When you unexpectedly turn up to a restaurant, sign in, take a ticket and form an orderly queue the expectation is set. Boy, we weren't disappointed. The wait staff quickly ushered us to our clean and spacious table and proceeded to run through the drink...More

Food was delicious. Great portion size and good quick service. The only downfall was having to sit on the cracked vinyl scratchy seats.

This used to be a great cheap and cheerful dumpling restaurants. However, serving sizes are down and prices are up as well as not as good a quality. Still worthwhile but it's lost some if it's wow factor.
