If you want something that won't excite or offend your taste buds, then this is the place. It's not great, but it's not awful either.

Good big portions and free wifi. Reasonably priced drinks. Any time I passed it was always busy so that's a good sign, it didn't disappoint.

Over all average experience. Took quite a while before our order was taken, infact we waiting longer for them to take the order than wait on the actual food to be cooked, so it suggested to us that none of it was cooked freshed. There wasnt anything special about our meal. The chocolate fudge cake, was just a chocolate cake.... More

As we arrived (we hadn't pre-booked), the restaurant was very busy. We were escorted to a pleasant room where we had a drink. After 15 minutes, our table was ready and we were sat in a fine location, overlooking the restaurant and the River Foyle. We were greeted by the waitress and, after ordering another drink, we chose a starter... More

Delightfully appointed and quintessential Chinese Restaurant, overlooking the River Foyle. Superb menu, very well prepared and presented food, outstanding service and lovely, attentive staff. Great value for money but book early!

Very friendly and helpful staff but the most horrendous food I have experienced in a long time - spring rolls tasted unpleasant and the main course was just the worst I have ever had. THe food here gives you a worse hangover than drink I dread to think what is in it - best avoided!
