Three of us decided to call in after a couple of beers on Sunday evening. The windows were steamed up and, on entering, found the place to be pretty crowded, mostly with what appeared to be Chinese clientele. The decor is nothing to write home about but the food was fine. The menu is sectioned in to what could be... More

We are usually the only white couple in, so you know it's proper. Sweet and sour pork is off the chain

The food and sauces all tasted off or stale, the chicken wasn't cooked through and prawn crackers were stale. To top it all off found live insects crawling about in my food. Will never go here again it was an absolutely harrowing experience and nobody should ever have to eat this awful food and hazardous food again, and they should... More

I see this as more of a canteen than a restaurant. It is 100% Chinese and usually I am the only non Chinese customer when I go. There are over 90 items on the menu! But have found service is remarkably fast. There are vegetarian choices as well although only a few compared to the size of the menu. Duck,... More

We go to this restaurant quite often but were let down this time. We went on Tuesday 2nd August. They were very polite to us and sat down and ordered. Some prawn crackers were served but were a bit stale and chewy rather than crispy. When our order came they had substituted aubergine for tofu but had said we could... More

I visited on a Monday. After being sat and waiting for about 5 minutes had to ask for a menu. There was an offer but a special menu was thrust at me without explanation. The regular menu also contained offers, they weren't explained either. I was confused. I guessed how it worked, chose and waited to order.. and waited and... More

I entered a shabby restaurant with worn tablecloths. And my expectations weren't set very high. However I was pleasantly surprised after a wait for my food. I ordered the lunch menu. There's several menus, regular Chinese dishes, set menu at two prices. One was drink and mains. Or starter and mains. I ordered the crispy salt and pepper tofu, beef... More

Didn't expect too much looking at the exterior and interior, but was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the tofu satay skewers to start which were great and then 3 of us shared a vegetable hotpot, where you cook your own food in a, erm, hotpot. Great selection of sauces supplied on a trolley. We had 2 stocks to cook the food... More

We've eaten here 3 times and it's always delicious. Great price and very sweet servers. The regulars very often eat the large sharing hot pots which are totally divine.

Stopped in by chance one Saturday lunch - they had a set menu and I added another dish. The food was very good, nicely cooked, fresh and abundant ingredients - although I have eaten in more plush surroundings.
