Ordered a takeaway from here. Worst Chinese food ever. First up they got our order wrong, which meant having to drive back again to get it redone. Finally we sat down to eat at home and the fishcake starters were so small. The fishcake were...More

Went here on a Monday night for a birthday celebration and the so-called 'all you can eat feast'. Initially it started off well we filled in our menu sheets and from then on it went rapidly downhill. The service was to put it nicely appalling....More
