“An excellent chinese with1st class service”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

The food is excellent and the views onto the River Bann are wonderful. The service is 1st class and i don't think staff anywhere are as attentive.

Wine is a little expensive in my opinion however it is worth it when eating here on special occasions.

Well worth trying here!!

“picturesque”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I have long wondered what this restaurant would be like but never ventured inside until last week.
We were greeted and shown to a table with courtesy and made feel welcome right from the entrance throughout our stay with staff introducing themselves and discreetly being on hand to respond without being overbearing.

Whilst the menu could be described as typical Chinese buffet the food itself was well prepared without the imposing salt taste that one can usually find in this type of establishment.

The restaurant is situated beside the River Bann and if you are on the river side of the building it is a quaint view however the other side is a main road which circles the town and therefore never really stops.

Given these points I would recommend that anyone who wants to try eating here gives it a go, they should enjoy the experience, however it is not a spot that I would run back to too often. special occasions only I think.

“Overpriced and limited menu (they offer European options-enough said)”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We had the set banquet for two, but this wasn't the best option as I felt that it was very overpriced and the options were limited. The service is very good here, however I think the atmosphere of the restaurant could be improved as it was very bright and almost like a canteen hall with so many tables crammed in.

I feel this restaurant is catered towards middle aged/elderly/families and people who want to say they are going out for Chinese food, but don't really know what proper Chinese food is or want to be eating authentic cuisine (they offer European dishes...grrrrr!!!! Boring :-( )

PS. They don't do crispy seaweed
