This is a traditional Chinese restaurant with excellent knowledgeable staff. We had a table of 12 people and the service was superb. The food was brilliant, especially the crispy skiing Duck. Highly recommend this place.

Followed an ally to find this hidden gem. Wow, was delicious. The lemon chicken was crispy skin and not coated in batter. A nice change. The beef and black bean is a go-to fav. Again, amazing.high chair for baby and quick food service.

I’ve been dining here for years, and whilst it seems to be becoming less popular, the duck remains the sole reason I continue to visit. It is always beautiful. I’ll keep returning for this reason alone.

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
