“Gorgeous food!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

We came here after reading some previous reviews on trip advisor I have to say the food was really great can't fault it but don't let the inside decor put you off! It's not an up to date modern Chinese restaurant but it you want great food I would recommend this place.

“Great night!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Came across this restaurant the other day with my friends after watching a film at the empire leicester square cinema. We decided to go get some chinese food from chinatown as it wasn't too far from where we was. The outside looked nice so we decided to come here for food and drinks. We were greeted by the owner of the restaurant, who at the time we thought was the manager. The guy was a great laugh. Anyways we sat down and ordered food and drinks. Service was good, food came reasonably quickly and was of a high standard, a cut above the restaurants around my area. The owner who we had now realised was not the manager came and took the time out to chat with us and ensured that the food was to our satisfaction. We then ended up having a round with him. What a Lad!! We then started talking about the karaoke rooms that the restaurant had which we weren't aware of. Fai, the owner then took us upstairs and showed us the newly refurbished rooms which had lasers and really comfy sofas. We then decided to do some karaoke and get some drinks in, it was a great laugh. It was totally unexpected and nothing that we planned to do at the start of the night, but he had a great time and concluded spontaneous nights are the way forward!!

“Old favourite”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Been eating here for aeons when it was 'Poons' and it's always beeen a favourite of mine. Plausibly priced with a wide menu of well prepared and interesting food. One of the things that drew me to it in the first place was the fact that most of the clientelle are oriental and they ought to know what's what!
It's been through a few changes over the years but to no major ill effect and remains my 'go-to' location for a Chinese in town.

“Karaoke and food - brilliant night!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Went here with a group of 10 girls for a friends birthday. We hired a private room from 8pm - 12am. The food was delicious and the karaoke machine was great! Lots of song choices - we didn't even get through all the ones we wanted! Great fun, would absolutely recommend this to anyone who enjoys chinese and karaoke!

“Grease!!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Popped in here for a post matinee supper. Looked nice from the outside and the staff were very welcoming but the food didn't live up to expectations. Everything was disappointing and too greasy. Wouldn't go again.
