The title says it all... we had a table booked for 8, and eventually got our main courses at 10:30... the food is great, but by the time it arrives you are so hungry you can't appreciate it, and the price leaves a sour taste.... Won't be going back

We had heard this restaurant was good and the experience didn't disappoint.

The restaurant has the sophisticated feel, expected in this well-to-do and affluent area. The decor is well appointed (although not sure of the huge mural of Hong Kong harbour on the back wall), the staff are smartly dressed, polite and the service is very good.

It was busy on this early Saturday evening, and as we got nearer to 9pm it got even busier. However, there is clearly enough staff to cope and the service didn't suffer.

The food was delicious. We had the set menu B (for some reason didn't fancy the seafood platter on set menu A). The crab and sweetcorn soup is tasty, as was the (not so crispy) crispy duck pancakes, spicy prawns, sizzling beef and garlic chicken.

Earlier reviewers have thought it pricey. A firm believer that you get what you pay for, I found this to be of similar price to other quality Chinese restaurants in the area like The Imperial at Low Fell, Gateshead and The Pavilion at Iveston, near Consett.

Note: Parking is limited at busy times.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, would recommend it and we will definitely be back.

Thank you.

Kevin is a brilliant host and the staff respond with first class efficient service.I have been going there for years. The standard has never slipped, even when they moved premises. It's popular locally so book in good time. They have other restaurants too but Kevin's presence and knowledge of hiscustomers makes this one very special. Can be a bit pricey but always full.

This hotel is fantastic with excellent food. It's a little pricey but it's worth the money. It's family run and we have had excellent customer service. A real treat for a night out.
