Authentic chinese cuisine. We had the Lobster- fresh from the market that morning. Fascinating watching the Chinese patrons cook bits and pieces of food in specially adapted tables. Diners included young ( students?), families and more mature. we were given a complimentary starter and dessert- nice touch. Very reasonably priced too. A real taste of China. Extremely varied menu, polite but non intrusive staff. Started getting very busy about 9.30pm as we were leaving. Not a place for people who go to a Chinese for a curry half and half!! A proper restaurant with delicate and colourful food. Go try it.You wont be disappointed..

Second visit (13 January 2013) within 6 months. 6 diners on a special occasion. 8 main courses (2 in centre of table to share between all) 6 starters. 6 soft drinks, and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. The restaurant provided a full serving of tofu and 6 'fruit' juice for afters 'on the house.' Least expensive meal £6.70 most expensive (whole lobster) £15.70 Total bill £132. Great service, all staff immaculately turned out, helpful and never need to be told twice. Absolutely love the place.

Upon entrance to the restaurant I did nt really know what to expect. As the group that I was with was escorted to our table I couldn't help but notice a lot of Chinese people, generally i thought that was a good sign!. Until we placed our order.
Oh dear!
All the food we ordered 5 main course and starters were dry, over cooked and tasted nothing like what you would get similarly in another Chinese restaurant.
It was awful and spoiled a good night, never again, I will from now on only stick with what I know is the best Chinese Restaurant in Belfast by FAR! Its the SAME HAPPY on donegal pass pure quality!
