Had the 2 course special for£14.95 I think and thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent mixed starter and good choice of main course. One of the better eateries in Blackpool.

We arrived at 5.30 as was going to theatre afterwards and was the only ones in there for about 5 minutes then it got busier and busier - defo recommend booking!

Nice welcome as we came in, unfortunately once sat upstairs the service wasn't always brilliant, just a little more eye contact adds to the experience. The starter (spare ribs)came out pretty soon and to be fair was very nice. The main came out soon after and was a little disappointing, bland, watery and tasted rather oily and the chicken (i...

Upon entering, warm welcome from a female waitress. Shortly after we were sat upstairs. The staff upstairs didn't engage with us at all throughout, when paying we had the card machine passed to us without even eye contact!! The starter, satay chicken, very bland with very little taste. Main, Beef chow mein, again lacking in taste, meat had no texture.... More

Four adults, one child and three courses. What an evening, this is truly a five star establishment, only the gents toilets stopped me giving it full marks. From entering the premises the staff were ever so friendly and attentive and so glad we booked as it was busy even at 5.30 on a Saturday evening. The menu is extensive and... More

Hi John, Thanks for your review - the best Chinese food ever - high praise indeed!! :-) We understand your point about our gens toilet but it was in fact refurbish three years ago at the same time as the rest of the restaurant, it is done in the style of a 1940's tram station, hence the old-style green and...

Love love love this place! It has become something of a regular place for me and my girlfriend to eat because the food and service is always wonderful 👌 The salt chilli wings are absolutely delicious. I would recommend this place to everyone as you will never be disappointed.

Food and service was awesome as ever. We come here twice a year on our holidays and are never disappointed. I don't think the additional tip on the bill will go down very well with most people tho. I always tip about £15 anyway as our orders are a little complicated but I could see some people not liking it.... More
