Went here on a Saturday night at 10pm and we thought seeing as it was still busy then it must be good. My food was the worst Chinese food I have ever eaten. It had no taste or flavour. It was just like eating rubbery chicken in dishwater. I'm never one to complain about food so for me to not... More

We popped in on a Thursday which was half priced dim sum. The ground floor restaurant was full so they opened upstairs for a couple of other people too waiting. Dim sum was fine as we kept it simple with har gow, sui mai, cheung fun, some prawn wontons and a pot of China Tea on a rainy day was... More

Lots of food, wine and beer for two people, £70. Can't complain about anything in particular but nothing was exciting either. Picked it on a rainy Monday night as it was the first place we saw when the taxi stopped.

Ate here with a group from work mainly because someone wanted to sit at one of those tables with a round spinning thing in the middle and this indeed has such things! I thought it looked quite promising when we arrived, as a number of tables were occupied by groups evidently of Chinese origin, which is usually a good recommendation/endorsement.... More

We came for my mum and dad's wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. Great food, great service and a peaceful atmosphere. Unless I have different expectations, I really can't understand the negative reviews on here. Worth a visit to make up your own minds!

Years ago I ate here a few times and I remembered it as good_ I am sorry to say it has changed and not for the better. The starter _ a mixed platter, was missing items listed on the menu , which was not mentioned by the staff, the items which were served were largely rehashed, reheated, over cooked and... More

Waited around half an hour for service, in a very quiet restaurant, drinks were very obviously watered down and served in dirty glasses. Food came out very separated and mostly cold, with little to no taste and none of it being particularly nice, also very over priced for what you receive. Staff weren't helpful or friendly and then they also... More

Waited 30vminutes to be served drinks, in a dirty glass, table who came in after we're served before us, food was very poor. Waiting staff gave dirty looks, barely spoke was unhelpful when we asked questions. Food came out cold, no one came to check on us or our food. Then a service charge was added Would not recommend.

We thought that choosing a restaurant in China town that we would get a good chinese meal. We were a little disappointed. It was a Saturday evening, so it was very full but we didn't need to wait for a table. We did not have a problem with our service, but we heard complaints of random meal delivery from ajoining...

So disappointed, we must have went to the most through other restaurant in China town. Bad enough that the food was bland and cold but to have it practically thrown at us by what has to be the rudest waiter I've ever encountered! Service was ad hoc, meals coming out one at a time. While there a large party of... More
