The building is Chinese style. Lots of parking space. Inside, it looked quite run down. We had mix of dishes to share. The ' Ants a tree' were ok, lettuce leaves you fill with different fillings and eat as a little wrap. The main courses were really bad, I don't know where to start.... we had a range again. Rice,...

I should have taken heed of the previous and most recent reviews! The food here is the worst I have ever had and I have travelled the world. Apparently this used to be an icon but the only indication of this is the building itself. The meat is of extremely poor quality, full of gristle and tasteless. The oil used... More

Worst Chinese food ever!!!!! Food is terrible. Extremely disappointed. Ordered fried rice and chicken and I am given oily rice with pieces of chicken skin! Name should be changed from Hong Kong... insulting.

Regardless of the upgrades done recently to furnishings, which was well overdue, and still the upgrades are not to standard. I have been visiting this place at least twice a month for last 40 years, yes "40 Years" food standard has recently been going downhill. I can tell that the quality of ingredients (especially meats) is really substandard. Nowdays you... More

As stated previously owner comes across as quite intimidating standing behind the bar surveying all that he owns. Staff are treated as servants, undermining them by snapping his fingers in an aggressive manner to attend to customers before they've even walked through the door. Food was at best okay, ordered chicken & almonds with plain rice and my colleague had... More

This place was so much more than I had expected. The food was amazing - better than most places I've sampled in England, no goop in sight. Going against recommendation, my friends and I ordered 4 mains and a large rice, and crackers (3 mains would have been sufficient) but it was so good I didn't care how full I... More

we have eaten in a few times and taken away twice. the food has been quite good and pretty authentic which was a nice. the only disconcerting thing is the owner at the bar who we caught yelling horrible things at his poor floor staff, we have always caught him in a terrible mood, it gives off a bad vibe-...

A big favourite with my kids who like the wide range of Chinese food on offer. Service is always good and food tasty, usually arriving quickly. 'Non-Chinese food' is available and there are take away options too. Not too busy when we went on Wednesday night.

Great food, friendly staff, Hours are not always convenient but it's worth waiting for them to open. Great Sweet and Sour Chicken.
