I came here on a Sunday evening so it was pretty quiet, but I can imagine it was heaving at lunch time. They had a huge selection of food on the menu, even an evening dim sum menu which was great as it's my favourite! The food arrived quickly and was delicious! The portions were smaller than the Chinese restaurant... More

We always eat here on Christmas day because the food is so good, the dim sum in particular being very fine, and the prices are the same price as the rest of the year. Before we chose... More

Having tried the Dimsum at SeeWoo, we decided to try out this one. The restaurant looks clean and nice, more fancy than you would expect when looking at its surroundings. The dimsum was nice but we had to wait quite awhile to get it and this was lunch on a Wednesday. Service was ok. One thing that I wasn't expected... More

We went on Friday night, we both saw this restaurant on google and thought we would give it a go for our trip up to Scotland. The taxi took us to the restaurant which first impressions we thought it was a bit out of the way, walking into the seating area we were sat next to the beautiful marine fish... More
