My husband and I took our two boys (5yrs and 2yrs) here last Friday for lunch. We were very dubious after the reviews I read but have to say it was a pleasant surprise. We booked our table for 12pm and when we arrived we were greeted with a friendly face and a smile. None of the food was yet out so we ordered drinks, it's £3 for an unlimited top-up on coke, lemonade, fizzy orange etc the waitress kindly offered to charge for just one unlimited drink for the boys to share which was split into two half pint glasses which was great. The food came out quite quickly and there was a fair amount of choice. There weren't any king prawn or duck dishes but we only paid £6.99 per adult and £3.99 per child but still had plenty of choice with chicken, beef and pork dishes. The dessert choice was a bit more limited with a selection of three cakes, jelly, banana fritters and a choice of vanilla, strawberry or chocolate ice cream but the boys were more than happy. It was their first experience of a Chinese meal which they enjoyed. There is a £3 charge for food wastage which we weren't charged as my youngest only left a few noodles. Also if a child is over 140cm tall they will be charged as an adult. All-in-all if you are looking for a good value Chinese then this is the place. Even if you have one dish it's worth the money. We will be going to eat there again in the future.

Went on a Tuesday night as a large group. When we entered food looked dry but we sat whilst other diners took what was there and fresh was brought out. We live near a good takeaway so would say food no better than that but it was good and tasty. £3 charge for excess waste. What to do with prawn shells and rib bones? Waitress friendly and cleared used plates swiftly. We did not reuse them for hygiene purposes. Would return but pick a busy night to ensure good turnover of food.

Stopped here for lunch on a weekday. Quite a few people in and a good selection of food available (although the selection in the evening seems better) Ate our fill of fresh hot food and had a pint of Chinese lager. Value for money for what it is, have recommended.
