Always a friendly welcome, speedy service and absolutely delicious food. We tend to order the set meal for two but have the option to change the main food if desired. Take home cartons for any leftovers on hand! Can't wait to visit again. Parking on main road or close side streets.

5 of us had a meal here and were impressed by the great service and prompt service by the very friendly and knowledgable young waiter, starters and main courses were all excellent and at an average of £20 per head including drinks was great value.

Just returned from a meal at the Summer Palace. Have to say that the food was divine, the service was excellent and the hospitality and welcome was what you would expect in a Michelin Starred restaurant. Well done, guys. You've got it exactly right!

When the restaurant 1st opened I had a poor experience and didn't go back for a couple of years. What a difference, I now visit frequently and have tried a majority of the menu and every dish has been excellent. Highly recommended.

Took some friends and had a very good meal but it was Sam who made the night so enjoyable! He was SO friendly and couldn't do enough for us. What a character! Brought cake and candles for the birthday girl without our requesting it. A very pleasant evening! Thank you.
