Just had a really great vegetarian meal here. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the Aubergine melted in the mouth. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with a lovely big smile. Excellent value for money.

Had our first takeaway from here and it was absolutely gorgeous ordered for 3 but so much food we could've fed 5 easily! Will definitely order from here again.

Had a take away regardless of some reviews, I'm very fussy esp when I'm away from home, I found the food to be very nice, the ribs need a nice thick sauce but the char Sui curry and the chicken wings were lovley

Ordered a takeaway for delivery, the total cost came to £52.50 according to the person at the other end of the phone. Problem 1, a taxi minibus arrived at the block of flats only to tell us that the bill was now £55 as we had to pay for the taxi, even though a delivery charge was already included on... More

A lovely meal, lots of meat and fresh vegetables in all of the dishes. Another bag of complimentary prawn crackers would've been good as we were a group of 5! I'm sure we'll frequent the place again!

There are only two Chinese restaurants in Keswick and as the other is closed on Wednesdays, we decided to try this one which is located in the shopping centre.

The first visit we chose options of the main menu and then later in the week had the set 3 courses for £13 per person. Also very good and very reasonably priced. This time... More
