Had a takeaway from here tonight. The dishes were superb and tasty. Also it was ready on the dot and I didn't have to wait around. Obviously a popular venue as the restaurant part was full. Top marks.

We have had a takeaway from here a few times, and we haven't been disappointed. Lovely takeaway food not greasy at all. Friendly staff, responsible prices. Glad its just round the corner from us. Will definitely try the restaurant soon.

New family owners have turned this good local restaurant and takeaway into a fantastic one. Terrific service, food is always excellent when eating in or taking away. We've been there several times and can't recommend it enough.

The previous owners of this restaurant served excellent unique food to their recipes which were excellent. Very sad to see them go. Last night tried the new experience and while it wasn't the same, it was very good traditional Chinese. Very good service.
