“rushed service, good food, good value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

we booked a table in advancce for a birthday meal was told it was okay to stay until we was ready to leave ,however on the night as we was just siting down at 7.20, we was already being told that the table was needed at 8.45,and was being rushed into ordering food and drinks and were then being told again that they were worried about needing the table ,we considerd this quite rude as how can you know how long it will take you to eat your meal ! should not rush custom out the door....

“Great place for lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a lovely and cosy restaurant. Styled like many Asian restaurants, most notably like that of Wagamama's, the tables are generally all grouped together/very close to one another, creating a relaxed atmosphere. The food is well priced and the portions very good. If I was to have one criticism, it would be that they are more interested in speed than quality, as you usually get your order in just 5minutes, so not sure how fresh it all is, but it is still tasty and great value for money, so makes for a nice lunch time restaurant, as you will easily be in and out within the hour!

Dear PersianPrince77

As most lunch breaks are limited to an hour, we aim to provide a fast service to fit within the working lunch. All our dishes are cooked to order by different chefs.
Thank you for your valued review.

“good value and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is by far the best noodle bar in this area and the prices are better and the food is tastier (and more authentic) than wagamama. The place is always busy but the food is quick. A couple of minor suggestions - the plates should be warmed through before service and the toilets need some attention. But the food is really very very good.

Lovely food, lovely restaurant, good busy vibe but 2 unisex toilets which really are dirty with urine over the floor, really surprised this is allowed. Come on king du, sort it out its putting people off, and surprised its allowed!

Dear datsuns,
Having received your review, another toilet had been installed just after the disable toilet only for men and the first toilet is now female & disable use only. Our last toilet is unisex but we do maintain an hourly toilet check. I hope this will address your concerns. Thank you very much for your review.
