Visited early evening for a pre-match meal for Wales v Ireland rugby international. Don't be put off by the outsie appearance of the restaurant which is a above a row of shops meaning you get quite a surprise when you go inside and enter a large dining area. Restaurant was quiet when we arrived but quickly filled up with groups... More

Booked a table here after it being recommended to us by friends. Service could be better, food was ok but not the best, we left one full dish as the noodles were burnt and pork did not look cooked. We would not come back here again unfortunately.

Visited last week at lunchtime with my wife and brother-in-law, luckily we arrived early as a little later there were large parties of Chinese filling the restaurant, the quality and quantity of food was above expectations and the cost was not unreasonable. The service and ambiance were excellent and it is certainly a place we will visit again.

We'd heard so much about this restaurant but it was an hour away from our home. Nevertheless, we booked a hotel and made a night of it. After a short taxi ride we arrived at an unassuming building and climbed stairs to arrive the restaurant itself. We were really surprised to find a busy, authentic Chinese restaurant. Great ambiance and... More

Had a good meal here - really good service and really good food, but at £60 for two people, I find that quite expensive for a Chinese restaurant.

I just had one of the worst services in my life, 30 minutes waiting after finishing starters to get the main course, we simply requested one of the plates to come without chili and they did fail to do so, and then manager (or maybe owner) made a comment like: oh! menu says with chili, why they order then? Don't... More

Came here after reserving a table for a visit with friends. We had to wait 20 mins after our time as the table wasn't ready. That was ok however it only got worse... the floors were dirty and had lots of food on. Tables squashed together too. Our drinks took a good 20 minutes to come and the waiter had... More

The decor has improved with new carpets and repainted walls.On arriving we were glad we booked as the place was packed full with families and groups,however the service was still... More
