatives thought we liked it so they booked it again (cant be rude can you and say no). The starters as before are good, but when it came to the mains I stayed away from the sauce dishes and had chicken with vegetables, which was ok but nothing special. Our waitress most of been having a bad day as she was very abrupt and slammed the dishes on the table and if you asked for something it took more than one go to get it. For £20 each its just so over priced, our bill was (£170) with 2 drinks and 6 waters for poor food and bad tempered waitress I must have a word with my relatives so it dosent happen again.

Had a couple of days in Chester and we visited this place twice. Once to try the normal menu and the buffet the next day. The normal menu is a little pricey but the food was excellent and the services was very good too. The buffet was great too and you order the items that you want and they bring them to the table rather than queuing like at a normal buffet. A really good selection for the buffet as well.

There were 10 of us for a meal, the meal was very good, being able to go to the bar for your own drinks was good & made it easier when you all came to pay. This is a buffet (it was a Friday night), the cost was £18.90 and this included crispy duck. You just picked what you wanted from the menu, and this was served to you, which arrived hot. You could order as many times as you liked. A good place to go with a group of friends.

Should know better than going to an all you can eat buffet on a Saturday night but the kids wanted to go. To be fair great atmosphere and fast service but the food is awful and does nothing for the reputation of Chinese food.
We will never go back
