The staff were exceptional.
The food was amazing.
Ambience was warm and friendly.

“Best Chinese food I've ever had”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

I visited this restaurant with my partner during a recent stay in Newquay, mainly based on the reviews I'd read on trip advisor.
Although it is a small and slightly tired looking restaurant, the food was delicious and very reasonable priced. The egg fried rice was the best I'd ever eaten and the mains were also delicious.
The staff were friendly and very attentive.
I would definitely recommend visiting this place if you are in the area.

“Traditional Chinese Restaurant and takeaway”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This restaurant is tucked away from the main street via a door way between two shops go up the stairs and you will find your self in the restaurant. The staff are friendly and the service is good. and the menu is pretty standard. The food is good and portions size is good as well. Drinks are reasonably priced. Will use this restaurant and takeaway again.

“Absolutely amazing”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We came to this restaurant on Tuesday night from a recommendation from the taxi company! As we are not local, and are from the North, we didn't quite know what to expect from a southern Chinese... We was greeted friendly by all the staff, and the chef even came out to speak to us at the end of the meal. There was 7 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food... My favourites being the salt and pepper chicken, seaweed and crispy duck!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant but if I could give it one tip, I would suggest adding salt and pepper chips to the menu (North style)!
