Best place for Chinese food in Manchester. Love a big banquet with the family, or most recently, a meal for two. Service good, prices good, food always excellent.

I used to be a regular at this restaurant, but since changing my workplace have not visited the restaurant for some many years. Yes, it still looks the same, food very good, butt no different to any of the other restaurants in the area. The guy I was with said this was the best / most authentic restaurant in the... More

Used this place a fair amount over the years. Right in the heart of Chinatown next door to the Grosvenor Casino, up the Stairs and huge dining room. It's open until very late so you'll get a beer or wine late, and the food is fantastic, tasty fresh Chinese food with a very cheap price tag. Service is very quick... More

Ignore the 4 star rating. The service was slow ), un-attentive and the waitress struggled. The toilets were disgusting absolutely unhygienic. To top it off a male went to the female toilets whilst I was with my 7 year old daughter. It was awful. The starters were re-heated in a deep fat fryer and not cooked fresh. I felt sick.... More

Toi be perfectly honest if your looking for glitz and glamour or an interior wow factor you've gone to the wrong place but if you are looking for exceptionally excellent food and very, very sensible prices with outstandingly attentive staff and a fast efficient service you certainly have arrived at the right place. I highly recommend and my visitors are... More

This restraunt is open until 3am and has a bouncer on the door which is understandable but lowers the tone, as does the decor which is extremely shabby. The place is very much in need of a makeover. Alot of chinese customers eat at the restaurant and it is very clear that there are different food options available to them.... More

Attended with my partner and family to celebrate Chinese New Year. Before showing us to our table a British waiter couldn't see the rest of our family and asked one of my family members if we are a white or Chinese family wanting a table. We said mainly white (my partner was Chinese, the rest of us Caucasian) and were... More

Popular with locals - good dim sum and fast service. Not easy to find as it is not along the main streets of Chinatown and the restaurant is a flight of steps up.

Just the carpet tells you how dirty this place is - it is filthy and loose! An accident waiting to happen. Food clearly pre cooked and warmed up. Rice put on plates and then cold before meal arrives. Fish expensive and tasteless and full of bones. Toilets with bins overflowing with sanitary napkins. Awful dreary place. Lacking in any reason... More
