food was very average, and although the menu was very long, the options were not that appealing. Rice came in massive portions, so one bowl is actually enough for 2 people.
The food tasted no better than your average Chinese take-away, and this was a disappointment considering Oxford has quite good Chinese restaurants in the form of Opium Den and Paddy fields (and from what I have heard, Sojo).
The staff were quite friendly, but one of the waiters kept a count on one of the party's wine glass orders, which was a bit embarrassing, saying things like "ooh, three wines already!".
Upon a query about the contents of the sesame prawn toast, waiter kept assuring us that it only had prawn... However, 10 minutes later, the waiter came back, saying he had been wrong. It was good that he was honest and admitted his mistake, but perhaps he should have been more knowledgeable in the first place, considering that a lot of customers have special dietary requirements, and sesame prawn toast is a popular starter.
We had asked from the outset to have separate bills, and they said yes. However, when the bill came, it was all together, including "drinks" as the total cost, not specifying how much each drink (we all had different drinks, and different quantities) had cost.
some costs: 3.50 per spring roll starter (two quite big spring rolls with a very bland uninteresting sauce); plain rice, 2.30 pounds, egg fried rice, 2.50 pounds, main courses from 7-12 pounds, average I guess 8-9 pounds.
