I love this restaurant. Great food and good value for money. It's around £20 for as much dishes as you want, and it's worth it. Tried a few different dishes and I would highly recommend coming here. Get the Smoked Corn Chicken. The staff are very welcoming and friendly too.

I am astonished that this place is allowed to call itself oriental.
A bit like ryanair calling itself lufthansa. The food was shocking, no taste and canary style ingredients. You know cheap cheap.
The starters were dried up tasteless rubbish and if the main courses were freshly cooked then Im Cheryl Cole.
What a dump

Cold faded environment. Dirty carpets and tablecloths.
Hideous food that would not be out of place in the cheapest carry out.
Dreadful. Lack of anything resembling taste. About as authentically oriental as a greggs cheese and onion pastie.

Went on Sunday evening with my friend and her parents . Had previously been here at Xmas was packed and enjoyed it . On this occasion the starters were nice but main meals were poor chicken was watery and had not much taste . Couldn't believe the tablecloths were filthy on ever table and carpet disgusting needs a very good clean . We had coffee at the end and the cups and jug with milk were chipped we definantly would not go back shame as used to be a lovely place .

We were looking forward to some authentic vietnamese cuisine - we ordered the vietnamese spring roll starter platter, fried monkfish in vietnamese, seafood hot pot, a beancurd and mushroom dish. They were all tasteless (just salt), no presentation, didnt look apetising at all. The mains were way over priced. The dessert, mango sorbet had a couple of hard frozen raspberry on top and the cardboard base was still intact and stuck fast to the bottom of the plate!!

Service (a little chinese woman) took offence when we looked surprise as she was rattling away in chinese to my very tanned skin spanish friend when taking our drink orders. She later literally threw our deserts at us with the worse plastic smile on her face.

The place badly needs a good clean and facelift - not going back for sure.
