No surprises here - but good traditional British Chinese food, well prepared and politely served. I have eaten here several times and the food has never disappointed. The restaurant is clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly and attentive. Crispy duck is excellent and the fried rice is always tender and light. The choice of beers is rather limited, but adequate. Value for money is good.

We went to this restaurant for the first time last night after noticing it had Dim Sum which is scarce in Aberdeen and we were not disappointed. We went for the set menu D and had one of the best meals we've ever had. The dumplings in the dim sum were cooked to perfection and were full of flavour, very impressive. Then it was chicken and sweetcorn soup with dried scallop again full of flavour. Then came the main course, a hot pot with minced pork and aubergine, black pepper beef and chicken in ok sauce, I couldn't make up my mind which was my favourite they were amazing. They used chicken thigh for the chicken dish which I love because it was succulent, the beef was not too spicy or overpowering as the pepper was very subtle and the mushrooms in that dish melted in my mouth. This is definitely our new favourite and can't believe we haven't tried this gem before. The staff were friendly and welcoming and made the evening even more special.

I took a group of international students here last night and a great time was had by all. Tasty food from the Chinese menu, as recommended by the lady in charge, including Salt & Pepper Tofu, Prawns in Tomato Sauce, Green Beans in XO Sauce, Sea Bass with Soy Sauce & Ginger ... There were 15 of us! And all for about £20 per person, including drinks and service. Students have already asked about going there again.

Four of us went for a dinner. everyone was very helpful. My friend asked for "the other menu" and found 2 good dishes. We had a total of 5 dishes to share and a big bowl of steamed rice. The food came out in no time. The taste was plain and not spicy even it said spicy on the menu. The ingredients were very fresh. We spent about 3 hours there. They kept refilling out pot of hot tea and glasses of water. We paid £71 and left £5 for tip. We may go back and ask for tastier and morespicy food.

A good Chinese restaurant with nice food and service. Great location and very welcoming. The starters were delicious and the mains were a good size and well crafted.
