Food is always delicious here. Clean facilities. The best Chinese in Portsmouth. Some employees could offer better customer service but this does not stop me from returning regularly as the food is so amazing!

This was a lunch time visit, set menu. Great value for money, 3 courses and a drink for under £8 a head. OK Set menu means a limited choice, but the food was delivered quickly, freshly cooked, with good service. The restaurant was fairly busy 12.30 on a Thursday which is also a good sign. Shredded chicken starter was described... More

Returned there with a friend for an evening meal and yet again was not disappointed; generous portions, freshly cooked, hot and tasty; I can't fault the service either. Looking forward to visiting again, next time we are down that way.

We come to this restaurant fairly frequently and always find the food to be top quality, and the service good. Their lunch set menu is good value for money too.

The food is amazing, some of the best Chinese food I've eaten. Occasionally there is a slight language barrier with the waiting staff but they've always been friendly. It doesn't look much from the outside but you will not regret a visit after tasting the quality of the food.

Have eaten here a couple of times and personally I rate it as average. My girlfriend loves it. Booked a table for 7 pm and was told we would have to wait 10 minutes despite being courteously on time and the place being half full. Having been offered no option of drinks or seating. I enquired should I wait inside... More

We went here as a recommendation and it was definitely well recommended!!! There were 15 of us and the restaurant was full, mostly Chinese eating, the food was hot and obviously cooked fresh as it came out as it was cooked! Everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ate and they were happy to give us containers for the... More

Really enjoyed dinner here - ate midweek and a few tables were occupied, mostly by Chinese people which I took as a good sign. The menu has quite a few vegetarian dishes including the vege duck with pancakes that I chose. Delicious, good value and great service.

Popped in for set lunch (£6.90 for three courses). I chose spare ribs which were tender with delicious sauce, followed by Singapore Noodles. Finished with crisp banana fritters and syrup. Service was quick and efficient.
