I used to come here a lot, back when they offered both a lunch and an evening buffet set up. Now they do a set menu alongside their regular menu,so I thought I'd revisit. The A board outside advertised an "express menu" of two courses...More

What an absolute gem. The lunchtime specials are fantastic. Really authentic and incredible value. Beef brisket with pickled vegetables and chilli was fantastic. Exactly the right balance of heat and sourness and the brisket was perfect with just the right amount of fat. Service is...More

Been to this place number of times and always consistent food. Tastes good but it's very cold in winters as heating is never turned on unless strongly asked. If you really want to enjoy the food in winter I would suggest taking ur thick coat.

Three of us decided to call in after a couple of beers on Sunday evening. The windows were steamed up and, on entering, found the place to be pretty crowded, mostly with what appeared to be Chinese clientele. The decor is nothing to write home...More

We are usually the only white couple in, so you know it's proper. Sweet and sour pork is off the chain
