I have only ever used (many times) this small restaurant for a take-away. But having said that I would not hesitate to sit in. This place is inexpensive by comparison to others but don't be fooled, the food is great with very reasonable sized portions. The place is warm and cozy and the staff are so friendly, helpful and attentive... More

After ordering takeaway from here numerous times, safe to say tonight was the last. The first time both food and delivery were great- the food especially! Ever since we have had to wait over 2 hours for food. We gave them one last chance and they have blown it. Not only are we now approaching 2 hours waiting, they will... More

I always get a take-away from here and the thing that sets this place apart is the staff, they're friendliest you'll ever meet and very accommodating. The food itself is good, and the price is great for the area.

I ate here for the first time a few months ago and haven't looked back since. The food as great, as is the service. Tina is very welcoming and friendly. Always makes time to have a chat with her customers which is really nice. I eat here every week and will continue to do so.

Come here regularly for takeaways. So many good choices! Would recommend shredded chilli chicken, salt and pepper prawns, crispy pork with special sauce, shu mai, Singapore fried rice and the chicken satay starter! Really friendly staff! Love it here!

Great tasting food at a great price. Ordered a takeaway and collected it in half an hour. Would recommend the set menu B for 2. Fantastic value for money, with so much great tasting food. Will definitely be going back.

You can tell something about the management of a business that when you walk in she remembers what you nornally order and its only done once or twice a month. The staff are always friendly and when you order set a realistic expectation of how long it will be so no wasted time. The food is always fresh this is... More

Delicious food happy to cater for my & my friend who are both Veggie with really crispy Tofu and my other friend who is an avid meat eater with the biggest pile of chicken wings I have seen in a long time. Amazing waitress cute accent and so funny and chatty and generous portions of food. Very reasonable priced
