We have eaten here before and always enjoyed the food. Very quiet at 6pm on a Sunday evening, but none the worse for that. Crispy duck is an excellent starter plus some prawn crackers. We had the sizzling steak, which was very good and was placed on the sizzler dish at the table. Caution - very hot!!! Sweet and sour chicken Hong Kong style was very good and a very generous portion.
Very enjoyable, good value meal and very efficient service.
One criticism I have to make. I cannot stand the smell of lilies and there was a large vase full of them on the shelf in the restaurant!
Parking can be a problem and the very small car park is on a slope!

The salt and pepper ribs are to die for if you go eat them. The soup was ok and the main was overshadowed by the phenominal ribs.

On another note, the service is as good as it gets.

We stumbled across this restaurant purely by chance, what luck.....

The food was fantastic, service was impecable, the new manager could not do enough. A really friendly family atmosphere and very reasonably priced. Will definately make this one to return to.
