Had a great Chinese takeaway from here whilst we were in Elgin staying with family. Decided to go here after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. Would definitely recommend!

Sadly there is no sit in. Otherwise, the food was very enjoyable. The decor might put people off, but it would their loss. The staff was friendly and efficient.
