Four adults, one child and three courses. What an evening, this is truly a five star establishment, only the gents toilets stopped me giving it full marks. From entering the premises the staff were ever so friendly and attentive and so glad we booked as it was busy even at 5.30 on a Saturday evening. The menu is extensive and... More

Love love love this place! It has become something of a regular place for me and my girlfriend to eat because the food and service is always wonderful 👌 The salt chilli wings are absolutely delicious. I would recommend this place to everyone as you will never be disappointed.

Our third visit and as good as ever. We book whenever we visit Blackpool as it is so very very busy especially at weekends. Service is fantastic, the owners and waitresses are so friendly. The chef even comes round to say hello and check how the meals were. Not much else to say except the food is fantastic and Sun... More

Food and service was awesome as ever. We come here twice a year on our holidays and are never disappointed. I don't think the additional tip on the bill will go down very well with most people tho. I always tip about £15 anyway as our orders are a little complicated but I could see some people not liking it.... More

Visited with family last Friday. Super friendly staff, great service. Food was amazing, fantastic all of it, we enjoyed all the food and the couple of pints of Sun Lik Chinese beer. We are back in Blackpool in January and my table is already reserved.

Food excellent, waitress really pleasant, but the overall experience was spoilt when requested chilli oil. We were told there is a charge. - Really? Yes for a tiny amount you pay £1. This is skimping beyond belief. Its like asking for extra vinegar in a chip shop and being charged. It's not the money as £1, but it obviously is... More

Thank you for your review. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed our service but sad to hear your experience was spoilt by a charge for chilli oil. As you mention we do charge for our chilli oil, this isn't because we're so keen to take an extra £1 from you but simply because of the cost and time involved to... More

When I saw how many people in the queue waiting for the restaurant to open I knew it must be good. Our family were celebrating my dads 70th birthday and we were so glad we booked a table which they had decorated with a couple of balloons and a banner so that was a lovely gesture. The service was very... More
