“Mediocre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

The service at this restaurant was fabulous. The waitress visited our table several times, and the food was ready lickety-split!

However, the food was merely average. We ordered the combination appetizer and beef chow mien. Neither of the dishes really stuck out for flavor or quality for either my husband or I. We threw on a bunch of salt to the beef chow mien and it helped a bit.

I prefer strong, distinct flavors.

“Great takeaway”

We decided to stay in one night and got a takeaway from here. Great value for money, well cooked food, really tasty and loads of it! We would be quite happy to do this again.

“Not bad at all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

A bunch of us booked a table for dinner here and over all the quality of the food was good and the portion sizes excellent....considering there were 8 hungry fishermen. Only downside was the price of the Chinese beer

“Terrible it was...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

I visited this restaurant with my wife and kid while returning from Isle of Mull. The food and service both were horrible. I would not recommend this place to anyone as its waste of both time and money.
