We used this restaurant weekly in the late 80's early 90's haven't been to have a sit down meal for at least 20 years. The food tonight was as good as it was then. Tom as always a very good host. Always friendly. Highly recommend.

The first Chinese restaurant in the area, well-established clientele. A little dated, could do with a bit of a spruce-up. Food is superb, service OK

On a recent visit to the area we decided to have a take away, I had special curry and my wife had chicken sweet and sour. My curry was so greasy and bland and my wife's chicken was dry so after one mouth full we decided to throw the food away. This Chinese was great a few years ago but... More

It has been here for a long time which tells you good things. Located at the end of the Crescent, the "other" Main Street of the town centre it has a traditional feel to it with a good range and quality of food you would expect. Don't expect the newest most modern decor it's the tradition you would try this... More

Probably one of the longest running Chinese restaurants in Spalding but still definitely the best by far. Can be on the pricy side compared to others but in my opinion definitely worth the bit extra. Food is the best

The owner of this small chinese restaurant made us very welcome. We chose one of the set meals for two people and we were not disappointed, except that we had no room for dessert! We would eat here again.
