Ignore the dubious review below it doesn't reflect this restaurant. Arrived about 8pm on a Saturday night. As with the other bars and restaurants in the area, surprisingly quiet. We were warmly greeted and asked for the wine menu. None of the red wine was available but I was presented with 3 bottles of South African wine and chose the... More

Nice , relaxing atmosphere with great service . We went for some drink and snacks , enjoyed the breeze from the terrace . No matter you plan to have a proper meal or just sit down and have some Chinese tea or beer , this is a good place to go .

The menu is very varied and offers plenty of dishes, from various cuisines. Maybe too many choices ? I mean, I dont think you can really be an expert in Sichuan food as well as dishes from Bejing, Shanghai etc. Anyway, we had a tasty and not expensive lunch here. It was good, but not amazing, and very good value... More

Good food and they serve alcohol. Good and quick service and a nicer atmosphere than I expected given the location in a plaza. Near the Rovers Return so combines well with a pre or post dinner pint! Plenty of veggie options and not too expensive.

The decoration of the restaurant is fine. The food however is anything but Chinese; it tastes more like food served at hospitals (not salted, no spices) it is as if they boiled the dish in water without adding any spices then served you with that. Im positive Im not going back to that restaurant.

Thank msq002
