Greatest disappointment. Food was badly prepared no taste at all. Old hard rice smelt slightly off. Soup was terrible. Tasted like tomato and water. Very bland. Asked for rice noodles got vermicelli instead. Was absolutely horrific. Never heard of this place ever just tried it...More

We chose the set meal 1 and 3. Although it started well with a great soup and spring roll, the chop suey and beef cashew was disappointing. Sweet and sour pork was a few battered balls with a drizzle of tasteless sauce. Ice cream was...More

We choose a set menu. We were happy with the egg soup but what happened next is unacceptable. They brought us a bowl of rice. The rest of the menu was served in small side plates, small portions each and it looked very unprofessional. We...More

This restaurant is consistently good and we have been going there for about 12 years. The set menus are very good value and also the baked fish is excellent. Lovely people here.

We don't like sweet and sour pork - we love it!!! Sadly this did not even feature on our scale of enjoyment! Beautifully appointed restaurant but the food has a long way to go!!

Great food .. great service. A Chinese family run business and the own is always walking around checking on patrons. Potions are ok depending on the meals but every meal tasted is great. This place never disappoints.

I used to absolutely LOVE this Chinese Restaurant, but they have dropped the ball the last couple of times we've been. The Sweet & Sour Chicken was more than disappointing, both in flavour & portion size. The Chicken was overdone & in huge chunks.

This a great place if you want a good Chinese evening. One of the very few Chinese restaurants left. A large variety of different menus. Delicious food. They have revamped the restaurant and it looks authentic. It is family run. The service is fabulous and...More
