A very good Chinese restaurant - without it being too Anglicised. We really enjoyed our meal, which was an array of Chinese treats. It was very nice, though nothing remarkable. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and ambiance, with romantic lighting, and the service is good. The restaurant itself is quite pricey - especially when deviating from the set menu!

We enjoyed a wonderful set meal at this award winning restaurant. Well worth eating here. It surpassed all other Chinese meals we had ever had.

The best thing about this restaurant is the interior design and layout. However, the menu is very unique and at times confusing. We ordered a range of dishes and nothing stood out as great. The worst thing we ordered was a chicken dish in hoi-sin sauce. It was some of the worst chicken i've ever had, i'm not even too... More

popped in for a quick bite the other day - to be frank, I was curious that so many young people I know make this a favoured haunt. Anyway, delightful place, courteous staff and welcoming, too. I enjoyed a vegetarian curry which was a very tasty creation of various infrequent vegetables. It was inexpensive, too. I'll be back soon, to... More

We went at Lunch time and ordered off the lunch time special menu. It was £10 each for 2 starters and a main. The food was freshly prepared and tasted amazing. I would visit again as the food was so good.

Visited on a very busy Saturday lunchtime and no tables when we arrived with family including a pram. 20 minute wait in pleasant seating area before being shown to a large table with plenty of room for the pram. Large choice of tasty food and excellent value at £10 per head for 3 courses. All staff very polite and very... More

Had a wonderful meal here. Ordered far too much food as thought portions were small but they are very big. The starter platter for two was delicious and I followed this with crispy chilli squid and sea bass cooked in chillis, while my son had stir fried noodles with duck. I thought the spicy fish would be unbearably extra spicy... More

Met up with friends at this large airy Chinese restaurant. The green glass partition walls give it a modern feel and slighty different to your normal Chinese decor.Staff were friendly and efficient and we never felt rushed. Food was as you always get in these places the starters are great and the mains always disappoint slighty, or is that just... More

We had the 'Courtship Menu' and it was never ending. Cannot fault the value for money. The courses just kept coming. The food was hot and tasted amazing. Ordered a side dish of the Jellyfish out of curiosity. The team there were friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend and return there.

Thank rht223
