My wife, son and I visited for my birthday. I was slightly nervous as I had read mixed reviews, but having recently moved close-by thought we should try, and I am very glad that we did. Whilst the decor is pretty basic, the staff were friendly and efficient. I thought they might not want us to order too much (and... More

I read the reviews and through we'd try it anyway. To my utter disappointment we paid £16.00 each ( although the menu clearly states £14.00). Further to this I was under the impression it's all you can eat, however the lady stopped the 4 of us ordering after repeating 6 dishes, not sure is this regular practice but we had... More

A fantastic little place in the centre of the village. Great service, limited beverages but plenty of very good Chinese food. Great value for money...lovely staff...and they do deliver locally...

Have had takeaway delivery for over 10 years. Last 3 deliveries late and rude. Tonight's half hour early, cold, soggy and again rude on the phone. Order £6 more expensive than the website. Goodbye.

The food was very fresh. We didn't have to wait at all to be served. Sadly one the waiters was exceptionally miserable but he was working working hard so we'll let him off!

The worst "Chinese" food I have ever eaten and nothing like food in China or Hong Kong. The waiter said that the added sugar was for local tastes! The shredded smoked chicken arrived coated in sugar crystals like mini Yule logs in a Xmas decoration. The chicken in black bean and cashew was in a sugary syrup and when we... More

This is a fixed price, "eat what you like" establishment, some slightly unusual dishes but mostly familiar, Cantonese cooking.

We had read the reviews prior to ordering a takeaway and were a little concerned... but we shouldn't have been. The food was good and all freshly cooked with nice big chunks of chicken in the chow mein. Service was 40 minutes after ordering, which is exactly how long they had said it would be. Would happily order takeaway again... More

Last minute decision to have a Chinese take away after getting home late. This was our first visit to this restaurant and I must say we are going back. A simple take away tonight but our next visit will take advantage of their single price, eat all you like menu. I use chopsticks which help you pace yourself and you... More

There is a large menu and you can pick what you like and can always order more. Most courses come up for sharing so you can choose lots of items to sample.
