For an early Valentine’s treat my partner and I decided to visit Little Buddha, proving our love for one another by eating a grotesque amount of food and showing others that love really is blind. I'm pleased to say that the restaurant has had a refurb since I last visited (but that must've been 2+ years ago) and that the... More

I came here for the first time, had their express lunch which was a starter and a main with rice for £6.90. the waitress was friendly and the atmosphere pleasant. A little gem in a dump of a high street. Would definitely come here again for lunch.

As Pilgrim House had closed its doors (they really needed to). I wanted to find an authentic Chinese restaurant. I have been here about two years ago. We were pleasantly surprised with staff who greeted us nicely and I noticed they had changed the decor of the place. The food was lovely, it wasn't hot but warm. On reflection we... More

A basic cheap quick lunch - starter and one main dish with rice but at a good price. Quick lunch menu has a reasonable selection for choice. Service friendly. Only one other table in use when I was there, so quiet.

Then 1 main and 1 side, and this can continue until you... More

As I walked through the doors I could see that the placed had been refurbished and we were met by pleasant staff. The place was... More

Came here with a Groupon and we were pleasantly surprised. Platter for starters was excellent with really tasty ribs and spring rolls. The peking duck wasn't greasy and really fresh pancakes. Noodles and rice were spot on and main dishes infused with chillies and ginger. Reasonable drink prices too. Friendly and professional service. Highly recommended.
