Nice meal of sweet and sour chicken with rice, chicken in garlic and chilli with mushrooms and fried rice, prawn toast. Tasty and not too heavy. Served very quickly, and very friendly, efficient staff. They did spoil it somewhat when we were asked to leave a tip. This really is not acceptable etiquette and makes the customer feel pressured and... More

Nice friendly atmosphere. The service is quick even though the restaurant can get very busy. We had the chicken sweet corn soup (very nice), salt and pepper squid (very disappointing), crispy duck (very nice), chicken in ginger spring onion and the prawn in ginger spring onion (very nice). We asked for two sides chips and yang chow fried rice. Unfortunately... More

We didn't book but, as we arrived quite early, we managed to get a table. Filled up later, so wouldn't have been as lucky. Nice, bustling atmosphere and the food was good. Large choice on the menu and we had a bottle of fairly priced wine too. Especially nice chicken and sweetcorn soup. Would go again.

Came here after walking past earlier in the evening - and being tempted in by the nice smell of Chinese wafting out. We chose the spare ribs in OK sauce, and the prawn toast for starters. A large plate of prawn toast - very nice. Some of the best we've tasted. As for the spare ribs though - very very... More

Had a meal last night as the missus wanted to go. I have had many Chinese takeaways over my past 54 years but this as my first one in a resturant was disappointing to the point it's put me off trying one again. The food came out far too quickly to be freshly cooked, the rice was the best thing... More

We ordered a takeaway for two and although your staff were all lovely when we came and waited with a drink however the food was pretty poor Golden Fortune. Our crispy duck was not in the slightest bit crispy which was really unpleasant and fatty this way, egg foo yung was pretty inedible and it just altogether not very nice.... More

Second time eating here, this time we had the happy hour menu. There was a varied choice of main course served with rice after the usual tasty starters.Good value, tasty food and quick service.

Whilst visiting my eldest daughter and her very long-term partner that lives in Windermere myself and travelling companion/long-time friend rounded off the evening with a visit to their local hostelry and then on to have a late evening meal. The initial impression was that the restaurant was exceptionally clean and well laid out with ample room to move between tables... More

We were staying at Fallbarrow Park and as this was our last night decoded on a Chinese meal. I had passed this restaurant earlier so we got a taxi and off we went. From the moment we entered we had very good attentive service. The food was extremely good. My hubby had sweet n sour chicken and I had the... More
