Took ages to get through on the phone so presumed it would be good. The duck was good quality but apart from that the food was tasteless, wouldn't consider ordering again.

Visiting Chinatown we thought we'd get an amazing authentic Chinese dining experience after looking at several restaurants we ended up in this one, realising my mistake looking around at the basic dirty surroundings but we were shown to a table and sat down and decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. The prawn crackers came tasted stale(great) with... More

Upsetting in all ways. I am retired lady who took my daughter here as a treat. Half way through the food (which was awful, just tasteless) I felt so ill. I asked for the bill and pointed out to the waiter that we hadn't eaten most of it because it was awful. Still the bill was brought. Very expensive indeed.... More

My mother and I ate here during her trip to visit me from Brighton. Ribs and prawn toast starters were very greasy and very average. A couple of mouthfuls into the mains my mother became very ill and I wasnt feeling great either. We made a quick exit after paying and getting no response from the waiter when we said... More

My Boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on Friday evening from work as we both had a craving for Chinese and I work just round the corner, so easy enough for us! The owners seem to have invested alot in the outside of the restaurant, and after reading other reviews probably upstairs too but we felt like we were... More

One can argue the unfairness of the clear 'Two Menus' saga that has been taking place throughout Chinese restaurants all over the country. The 'wai guo ren' (foreign people - ie you and me) are presented with English menus full of the same old gloopy, sickly and fluoroescent dishes we have sadly come to know as 'Chinese Food' whilst the...

I am Chinese and my husband is English who has been living in Hong Kong for the past 3 years and knows what Chinese food should be like. We saw this new restaurant and would really like to have some proper hot Sichuan food, so we went in and were really looking forward to it. After seeing my English husband... More

Went here on a Saturday night in late February. Full of Asian people eating interesting dishes. We asked what the dishes were from the manager who was serving us and were told in no uncertain terms that the food wasn't for "us" as it was too spicey and we should just stick to the normal menu. Upon asking again we... More

i cannot describe how bad the food is here. Its possibly the worst chinese restaurant i have ever been to. The staff are rude and the manager/ owner has got the worst attitude ever. The food was hot at the top and cold in the middle. Microwaved up for sure. Also they are expensive for what it is. Believe me... More
