“Superb”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

First class food and service. Chrystal prawns and aromatic crispy duck for starters. Seafood platter with noodles for mains, all washed down with a New Zealand red and a few cups of coffee. Overall a great night out.

“Great Food”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Went as a cowd for a birthday party. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Food was really good we went before 7 so all main courses are half price on certain days. Will definitely return.

“Don't be an Amber Gambler. It's a safe bet for top notch Chinese food.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Not been here for while but have had good memories of it. Lovely classy decor, friendly (possibly a bit too attentive) staff.

Starters - Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup, Prawn Cocktail and Peking spare ribs. All cooked and presented perfectly and no complaints about the portion size.

Mains - Chicken Satay, Fillet Beef Shezchuan Style and Barbecued Crispy Duck accompanied by Fried rice. All presented beautifully and all delivered on the taste front too. Lovely flavours.

Two rounds of drinks were the house wine, Tennents and fresh orange and lemonade. All arrived at the table promptly.

Quite a pricey place but you are paying for the lovely surroundings and the well prepared tasty food. Total for all the above was £91.

Would recommend this place if you want a higher end Chinese dining experience in a lovely restaurant.

“Staff behind your back waiting for your glasses to be refiled”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The food is great, no doubt about it. But the staff is dreadful. I went many times to this restaurant and no improvement at all with the staff. You have just the time to finish your dish and the table is clean. You have also to pay for the cloakroom and I don't it's justified. Will not go there again. Just fed up with the staff.

“Gem in Glasgow City Centre”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Cleanlieness & service impecable, all the staff very pleasant, cloakroom fast & efficient. now to the food the starters we had were well cooked & plenty to eat, while the mains were succulent (chicken satay & chicken with peking sauce were as good as I have tried anywhere, with ice cream quickly served and delicious coffee to finish topping off a wonderfull dining experience.
