On arriving at the restaurant we were ignored for almost 10 minutes by the staff, not a good start!! On seeing we had a small child we were told they do not have high chairs, luckily we had a travel high chair with us and we then seated.

The staff took another 20 minutes to offer us drinks and take our order. On receiving the food we found it to be very bland and tasteless. We repeatedly asked for chop stick and didn't receive them. All in all a very disappointing experience!

“Poor to average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

We went here Sunday evening and there was only 1 other table occupied. We had been here a few times over the years whilst visiting St Ives, and it has gone very badly downhill. Lack of competition perhaps means they will continue to remain poor. Food arrived in good time but was average - the 3 of us had pork in szechuan, chicken in Szechuan and chicken & mushroom, 2 with fried rice, 1 with noodles. 3 bottles of Chinese beer boosted the price up well above what the meal was worth. Very disappointed and I'm afraid to say we won't be returning next year

“rushed”

we had read reviews about this restaurant - however, we felt the service was a little lack-lustre and rushed.
Food was nice and decent sized portions

“I would not recommend it, very poor service and food quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

I had a takeaway meal on August 16th for £26 from this restaurant and went to a restuarant for the food as I thought it would be better quality. We ordered crispy duck and it was awful and was definately not 'crispy' Duck and was tasteless. The rest of the meal lacked meat and was padded out with onions and more onions. I eat from Chinese takeaways a lot and this was the worst for quality and meat content I have had for years.

Visit one of the many others in St ives as they are much better quality and value for money as we found out later on in the week.
