“Very quiet on a weekday, but nice food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Went for a meal when on business with a colleague. There was only one other table with diners, but not unusual for a Tuesday. Service was excellent (the blond waitress did well to not get bored and was very attentive), and the food good (but nothing spectacular). If you like Chinese, you'll like it here. If you don't, you won't.

“Food very enjoyable”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I am not a lover of Chinese food but this restaurant could easily convert me. I have been twice in the last 6 weeks, the last visit we had a set menu. Chinese hors d'oeuvres (ribs, chicken in a wonderful batter etc), followed by duck pancakes, then fillet steak cantonese (there was a good choice of main course). I couldn't manage a sweet as I was full, the price was £25 a head. Although restaurant was busy, service was good. Will return.

“Take away awful”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We last had a take away from here several years ago before it's re-furbishment - it was very poor. We thought we'd give it another try two nights ago.
One of us had pork with ginger and spring onions. Nearly all the pork was tough and some was inedible(the birds liked it though!).
The other dish was lemon chicken, always good here before. This was stringy and very sparse.
We shall not be giving it another chance.
We did ring up and tell the restaurant but there was no suggestion of another dish or a freebie next time!1
