Truly disappointing. Had the worst Hot & Sour in my life. Shrimps and ducks mixed together, didn't taste anything like Hot & Sour (and I have it regularly in various places). Being a big fan of very spicy food (myself and my partner) we couldn't have more than 3 spoons. The stuff was not helpful or accommodating at all. I... More

In there last night for an early takeaway. Very pleasant (not a huge fan of any type of takeaway). Fresh and tasty. Would use again.

We have eaten in this restaurant before and It was amazing. After viewing the menu online I rang to order a delivery, I was informed that the menu online was out of date and that someone would call with a new menu, they were here in no time. I then ordered and the food was delivered piping hot and tasted... More

I decided to take the easy way out and ordered a takeaway for myself. I Ordered the hot and sour soup and sweet and sour chicken Hong Kong style. The soup was very good but the chicken in the sweet & sour had been cooked earlier and then added to the dish. I have eaten here before and it has... More

This restaurant serves good western style Chinese food but don't be fooled by the raving reviews if you're looking for authentic Chinese.

We have been to this restaurant every year for the past 8 years and we're really disappointed this year. The restaurant was extremely warm with no air con on and the young male waiter was either very nervous or extremely miserable as he didn't even smile once the whole time we were there. He also didn't seem to know anything... More

We visited this place recently. They have a massive range of food. The dishes I had were okay but the rest of party were extremely impressed hence the rating Michael the owner comes across as a great guy.

We met this couple many years ago in another restaurant. After all these years we have found them in their own "Gourmet Restaurant"! Have visited it a couple of times this year and will certainly be going there again and again! The food (Hong Kong style) cooked by Michael is delicious, with a nice presentation. We always leave the choices... More
