We went for our anniversary dinner just my partner and I. We had made reservations but were late called to let them know they were extremely friendly. When we got there it was late and we ordered right away the true love meal they did tell us that because the kitchen closes at 1030 they would need to bring the... More

We've been to the York branch of this shop and we loved it so thought we'd try the "original" while we were near by. The food was lovely, the pork belly with chilli especially! We went at 3 o'clock and it was very quiet but it began to pick up a little later on. Food was served quickly and hot.... More

How often do you remark that the service in a Chinese restaurant is excellent ? Well the two ladies who served us were tops. Greeted, shown to out table, offered menus and asked if we needed a drink whilst ordering. Menu was explained and great care was taken to ensure we understood what we had ordered as many of the...

This is not the place you need if you want the best of the best. However, it does offer a wide range of choices in the menu. We tried three most common Chinese cuisines and they are delicious. I have to say that not all waiters in the restaurant are polite and enthusiastic. When we stepped in the restaurant in... More

Went here just before Christmas and have to say the food was excellent, Really good service as well. Had baby squid for starters plus the steak spring rolls, Both were cooked to perfection. Main course of Duck and Scallops for the Girlfriend were also beautiful. Price was expensive for a Chinese but the portions and quality were very good.

We were disappointed by the food as it was far from the descriptions in the menu. The lady manager was rude and told us we should have request the actual ingredients that we want ( how on earth would we know they wouldn't add a single mushroom in the food that is called mushroom and chicken! Great job). Would not... More

Enjoyed our meal here on a Sunday evening. Service was attentive and efficient. All the dishes we had were good and portions were reasonably sized - not too big or too small. Huge variety in the menu. Decor was pleasant.

What a great find, the restaurant was busy but we didn't have to wait long, great service and the food was not expensive.There was a large menu catering for lots of popular Chinese dishes however there was lots of the more traditional/unusual choices. The food was really tasty and the place has a nice atmosphere, the staff were really attentive... More

Solo dinner on a work trip. I don't usually like to go into places where you can't see the restaurant from the street but took a risk (this restaurant is at basement level). Bigger inside than it looks from street level, simply decorated. Menu is intimidatingly large - a whole book of laminated pages with illustrations. Not a huge number... More
