Best chinese ever and everything is cooked from fresh. A little bit expensive but its def worth it and the service is 1st class. Sit in restaurant is quite small and sometimes you cant help but hear other diners conversations which can be quite awkward but not too bad. Very warm hospitality.

If you love Chinese food with a home cooked feel then look no further. The restaurant is small but very welcoming and has a lovely atmosphere. Brilliant ribs, scampi, and chicken wing starters. The scallops were perfectly cooked in a light sauce, honey chilli chicken soft and tender and the pieces of steak in a special sauce, terrific. A good wine list is also available. Lovely end with a small plate of fresh fruit to refresh the mouth. If you love your fish look no further as any dish we've tried has been cooked to perfection. Best Chinese food I've ever tasted.

I haven't been to this restaurant as often as I would like. The food especially the fish is tops. The service is great and never changes,the only downside is not enough space so not very private especially for a conversation.

Don't be put off by the unassuming exterior, this restaurant serves consistently brilliant food. Seafood is a speciality - fresh and perfectly cooked every time. The other meat dishes are also of the highest standard but I would recommend the scallops and turbot.

Staff are friendly. The only downside is that the restaurant can be a little cramped when busy.

We just needed something handy and chose The New Manly as there is a car park directly in front of it.We hadn't booked but it didn't look like that would have been neccessary...how wrong we were! As there was just the two of us the waitress got us a little corner table,but before we had ordered the tables started to fill up and within half an hour the place was full! Lovely food,great service and very reasonable too.
