The title says it all. This place does nice Chinese style food at good prices. The staff are pleasant and very attentive. Decor does need to be improved. Not my first time here and not my last.

Staff were very accommodating. We had a longer than normal wait on our food and staff apologised offering us complementary drinks. Would definately go back.
