We try to visit this fantastic family run Chinese restaurant every time we are visiting family back in the UK. I grew up with this restaurant, and have been coming back here time and again for over 40 years. It must habe been open for at least 50! Some of the furnishings are at least as old as me, but the food and the service is first class. They have started updating some items, like the menus, but the table warmers are antiques. Very clean, and very reasonably priced. Will continue coming back for another 40 years.

Visited on the recommendations from trip advisor on a Saturday evening. The restaurant itself was very busy with advance booking recommended to avoid any disappointment.

The decor internally is extremely dated. Possibly stuck circa 1987. However don't let that detract. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.

The service was second to none, very attentive and courteous, the staff even took our jackets and hung them.

There's nothing too exciting on the menu. again rather dated. Everything is down from the carpet the seating to the plates and food warmers.

We went for beef chow mien a sizzling beef platter and boiled rice dishes. Again the order to eat time was not long at-all. In fact around just 10mins and that's with a busy restaurant. The place is well used which i guess isn't a bad thing.

Taste wise then i didn't detect anything spectacular, in fact rather bland, plain. Regular.

Not sure what else the town has to offer so i probably wouldn't return and for the fact that the decor is dated and the food airing on the tasteless side so i have no choice really but to rate as distinctly average overall.

The place needs a total revamp, decorate update modernize and that includes the menu too.

If you do try, you wont be disappointed as long as you aren't expecting 5 star. Go on, enjoy it for what it is. Plain and simple Chinese food.

Only been here the once. Menu could do with changing a little, and the service was a little rushed.

Generally a pleasant visit but wouldnt rush back.

Went to this place after looking on Trip Advisor when in the area, certainly wasn't disappointed. The decor was dated, but made for a far better atmosphere than some of these new buffet "canteens" that are popping up everywhere. The service was spot on and the food was fresh, tasty and really well cooked, hard to fault the place. Worth a visit if your after good food at a good price.
