“For some reason, we love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Just a great family night out. It is a special place for us as a family, good standard fare. Excellent service. Authentic Chinese in the Birmingham Chinese Quarter.

“You get what you pay for.. It's £11.99 for all you can eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Located in a corner of the top floor of the Arcadian centre it’s not the easiest place to find. The assumption seems to be that everyone is going to eat from the smaller "all you can eat" menu rather than the a la carte. Service is really prompt, probably as the restaurant was only about 20% full on the Friday night we attended (probably due to the terrible weather), and the staff pleasant and well presented. There’s a choice of around 6 or 7 starters, same with mains and a few sides to choose from, you can order two of each per person and reorder as many times as you like when you have finished. The food was of OK quality, nothing great, but at £11.99 pp and drinks reasonably priced (its licenced) then it probably offers good value. I suspect there are better places to eat in Chinatown, but at a substantially greater price.

Arrived early evening on a Saturday without booking - staff friendly and efficient - we had buffet menu which was reasonably priced and good choice.

Would definately return.

“student's view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

EXCELLENT and cheap.
huge variety of authentic dim sum and also more anglicized dishes (e.g. chicken curry, urgh.)
the waiter even let us have dim sum after the dim sum kitchen was meant to be closed because we called in advance
we had a really lovely time!
we're planning to go back again FREQUENTLY.
