I had a lovely variety of takeaways- not 100% what I was looking forward to but yummy nonetheless. I would definitely advised for a take away order rather than a sit down dinner. Although the restaurant is cute and has it's own "character" , I...More

Regular family favourite and a favourite with Chinese locals.Would highly recommend the stirfried calamari, kung pao chicken and the best Thai red curry chicken or beef. The decor could do with an update.

What a bad experience. Poor service and extremely rude owners/chef. Spoilt my day. Food poor and overpriced as well. One cannot help but suspect that the restaurant is a front for some underground activity.
