One of my favourite, cheap and great value.
I often order duck and charsiu pork with rice, never regret for them, just one thing that have to pay by cash but I know and that's fine

Went after looking on trip advisor went along as just wanted some tea before going to see Mr Izzard, as other reviewers its not a restaurant its a café hence basic tables and chairs. The staff are quick and efficient, the food is average at a good price. We had 2 colas, mixed starter, lemon chicken, fried rice and house noodles, came to just over £24. The menu is extensive however its layout made me flick through and just end up going to the section that's laid out like a normal take away menu and ordering off there. Not bad and would probably go back when in the area if looking for somewhere quick and reasonable for a meal.

"I fancy a Chinese", said I this afternoon, and after a brief look at Tripadvisor, we ended up at this restaurant. I couldn't have been happier that we did. Authentic menu and very friendly staff. We had three dishes, came away stuffed silly and with a doggy bag, £30 down. All quite different and delicious flavours. Szechuan chilli beef (fabulous, but don't get if you don't like hot stuff - loads of tiny bullet chillies); salt fish pork and aubergine vermicelli - wouldn't have known about the salt fish, but v tasty with aubergine done to unctuous perfection; and last and possibly best, stuffed bean curd green pepper with black bean sauce: not your everyday Chinese restaurant black bean sauce but subtly flavoured and poured over almost-crispy-fried tofu and... chicken (not announced on the menu, beware veggies!), wrapped in tasty large pieces of green pepper.

I'm so glad we discovered this place - just great!
