We visited here as a party of 6 the night before a family wedding. We started with duck which was nicely taken off the bone and served with ample pancakes and sauce. The main courses were also good especially the tofu with black beans.

Had a takeaway from here tonight. The dishes were superb and tasty. Also it was ready on the dot and I didn't have to wait around. Obviously a popular venue as the restaurant part was full. Top marks.
