Myself and my boyfriend visited M&L for dinner late on a Sunday - about 8pm. It’s nice to find a dinner on a Sunday that isn’t just a takeaway, and we were very keen when we saw how busy the restaurant was. We decided to...More

Four of us dined here last night. Service; iffy ! Ambience ; so-so ! Food good, especially the hot and sour soup, and the dumplings. Bit over the top price wise, but overall a pleasant meal.

This place has a good location but it is completely disappointing when it comes to service. Not only the time to process the order but also the fact that it has been misplaced and charged twice. Perhaps a shortage of staff or the language barrier...More
