“Had high hopes but food didn't match up”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner twice here recently.

First time was ok but very expensive for standard of food. €14.50 for main plus €4 extra for boiled rice. Not including rice in a Chinese restaurant I find very annoying and charging. €4 for it is excessive.

Main was ok but chicken was of poor quality i thought.

Thought I'd give it another go another night and was again underwhelmed. Value this time (early bird) was good and crispy duck was nice but didn't come with enough pancakes and if we wanted more that would be extra.

Mains were not good though.

Overall not great but maybe it will improve.

Service was fine.
