“Lovely food and friendly staff”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Great selection of dishes, especially if you have a veggie in your group. The food was tasty and portions good. The staff were very friendly and service was good. Only niggle was the price of the omelettes- our wee one had a plain omelette and it was about £8.

“Amazing Chinese food, friendly staff.”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Visit here all the time for meals and takeaways. Yet to have a bad meal or takeaway here so I see that as a good sign with 50+ visits.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We had a takeaway from here, after a recommendation from a local. We were very disappointed! At least the staff were very friendly (as was almost every Shetlander we met on our holiday), and the prices were reasonable for a main town/tourist area - I think the mains were around £7.80 each. It was noticeable there were not many diners eating there that night.

We ordered a chicken fried rice - and when we opened it at home we almost threw it straight out. There was no sign the rice had been fried - it just looked boiled and tired. The chicken was so disgusting my husband refused to eat it - it was very pale, limp and appeared steamed rather than fried. Yuck........... We also had a portion of sweet and sour chicken and the sauce seemed a generic, commercial and brightly coloured one rather than home made - and was very sweet. I can say the curry sauce was scrummy - but a wee portion compared to what we are used to getting elsewhere.

Overall, I would miss this place out - we later ate a meal in the Great Wall - and it was really delicious, a mile away from this food. We noted with concern since we returned home that at present this restaurant has failed its food hygiene certificate - perhaps check an update on that before you go there?

Reviewed May 23, 2013

good quality Thai food, relaxed atmosphere, we went early in the evening as we were told it was very popular and in Shetland you have limited choices of where to eat.
