“Some of the worst Chinese food we have tasted”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2010

I am a bit baffled by the reviews the food in this restaurant has received. After reading the reviews we booked a table whilst we were visiting Windermere last week, we were a bit put of by the size of the menu, so many dishes to chose from how could they make them all freshly? We didnt chose a set meal but chose a selection, we ordered the mixed starter, it arrived very quickly but looked like it had been put in a deep fat fryer, the prawn toasts were soaked in oil as were the spring rolls and the crispy seaweed was soft and soggy with what looked like articificial colouring staining the plate. We chose to cancel the rest of the order and leave. I have to say the staff were lovely and when we complained they did not wish us to pay for our drinks or starters. So we had a very different experience of this restaurant than previous reviews.

“Lovely food and a bargain too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2010

We went to this restaurant after reading TripAdvisor reviews and were very satisfied. We had the banquet for 2 which was a bargain at £15 for 3 courses and tea/coffee. The Lucky Lettuce starter was a particular favourite. Sweet and sour was spot on and not too thick a sauce as they can sometimes be. Service was very good and we were served quickly. Definitely recommend.

“This an absolutely superb Chinese...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2010

This an absolutely superb Chinese restaurant. The portions are large but not overwhelming,the service is friendly, overall it offers great value for money. Most importantly though the food is amazing. My partner and I agreed that the prawn toast was the best we've had, and the other dishes we tried were also top quality. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Fab staff and best prawn toasts ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2010

We're regulars here, and have yet to see the staff fail to smile, despite some of the snotty visitors. The food is as good as you will get for a straightforward chinese menu, and it's quick, big portions and served with a smile. Take away is also excellent and quick. This is what all chinese restaurants/take aways should be like - they've raised the bar!
