Food is very tasty and gluten free options are excellent. Only problem is that is a little pricey as a takeaway. Anything over £25 gives you a 10% discount and allows you to use a debit card without extra charges. My meal came to £24.80: they did not allow me to pay by card and I had to pay the... More

I had heard good things but the Signature Banquet was below par, with bland food cooked either too much (meat) or not enough (potato). If this is their showcase selection I'm afraid I wont be returning for a repeat performance.

Then we had a platter with ribs, spring rolls etc followed by duck and pancakes. The mains followed sweet and sour chicken and beef... More

The food on the while was very nice, although it was expensive....the biggest let down was the ribs, they had zero meat on... More

Went here recently with my friend for lunch. Chose a banquet at £25 a head. Soup was okay but I had to pay extra for sweet and sour instead of Chicken and sweecorn - not a good start. Prawn crackers had an oily aftertaste, only had a couple. The spare ribs were overcooked, no fleshy meat at all. The crispy... More

Visited for a full banquet with 9 friends and enjoyed the meal. Pity you don't get a free mug with the current Chinese animal of the year on it anymore.
