Ordered a starter to share which was nice. The main was lemon chicken and aromatic duck. We both tried the lemon chicken. Which looked amazing, but it was hard in the middle and crunchy to chew, definitely not right. It was as if a frozen chicken breast had been deep fried and was solid in the middle. I told the...

A friend suggested we went here for a meal, as he had been and couldn't say enough how good it was. We were not disappointed. From the warm welcome, to the fantastic food and service, nothing was too much. Would highly recommend

We went for a family Sunday lunch buffet, it's a comfortable atmosphere, until you join the queue for the food which is laid out on a six foot table, the plates on our table were what we would use as a side plate which are used to collect your own food, the queue is like a conga dance line, on...

It's been 10 years since we last visited, and it hasn't changed a bit. The staff were wonderful and the food was excellent with a good variety of choice on the menu. The decor hasn't changed either but don't let this put you off; it is clean, fresh and in keeping with a Chinese style restaurant.

3rd or 4th visit here. Always good. Typical U.K. Chinese food - but better quality that a take away. Worth a visit. My daughter loves it.
