Extremely quick service, very reasonably priced (the price of a takeaway)! The drinks aren't too expensive either, though we have to beckon the staff over to get another. Often go here after a few drinks in York for a guaranteed decent meal. The building itself is quaint and typical York.

The restaurant is in an old building and up the stairs. (The one ladies toilet is downstairs as you come in, the gents is upstairs).
The restaurant was packed on a Saturday when we went in for lunch, but the food still arrived on time. Had a good deal 2 courses for £6.95, so we also chose spare ribs and prawn crackers...could hardly move afterwards, and still left some rice and chips! A number of Chinese were also eating, so it was also a good sign! There are other meal deals too, as well as a la carte!

We've eaten here several times and are always happy with both our food and our service. We've ordered a few items which are quite good, but return for the hot pot which is excellent.
The service is always great and very attentive. The atmosphere is eclectic and full of character.
To all those reviewers who comment that the curry isn't that great...Seriously? If you want curry go to an Indian restaurant, not a Chinese restaurant.

This is a lovely little place which is always very busy and many of the customers are or appear to be from the far east which is reflected in the quality of the food. They do a lunch time special for those on a budget. Go on give it a try.

Decent Chinese restaurant in a unique setting. The restaurant area is very compact but has a nice character like many restaurants in York.

The service was friendly and overall good value for money. Food was OK, could have done with a bit more seasoning/flavour, but nevertheless was acceptable. Wouldn't object to returning, but equally would not rush back.
