I'll start by saying if you're looking for boring English style Chinese Takeaway food this is not the place you'll find it. What you will find is fragrant fresh and truly delicious Cantonese and Sichuanese cuisine. We ordered the six course banquet for two people. Absolute dining bliss! Aromatic duck was nice, pickled vegetables exceptionally good. We chose the beef... More

This little jewel will not let you down, although the portions could be bigger, the meals were super hot and delicious all made from scratch and full of flavor, we had the dessert Sticky toffee bananas and apples, super sticky and really good. We had a great evening.

We have been visiting this restaurant for over 28 years and as ever our experience was lovely. Gorgeous food - we had a set banquet - and fabulous attentive service. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet for a Friday night but we had a lovely evening.

Don't live locally and needed somewhere to eat, found this place on trip advisor. Turned up wondering what we had booked when we saw the store front but don't let it fool you, the food was delicious and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. An unexpected gem, shame it isn't in Leeds
