“Have a look in the toilets before you order!!!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

If we had I would never have ordered... I always think if they will let the loos get in that state what's the hygiene like in the kitchen!!!

I could only look at the Gents and the Disabled loos as no girls in our party.... But they were a disgrace .. I doubt they had been cleaned in 2012!!!!!!!

Having said that the food and service was ok .... Ill never go back though!!!!

“Good food but service can be hit n miss”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We've been here a few times now. We have been in for lunch to have Dim Sum and that is beautiful, fresh and tasty.
We've also been for the main menu and had a feast for 4 which was quite good value for the amount of food we got. The food again was definitely fresh and very tasty but the menu is a little more varied than other places, but still not ground breaking. That being said, it looks like the Chinese visitors order form another menu so I'm sure you could ask for that.

The service has been a different story. A couple of times it has been fine with no problems but one time we asked for a bottle of Piesporter wine, she brought us a Shiraz. We explained what we'd asked for was a white wine. She brought us a Chardonnay. My wife went to help find the right bottle but they basically presented us with just the two choices above!!
The other time for the feast the service was SO slow between courses. Now, In a feast-type thing I know you don't want to be rushed but I was actually getting hungry between courses!!

Overall, I'd definitely give it a go. If you're in at lunch try something a little different and get the dim sum menu.

“Chinese for the Chinese and us.”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Always good to see lots of Chinese in a Chinese restaurant. This place is not an exception. All fresh food and very well cooked, the chef(s) have a classic asian cooking background, you can tell. We were part of a group and even then I was surprised by the quality and price. I have been in a lot of places like this, this one stands out because of the value. The only thing I could put a negative note to is the clumsyness of some of the staff. But that can also be quite entertaining, depends on how you look at it.
