We live locally to this Chinese restaurant so visit fairly regularly. With the exception of Saturday night which is a la carte, all other nights offer a fresh order buffet, currently £15.95 for adults. There is a wide choice from the buffet menu which you can order from as many times as you like and it's cooked and presented freshly... More

We had Chinese last night for our New Year's Eve celebrations, and we're very disappointed! We ordered 2 kitchen specials which had next to no meat in and no sauce. The chips were extremely dry, you could hardly swallow. Thank goodness for the cans of cola, which were about the only decent thing about the meal. After phoning to make... More

Came here last night for a friend's birthday meal and as it was the first time of visiting here, I was pleasantly surprised as I had read some of the reviews which were negative. The food was very good and tasty and plenty of it. Also the service was excellent and very attentative. Will return when in the area.

Buffet style Chinese ,fixed price and eat as much as you like. Food quality is what you would expect and no real complaints. We were a large group and the menu suited everyone. Service was okay and drinks prices were reasonable. Worth a try

We booked a table for four on a Friday night at 7pm for "eat all you can". The service was so slow that by 8.30pm we had only had one lot of starters without being cleared and another order being taken. The food was average when it finally did arrive and by the time we left at 10pm we had... More

Ordered a take away from here for the family whilst on holiday at carylon bay. The curries were bland and disappointing. The vegetable dish especially wasn't nice at all...very watery sauce and raw veg. The chips were also pretty bad, possibly just been left in a bag and became hard. The highlight were the prawn crackers which were free with... More
