“Really good food!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a takeaway from this Chinese while on a break to Carnoustie.
From the outside, the premises didn't look very attractive, but the food was really, really nice!

“Good but could be so much better”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Visited this Chinese restaurant during a golfing week in Carnoustie.Some of the reviews on TripAdvisor had been favourable & so it was worth a try.It is a little unimpressive from the outside,I think the primary business is for take away food.
I asked at the takeaway side if the restaurant was open & a very pleasant young lady showed us to a table in the restaurant side.The decor was a little dated & linen table cloths rather than plastic would have been a great improvement,with the table candles being lit also.
Service by the lady I already mentioned was very friendly,prompt & efficient.
The food when it arrived was good value,good portions,tasty & well presented.The wine was very reasonably priced also.
With a little bit of thought to the ambience this would be a great place to eat.So nearly there,but do the locals want to support the restaurant side even if investment was made to the decor?
Thanks to the staff for a tasty meal & good service.

“Nice takeaway in a lovely we town”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We ordered a meal for a small group and despite a relatively large order there were no issues. Every dish was hot and tasty and we did not have to wait long for it to be ready. Throw in some crunchy prawn crackers and a bundle of fortune cookies this made for a super evening in with friends. We will definitely keep this menu and return.

“Best Chinese we've been to.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We have previously used the other Chinese in Carnoustie, one in Dundee and one in Broughty Ferry. And only wish we had tried this sooner. We ordered a carry out and the girl on the counter was really nice, took the dog for a wee wander and returned 15 minutes later. Our food was ready waiting for us. Everything we ordered was really nice and we'll definitely be back.

“Made to feel very welcome”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We arrived in this restaurant and it looked closed and only takeaway available, but the staff opened up the seating area for us. We had a fabulous meal, with dishes that were so different from your normal chinese. Very impressed with the staff, although not the best looking restaurant we have been in, it was great and didn't break the bank.
