Been here loads of times. Sunday buffet is basic but really good value for money. Evening menu is substantial and very nice quality food. Never had a problem here, but...if you want quality food expect a bill which reflects, it's not cheap. Neither are the drinks !

I tend to think of Chinese restaurants as "much of a muchness" but this one has a lovely ambience & great food. It's spotlessly clean, the staff are all pleasant & efficient & the price is reasonable.

A friend suggested we went here for a meal, as he had been and couldn't say enough how good it was. We were not disappointed. From the warm welcome, to the fantastic food and service, nothing was too much. Would highly recommend
