Flew down from Aberdeen for a catch up with mates and for my sisters 50th at Crown City. The staff were aware that our arrival was a surprise and went along with the plan. They hid me and my partner until my sister arrived. We ordered from the a la carte menu. Everything was fresh, well cooked and very tasty.... More

Short drive from Maidstone. The staff make a lot of effort to make you feel welcome. I have been quite critical of Chinese food that tastes out of a sweet and sour tin before, but all this food was really nice, tasted fresh and original. Yummy! Would definitely recommend! Especially the tea smoked shredded chicken for a starter.

The food was fine, set meals starting at £21pp. The bad news was a 10% service charge, but also that ALL drinks were bottles only. A large lime/soda turned out to cost £8 (4 bottles at £2 a pop), so our moderate drinks consumption ended up costing more then the food. There was also a large party present with unruly... More

We booked for 15 people for our sons 18th Birthday celebration. Family and friends. Saturday night. The staff were very accommodating and happy to discuss the menu in advance with us to ensure that our evening was the best that they could offer. They were very honest and open with us, stating that they only had two chefs and that... More

Great food. All freshly cooked to order and as much as you would like.. We usually go weekdays and sometimes we are the only ones in there so lacking ambience. I guess it is busier evenings and weekends..

The staff were absolutely terrible, zero respect to their customers at all! Almost laughable, she took our food order and was so sarcastic and rude she rolled her eyes constantly and I watch on another table a lady ordered Chinese tea and the waitress laughed in her face, it was so strange to watch such terrible service! Very expensive aswell!... More

Went for supper. Ordered what should be fairly easy fare for a competent chinese restaurant. Wonton soup was ok but pricey given the quantity provided. Cantonese duck and Cantonese pork are dishes that if you have them available in the kitchen require nil preparation. You literally chunk them up and put them on a plate. They had the dishes on...
