“The best Chinese Ive ever had.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Staff were super friendly, chatty and accommodating even though the restaurant was BUZZING, we were lucky to get a seat as we hadn't booked.
The atmosphere in there was just like being in China, fast moving, loud and electric.
The best Chinese ive ever had and a fantastic night. Came out pleasantly full.
Cant wait to return.

Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch. There were four in the party. I have been to lots of Chinese restaurant all over the UK. We found this one very average. We would not go back. There are lots better in Manchester.

“Great Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Me and family have been to this Chinese on several occasions and we are never disappointed
The atmosphere is serene and the staff are very attentive.
The menu has a wide choice of dishes and banquets to choose from at reasonable prices, the food always arrives very quickly and always piping hot.
I would recommend this Chinese restaurant to anyone visiting Manchester

“Best Chinese ever!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

I love eating here and have been like 3 times now. Always great freshly cooked food and loads of it. Friendly waiters and its clean. Nowhere seems to taste as good as this place which is why I keep going back! Sometimes you have to wait for a table but it is so worth it.
