Lovely staff and wonderful food. Highly recommend the hot sauce tofu and the Cantonese fried rice. Dishes served very quick and full of flavour.

Didn't experience any of the complaints that people have mentioned, I loved my meal and will be back, for sure.

Thank darlingink

1. Rude people
2.Expensive food
3.Tasteless food

This restaurant is basically rubbish.I am Chinese,I would say the food is far below average... The taste is just nothing. But most importantly, people are rude when ever you asked for something( like ordering, or asking about the price), they just answer in bad temper. I think there are lots of people making fake comments(those who said it is good), if u were Chinese, you won't say this shxt as good. If u were people from other countries , you must have misconceptions about Chinese food. They even offer wrong dish which doesn't match with the menu(the type of vegetables is different from what we have ordered ) but claiming it is what on the menu. Are you joking me?But we did not say anything as they insisted.
They charge you for 4.5 for few strips of vegetables which is even smaller than a salad dish.

But what makes us pissed off mostly is that when we asked for the unknown 3euro charge in our bill. We are just asking no offense ,nothing rude. They claim that is for the seating charge, u pay for the seat. I truly understand that sometimes there are 10%extra charge for the service, but just never for the seat. Fine, we would have paid anyway, but the owner just said something ironically ( using English to said there is also10% service charge in the U.S when we was talking in Chinese at the very beginning ) huh? We just asked for what we were paying. And you now pay for what you did:)

It was near Chinese New Year and we yearned for chinese food after eating many days of italian food...so we decided to try this restaurant that we practically next to our B&B. The dishes were decent and the owner was so kind!!! seeing we were chinese and that it was nearly CNY, he gave us free mandarin oranges after the dinner.. we were SO grateful! :) A feeling of home away from home, in a european country ^.^
The next day, i actually packed food to bring onto the train for lunch... fried rice! and i must say! the fried rice is really good!!! Worthy of a try if you miss chinese food :)

Ordered shark fin soup which was ok, other dishes like fried rice and noodles were also not bad. Prices ok, service was very quick. Soft drink glass were bigger than normal served in the area.
