“Excellent yet again.”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Consistently good with friendly efficient staff, the food is always quick and easy due to the wok style cooking, great place if you are strapped for time, it’s pretty large so it’s easy enough to get a table as they turn over pretty quick when busy.

“Not having a good experience ”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Still waiting got started within 4 / 5 mins. Eek. I would say short staffed.
Won't come back.
I really have no idea what they are trying to do here. Starters came quickly.
But despite a lot of busy looking staff around the place we have no mains. turning up.
The place is not exactly packed.
Idea!!! A lot of effort seems to be spent on the come and collect folk.

“Pity about their tipping policy”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Great food lovely staff, but I object to the way in which they 'obtain' tips. There is a levy on your food to cover service charge but when you pay by visa you are invited to pay a tip, which in a sense in double payment. Now I always like to tip good staff but I have not returned to this restaurant as I feel ripped off by this policy of them taking it and asking for it a second time, their excuse was that they allow customers to top up tips, I was not aware I had been paying a tip in the bill for months, they never mention it to you when they ask if you want to top up the tip with the visa bill. So be warned.
