The food here is excellent and affordable. The restaurant feels classy and well run. They do Thai and O down dishes as well so good when everyone in the family wants something different

With only two other tables occupied it was difficult to understand the reason for the lack of quick service.
There was an air of complacency or 'we're soon to be renovated', in accord with the adjacent bar and shops to be knocked down ready for a rebuild. We noticed that the bar closed fully only a few days later.
Having been to this restaurant some years ago when it was simply chinese/thai, the extended menu with much indian etc was a disappointment.
The fare was adequate but noy exciting, but prices were low and reflected this.
Sadly, nothing special!

We called in here as it was close to where we were staying and did not want to walk far this evening and we were very pleased we did.

The restaurant offers a mix of Asian/Indian cuisines but we opted for Chinese.

The 4 of us had the Mixed Starters, then the crispy duck and pancakes, then individual main courses. It was all very fresh, crisp and decent portions. The highlight was the duck shar sui which was very delicate but fantastic.

Definitely worth calling in if you are passing and quite reasonable cost wise.

My partner had chicken pakora to start. It came with an odd illuminous green sauce which he did not try. I assumed it was mint. I had won ton which was plentiful if a little under seasoned. Our mains arrived quickly. Lemon chicken which again was good but slightly lethargic looking. The fried rice was nice. My partner enjoyed his crispy chilli chicken and boiled rice. We found the wine list to be good and reasonably priced as was the beer. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Prices for the food seemed comparable to home. The restaurant and toilets were clean. If passing and you fancy Chinese I would give this a try. They also offer Thai and Indian cuisine.
