Nothing to much but a lovely gesture. Staff were absolutely amazing. On hand whenever you needed them and engaged with you effortlessly. Food was fantastic. Authentic and high quality.... More

This a charming and popular restaurant - bookings are required as plenty of people were being turned away during the course of our meal. We did the set menu that they offer for early evening and this gave ample choice. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals but I think I was most pleased with my Cantonese style sliced beef,...

We were recommended this Chinese restaurant and it was fabulous. Very busy place but you don't feel like your being rushed. Lots to choose from the menu and it was all fantastically presented and well as the taste. Could not fault anything! Thank you for a wonderful meal. A credit to your staff and service.
