I have visited restaurant many times. It affords excellent secure covered parking. The restaurant is vast and always busy. Style of cuisine slightly different but always full of Chinese community. Has a huge menu.

Some places eg. Wong ting in Sheffield always offer the tea for free. However some do charge whether you are Chinese or not. My partner is Chinese and we always pay for our tea in Glamorous. Hope this helps :)
