Visited here on a lunch date, heard great things. But unfortunately not so great when I went. Food wasn't great and was extremely over priced especially for processed chicken.

Attended 28 th Dec, food was nothing better than a dine in for 2 from marks and spencer. Bill was £430.35 which was scandalous for what we got and to add insult they asked for the 35 p. I gave them a 50 p and they had the cheek to ask if I wanted the change! Wouldn't recommend

Although we have visited Belfast many times, this was a first visit to HZ for us. We were the only family with younger children for an evening sitting, but were made to feel very welcome. Atmosphere was fabulous. Food was very good, although as with many similar restaurants, the starters felt like they had been there a while and were... More

We ate here for lunch before Christmas and the menu was limited to the Xmas menu. All the food was very good, staff were very busy. A good Chinese restaurant if you want better you would have to go to London.

It might say Asian but I see this as a top Chinese with so many unusual dishes. It really isn't a typical beef with black bean sort of a place For example, we had crispy lamb instead of crispy duck. Great main courses you won't find elsewhere. I love it & wish it was closer to home but if want... More
