On entering the restaurant we were pleased to see that the majority of the clientele were Chinese, so we felt that the food would not be too westernized. On being shown to our table we were offered the extensive menu and tea. We took our time to order because the choice was so great. Advice was offered, but we eventually... More

On a two night business trip we decided to have dinner at this restaurant - boy do we wish we'd gone back to Bella Italia ( which was absolutely amazing)! On entering the restaurant a grumpy looking waiter glared at us as if we shouldn't have been entering the restaurant, after asking if we could have a table for 3... More

Went for the dimsum but had some ho fun which was good, roast duck ok but better than most places, chicken with crispy noodles which was uninspiring with chewy chicken, but other items such as cheung fun, sui mai, paper wrapped prawns war tip etc were all very much as expected and well received have had better but this is...

Noisy restaurant due to a table of exuberant locals ! Short walk from the Birmingham Hippodrome and opposite the Ibis Hotel. Very good service, extensive menu and friendly staff. Good quality Cantonese food - decor a bit tired but would visit again.

Quaint Chinese full of locals having a good time. Ok so it could do with s facelift but the food is amazing. Don't bother if you want your average sweet and sour... this is a proper cantonese serving real authentic Chinese good. 10/10 cant wait to visit again

Visited this restaurant for the first time after being told many times by my other half how good it was. I have to say I was very disappointed. The food was far too salty, the chicken was so dry I struggled to chew it, the prawn toast was like a brick, the only saving grace was the yuk sung -... More
