“BEST CHINESE IN ST HELENS”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I and two friends called in for a meal on Saturday. Overall it is a nice place to eat, but I have one very big complaint. I find it very difficult to climb stairs, and since there are a lot of stairs to climb you would think they would have a working lift. I have been on a few occasions and was very disappointed to find it does not. It seems the lift is purely for decoration. I was very embarrassed because my party had to wait for me to ascend and descend. When you ask the staff they don't want to know. Top tip. Get the lift in working order please

“Best Chinese Buffet in Merseyside”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Absolutely fantastic value typical buffet prices, restaurant quality food. Have everything you could possibly imagine from a dim sum bar serving ham bows and steamed sui mai, to roasted char sui pork and roasted duck. There is so much choice here, with the tepanyaki bar, soup bar and pancake bar and chocolate fountain there is something for everyone. Food is really delicious nice and fresh and constantly replenished. Restaurant is big and yet despite it's size is not too noisy and tables aren't packed in together. Service was excellent staff were lovely and friendly.

Really enjoy this restaurant.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Had a very enjoyable evening. Seated in a booth quite close to the food area. There was a vast choice of dishes, starters mains and desserts. Tables were cleared regularly by waiters, table service for drinks was excellent. I would highly recommend a visit, we are booked in again and taking friends!

“Chinese Excellence”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

A great value restaurant, we went mid week evening for £12.99 per head plus drinks. Massive selection of Chinese foods, all kept hot and constantly topped up. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive; as soon as you plate was empty it was removed ready for your next indulgent dip into a plethora of mouth watering delights.
On the down side it can get noisy due to the hard floor and open plan layout also the plates, although on a warming dispencer needed to be hotter. Tip: This can be done oneself by leaving on the steam food warmers for a few seconds.
