Never disappointed Must've been 7 or 8 times now have never been disappointed. Quick service, great tasting food at a great price. The Pad Thai is big enough that probably don't need a starter. ----------

It also looks a lot healthier than getting any other take away! The menu has so much to choose from and it is always reasonably priced! I guarantee anyone... More

Me and my Partner visited on a Tuesday night, the place was empty! We ordered mains and sides too find the dish was the same only with one with rice and one with noodles! For a dish at £9 I can't say it was worth the money and very salty. The side of battered chicken was burnt and the chips... More

Thursday lunch with five friends, two courses for £7.95 from the lunchtime menu. As requested, the starters arrived with the main courses. I had beef with peppers in black bean sauce - very black, very glutinous sauce with not a lot of flavour and lots of it. The rice was fine, and again, lots of it. Everyone's main course was... More

Came here for a friends 30th. They were happy for people to come in and set up early (banners and balloons) Service was very good and the staff were polite. There is a huge choice for food and all the portions were good. Prices are very reasonable and the location is by the pier

We found this restaurant unusual in that it had a mix of Asian cuisines, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese. The food was very good and the set lunch menu was very good value and good portions with varied choice. The staff are helpful and friendly, a pleasant experience.

Tried here for the first time and glad we did. The food is lovely although I ordered a crispy noodle dish that said it was done in soy sauce but when it was bought over it was in a thick soup like sauce but this is not mentioned on the menu, it was still nice but just a bit too... More
