Great Chinese food in a lovely family atmosphere - have been going for years and still our number one Chinese in the area. Food always delicious and staff always friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Visited recently with family, as it was late, we had made no bookings and just wanted something easy.

Food was good quality and well presented. Sure it wasnt the most imaginative but it was what I call 'Old Skool Chinese', like you used to get in the 70's and 80's :-)

Good value also. Recommended.

Well what can I say. The service was good but the food was terrible as every thing seemed to be deep fried. The sweet and sour chicken was like a bullet, rice had no flavour and god knows what they put in our other dishes, they tasted like fairy liquid. This is typical eat as much as you like food but at restaurant prices (and it isn't eat as much as you like). We certainly won't be going back.

I feel bad about giving this place such a poor review as the staff were lovely and friendly but it really was the worst Chinese Ive ever had, and I honestly eat anything!
The restaurant itself is pretty small with only about 8 tables and is terribly shabby- peeling wallpaper, broken and damaged chairs, faded and ripped decor. It was roughly half full but I got the feeling that most of the diners were regulars.
The food was very bog-standard chinese takeaway quality, nothing special and most of our dishes tasted odd in some way or another. My crispy chilli beef was cloyingly sweet and the special fried rice looked like it had been bought from Iceland supermarket for a pound! We all ended up leaving most of our meals and feeling very disappointed as we absolutely love chinese food and this was just so far off the mark and most certainly not 'restaurant quality' food.
We'll stick to our local takeaway in future and continue our search for a decent Chinese restaurant in Thanet...anyone have any recommendations?!
