We went as a family group to celebrate a birthday and were not dissappointed. The food was great and lots of it, and the service was excellent. Although I will continue to recommend this restaurant I do think their prices have crept up quite a lot, but apart from a takeaway they are the only real Chinese in the town.... More

My husband and I visited last weekend. The restaurant was busy and we went quite early in the evening however the service was excellent. The staff are always very friendly and there is a welcoming atmosphere. They do a lot of takeaways and deliveries but have sufficient cooking staff to ensure that the restaurant service does not suffer. There is... More

Myself and my family have been eating here for sometime now. The food is good, the service excellent, very attentive, they genuinely really enjoy what they do. And if its a celebration, watch out, one of the guys is very likely to pick up his guitar and sing you a song! If you fancy a selection, go in a group... More

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The experience from start to finish was an absolute delight. I celebrated my wedding anniversary on 22.03.17. The set meal was delicious especially the sizzling prawns dish. The restaurant is clean, welcoming and one of the best restaurants in Basingstoke. I would certainly recommend booking if you are planning... More

I am a Chinese food lover, and probably had high expectations when visiting. Unfortunately the food was average, my quest to find a good Chinese restaurant in the area continues.

Tried for 5 minutes but no answer when ordering a takeaway. Finally ordered and told it would take 30 minutes. I arrived early for collection but in total it took 45 minutes. I had to go up to the counter to chase up my order and was told "here it is, it's just arrived". When I got home (just over... More

Long established non- chain restaurant serving excellent Chinese cuisine. The service is always very good and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. When you book, as it is advisable to as they are a busy place to eat, they always ask is it a special occasion and if so and you would like it they put up balloons and... More

We often celebrate family birthdays here. Good choice, good value and friendly staff. They always put birthday balloons on the table. It's a regular venue and highly recommended by all the extended family.
