We have been coming to this restaurant since the week it opened which must be over 25 years ago. We have never had a bad experience here....ever! Our most recent visit was a birthday celebration with 8 guests, as always the service is quick, friendly and efficient. The a la carte menu is in my opinion the one to go... More

The overall experience of being in this place was dire from the outset. I don't say that lightly - I write hundreds of reviews and like to point out the good points in restaurants which are worthy but here I could find none. We ordered two starters. The first was chicken satay. Never have I ever seen this deep fried... More

We ordered drinks and started to look at the menu. There is a great deal of choice to choose... More

Been going here for over 20 years, always excellent food and fantastic service. I have been to many Chinese restaurants around the UK and nowhere else compares.

I came here with an open mind as a first time diner, I love Cantonese food so was looking forward to it. I'd heard good things so I wasn't worried even when the waiter was very sharp when trying to explain how the menu worked, as his English wasn't quite adequate enough to get his pout across. The food came... More

I really could not speak highly enough of this place. I've been before with family and always incredible but thought I'd give it a go with my partner. We thought it was a little much at 15.95 for the all you can eat deal but I ended up feeling like I should've paid more?! The food was cooked perfectly, prepared... More
