Food was good and would rate that 4/5 but the place it's self was like being in a school hall so that's why it's lost the two stars.

We dropped in just on the off chance last Saturday and enjoyed a really great meal. Chose a set menu for ease and the staff were so accommodating - allowing my husband to swap the prawn dishes for meat ones. They even served the hot and spicy soup without prawns for him. The crispy duck was plentiful and the mains... More

On precious visits the welcome and service has been more friendly - I was a little embarrassed when my 88 year old mum was told she could not partake of any of mine and my partners all you can eat buffet choices in addition to her favourite main course choice of Lemon Chicken which she enjoyed. I appreciate the restaurant... More

We don't go to this restaurant often, but whenever we do, we are always SO impressed. The standard of the food is consistently excellent, and the service is prompt and efficient. We travel from Haywards Heath, because the Chinese restaurants there are poor in comparison. We had Set Meal 'G', just because you get the 'usual' starters, which are SO... More

We have come here several times for dinner and the food has been consistently outstanding. We always come as a large party and have been given great service and nothing is too much trouble. The starter selections are divine, as is the crispy duck middle course and I'm usually too full to eat too much of the mains but they... More
