This place has had some negative reviews, but I can only say that we had a great meal when we visited. Food was well cooked and arrived in the time that we were told. Definitely worth a try if you’re hungry and in Dolgellau.

Rather shabby looking Chinese takeaway, just a hundred metres from the bridge. The food however is excellent. The sweet and sour chicken, the pancake rolls, and beef chop suey are all highly recommended. The only downside with this place, is that they only take cash!...More

Went in and ordered and was told there would be a long wait. Food came in five minutes and was not too bad for what it was. However, when you are miles from anywhere, needs must but I won't return.

We ordered chicken curry, it was a slimy mess. Sweet & sour chicken, we could taste corn flour. To be fair, this is not the first time. We needed a quick meal after a 4 hour journey.

First Chinese that the food didn't taste anything like it was supposed to according to its name. Odd flavours.
