We ordered a banquet meal for two which consisted of four courses plus the prawn crackers that were waiting for us when we were shown to our table. The crispy duck was very good, the soup quite unpleasant and a couple of the main dishes were a 'bit average'. They were well cooked, looked and smelled nice but just didn't live up to expectations. We skipped the final course but there is a good choice on the desert menu although they looked like the standard frozen deserts you get in many Chinese restaurants. The décor and service was very good, the prices reasonable.

I am a nightmare to please when it comes to Chinese food and when we relocated to the area I worried as usual. We went for a meal here and the food was delicious, the mixed starter plate for two are a must.

The restaurant is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful! Love it!

Had a lovely Friday night meal here with my husband. The cream of chicken soup is home made, and to die for. Also the prawn crackers are simply the best I've ever tasted. Could do with air conditioning as it's too hot there in this weather. Otherwise a lovely meal. Two soups, and two soft drinks, 2 mains. £35. Staff are pleasant and industrious. It's a beautiful restaurant.

What a surprise at the end of a very good meal, a discount of £10 to beat off local competition no doubt. Very nice meals.
