“A good meeting place.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a great place to come if you're part of a group and want to be able to share across the large tables. The food is very tasty and well cooked, but sometimes the wait is lengthy. It is usually busy - such a good meal for a reasonable cost - and there is very limited staff as the owners are the chef and his wife front-of-house, with their son waiting as well on tables. In a group, with very cheap drinks, there is time to socialise while waiting, so not too much of a problem. You have to admire the very hard-working hostess and appreciate that they have continued this family tradition for many years because they keep staff costs down and offer the benefits to their clientele.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food is always delicious. Service is great. Been around for a number of years. Always good for a family as you sit at round tables, better for talking to everyone.

“Great food”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Been here many times - the food is great - however, we wont be back with Mum as she gets so fed up waiting for the food - annoys her immensely that the owner runs around trying to do everything with only her son on as help with the waitering ... does not matter if you book or not - always seems to be those two on. Would love to put an excellent as the food is always excellent but the long wait fo the food spoils the night for our Mum ...

“Dinner”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The food was good standard Chines menu. It is a huge barn of a place with giant photos of Hong Kong on the walls.
Don't be put off by the way it looks closed from the outside. They have heavy curtains that stop the light from showing on the street but there is an open sign on the door.
