Took my family, including two kids 9 & 11 for their first Chinese restaurant meal... They absolutely loved it. Highly recommended.

Super fast service. All food came out piping hot. Everyone loved their various dishes. Particular highlights were the chilli garlic beef, and the chicken black bean sauce. Amazing value for money. Will be back again next year- possibly more than once!
