Pretty typical mid class Chinese. Deep fried everything, food generally of medium quality but the flavours were there. Staff efficiently friendly. Ok if you are not too fussy. Nice fish tank.

Decided to call in for a meal one night during a short stay in Helensburgh. We were seated quickly and the food did not take too long to come. Tasty food, friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

Had a tasty takeaway tonight with the family. Great portions and very reasonable price. Chicken balls a little doughy, crispy beef was great. Thank you!

Eat here with two friends and although 10pm saturday night were only customers! Food and service were good and wine was excellent so asked for another bottle only to be told we were too late as it was after 11pm. Can only assume they wanted to get rid of us and didn't want our money!

Another happy experience. Lovely food served by friendly staff. Enjoyed my hot and sour soup followed by the chef's special curry which is one of the best I have ever had. All the rest of our party enjoyed their meals and said they would be returning soon again.

The restaurant itself is pleasant and the usual sort of Chinese interior. The staff are courteous and efficient. The food is okay, personally I find it a little salty and the food quite florescent and the BBQ sauce is inedible. Money wise it's not unreasonable but to be honest a takeaway bag from a supermarket would do much better and... More
