So sorry to say this guys but its closed down! As of 30/10/16. Think it's due to retirement though nothing else. I used to go there a lot when I lived in Bangor, for the lunch buffet. Gorgeous food and lovely people! The chef alone deserves 5* rating. You will be missed loads and best wishes for the future.

Specified as a gluten free restaurant by the Celiac society, I was disappointed by the limited choice of gluten free meals. Food was lovely but the drinks are tiny and VERY pricey! The restaurant was very cold when I visited (afternoon) and we had to keep our coats on all through the meal.

We regularly get takeaways from here and are always impressed by the good friendly service and the good food. The only downside is that it is a little pricey. We do enjoy coming here and will continue to do so.

Got a takeaway from here on the basis that it's the highest rated Chinese in the area, I was not disappointed! It was ready to collect in 10 minutes. I did feel it was a little pricey in comparison to other places when I paid the bill on collection. However the food was amazing and definitely worth paying a little... More
