We returned for a family meal and were not disappointed. Having prebooked for 5 people, we were placed at a large circular table with a convenient Lazy Susan. The service was highly attentive. Food was excellent. We enjoyed starters of salt & pepper squid (wow!), crystal prawns and chicken/prawn satays. Mains were equally tasty: orange chicken, duck with plum & garlic (exquisite!), sweet & sour chicken and beef fillet with black bean & peppers. There are also great desserts available: the sticky toffee pudding was light as a feather, hot chocolate fudge cake and Black Forest gateau were equally appreciated although I found my Chinese pastry with red bean paste to be a bit bland. Chinese tea in a pot and fortune cookies finished off a great evening.
We will return, especially as the half-price main course deal makes the pricing reasonable for the standard on offer.

Big price for small meals, I'm not a big eater and I left genuinly hungry. The food was OK. I was on a date with my partner, we thought we'd go somewhere new. Both of us are highly disappointed, we got a table for 2 next to a random post in the middle of the restaurant, right next to the kitchen. Couldn't relax from the waiters rushing past with other people's meals. There was free booths that would have made a huge difference to the night if we got one of those. There was two groups either side of this table. Why on earth would you have a table for two there? Our night was spent feeling uncomfortable and having the groups chatting right in our ears. We could barely speak to each other . The general layout just seems too crowded to me. The only "fancy" thing about the place is decrative onions on your plate and big curtains, it's a small overdone place. Awful, will never be back.

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.

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.
