We will not be back. Booking was for a Sunday evening at 5pm. We were greeted as if we were a problem. More keen to push the wine list than the actual and we know why!!! The chowder was watery and not the hottest. My...More

We visited with our Chnese relatives from the US. They rated the restaurant highly for the quality of the food and the authentic ambience. Excellent food and attentive service. A great night out if you like very good Chinese food.

The food was very good, the atmosphere quite nice and quite well frequented. However I was seated upstairs away from any other customers--not by choice btw. The two servers were busy cleaning and setting tables but not perceptive enough to know a customer was ready...More

A modern take on a restaurant. The seating was comfortable and the service good once you had attracted a waiter/ess. I enjoyed my hot and sour soup but the prawn fried rice was so well oiled that it nearly slipped off my plate!! I doubt...More

Went for a Chinese takeaway for lunch , ended up waiting 40 minutes with not even an apology from the manager. Food was good but I'd go elsewhere for quicker service. Wasted my whole lunchtime waiting (and no dip for the cuttlefish cakes!).

This is a hidden gem of a Chinese restaurant. The quality of food being as good as any I've been to round the world. Excellent dim sum with a great variety of the tiny dumplings. And a very friendly staff.

One of the few places in Belfast that offer dim sum. Definitely recommend a visit for that, plenty on offer and all delicious. It's only available from 12-5pm, outside these times it's the usual asian takeaway fare- nothing too exciting. You have the option to...More

This restaurant has been around for a long time but has been extended and modernised over the years. There is now a large plate-glass window overlooking busy Botanic Avenue. Inside, there is a variety of seating and a balcony. We ate from the set price...More
