Highly recommend this excellent restaurant! We had a beautiful meal last night, staff are welcoming and attentive and the owner Benny ensures that everything is perfect. Great central location, looking forward to going back soon.

A lovely Chinese with excellent food and a very friendly owner and waitress. The noodles were beautiful and reasonably priced as were the other dishes. We would definitely recommend and visit again when in Belfast.
