“Love the older lady”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Used to go as a teenager with my mother and its not changed in all the years. Best budget Chinese food around. Banquets are terrific and New Year spectacular.

“Very tasty”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Food excellent but came in a large party and at 10pm they started cleaning the restaurant, vacuuming the carpet while we were still eating.

“Always Tops !!!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

What can I say ? Always a treat. This time we hadnt been for a couple of years and wanted a good Chinese meal somewhere that we could rely on, and early but were a little worries that it may have changed in standards as there are now many restaurants to chose from in that area. We needn't have worried. Still owned by the same lady who has run it perfectly for the past 26 years, and to the same standard of food and service as always. We went for the fixed menu, and had so much we ended up with a doggy bag tht provided the next evening's meal too. It was a delight as always. The sharing platter starter, the crispy duck shredded and served at the table, and the Sizzling beef you could hear leaving the kitchen plus three other mains, including, for me, the best sweet and sour king prawns I have ever had anywhere, and that included Hong Kong itself. They are to die for !!!. The service was excellent, and even though it was only early they were still busy, and the service still doesn't suffer for it. The lovely finishing touch of fresh orange segments, large and juicy to cleanse your pallet. Perfect in every way. Keep up the good work, we certainly wont be leaving it as long before we visit again. They even do take away if you collect !! Wonderful, whether visiting as a couple or a party for a celebration.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

10 of us visited for my daughters birthday. Birthday banner and cake provided. Very nice touch! Caring and thoughtful staff, just wanted to please. Wonder if its same on a busy night. No atmosphere as only us in there., on a Monday night! Reasonable prices. Lovely food, good portions. Place quite tatty and needs some money spending on it but would happily return.

“fantastic food and service”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Took 11 people here after completing a successful project. had round table and central spinner this is a much more civilised way to eat in a group. The food just kept coming and coming -1st course-2nd course-then a rest period followed by a really excellent main course.

The service by the owner (and staff) was attentive without being intrusive. Wine and drinks reasonable and delivered quickly. One of the best Chinese meals I have ever had I cannot recommend it strongly enough.
