Visited last night as a last minute. It is a restaurant attached to a pub. Wine list was fairly standard with a varied choice. I checked the dishes on other tables on the way in and all looked fine. We ordered starter platter for two which was very nice although the sweet and sour sauce looked fluorescent. The mixed seafood... More

This has to be one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area. The tea smoked chicken as start is wonderful. We had the mid week offer which is great value, and means you have a vast selection of dishes to choose from, although, a bit expensive it was very tasty, customer service very attentive. Worth a visit.

Stopped off Saturday night 29/04, impromptu visit, after visiting many times over the years, very disappointed on this occasion. The welcome was not particularly warm, we felt as if it was an inconvenience walking in, but we got over it. Duck was good as usual buts that's where it ended. We followed this with special fried rice, special chow mein,... More

Visited due to its top rating here and did not get disappointed. The restaurant has the typical set up of what you would expect from your local Chinese, but the food really gives this place its credits. Quality ingredients, freshly cooked, well-presented and very tasty. Service is good, fast and polite; could do with a smile, but cannot fault it... More

Visited here with friends last weekend and after having to wait for weeks to get a table we were all sadly let down feeling, what's the fuss about. Arrived and table was ready and drinks order taken very quickly then it went down hill. Starters came out one by one with about a 5 minute gap in-between but by the... More

This was not our first visit to this excellent Chinese restaurant and returned because of the very good cuisine cooking we have had before. Also, the restaurant is set out as a Chinese restaurant should be with proper table cloths, napkins, chopsticks, albeit knives and forks are available for those who don`t use chopsticks. Prices are above possibly what one... More
