Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff who always give a personal greeting. Great place to dine as a large family get together and no order is too much trouble for Suki who goes out of her way to cater for all tastes.

We were a party of 18 for a 80th Birthday celebration and Suki arranged a set menu for us all but accommodated those that needed slightly different food choices. The food was excellent, the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. She made fantastic birthday cake...More

Tasted like authentic home made Chinese cooking. Delivered to the door when taking a short break a Tregongeeves Farm Cottages in St Austell. Highly recommend for when you want a day off from cooking.
