Have eaten here many times over the years. Moved away but now back and decided to have a takeaway. It was terrible. Tasteless and full of gristle and cheap tasting chicken. Add to this some thoroughly miserable staff, it's not what it used to be. I hear Jo and the older gent have left - shame. Such a good restaurant... More

Used this Cantonese for years when we lived in lincoln, back from Hampshire tonight and decided on a quick takeaway, 2 chow mien chicken, awful, no taste, chicken slimey, worst I have tasted, absolute waste of money! This used to be the best in Lincoln, in my view not anymore, only 2 table taken in restaurant, now I know why!

We found the staff to be excellent and attentive. My wife is not a Chinese food fan and didn't enjoy the food, preferring Indian cuisine. We went for Meal B and the starter was crispy, oily with a minute lump of prawn in the middle. The main picked up and I found the prawns cooked to perfection. The duck a... More

I have never been here before and I really don't know how it gets so many good reviews. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful - but the food was the sort you would get from the worst, Chinese takeaway. The spring rolls weren't bad and we were looking forward to a decent main course but the chicken was... More

Ordered takeaway from here previously which has been amazing... Saturday's was awful to be honest. Delivery driver was very rude, and the food was nowhere near it's usual standard. Very very disappointed - for the price.

Booked a room earlier in the day, but still a few empty tables, so didn't necessarily need to book. There were a couple of hen/birthday parties so the atmosphere was nice, but not too lively! The food was excellent, the service great and the price reasonable. Visitors to Lincoln, but would definitely use again if we were in Lincoln.
