Well what can we say?. Positives.. the rice was nice. We stopped here on the way back after a day out. The prices were fair. But the food was shocking. Not being local we looked at review's and they seemed good. But our experience was far from that. The noodles were over cooked and lacked taste. The prawn toast seemed... More

Takeaway arrived in good time. Food was hot, some dishes were passable but could have been better, unfortunately the Chop Suey was almost inedible - watery and no flavour, On the whole very disappointed and probably won't be ordering from here again.

Extremely poor on every level. My husband ordered a meal for ourselves from here. We often try new places and have had a meal from here once before. But on this occasion we were shocked by the quality and quantity of our meals. You expect to get your plastic square container to come filled or at the very least 3/4... More
