We have never complained but the service received on Valentines night was atrocious! Got there at 7pm, no starter by 7.50pm so left as would not wait any longer. Others who arrived after us were eating! When questioned, was told 'rudely' they were busy. Busy or not, 50 minutes without any apology for delay was totally unacceptable. Have been going... More

We have eaten here on and off over the past 6 years. The manageress is extremely rude, very abrupt and has no sense of good customer service. However, the food was always good so we returned. However after tonight's experience we won't be returning there. We chose our dishes from the buffet £16 per head buffet menu. They took our... More

Having had good reports, we felt we had to give it a try! Conclusion, very good food indeed. Good value and service, we have since been back on several occasions as well as myself and others for separate gatherings. We shall certainly go again, it is different! Unique, you might say, but very good.

This is the best Chinese food I have had in the area. Not cheap but then one goes there for an evening, and there is no rush.

We were a party of four, on a busy Saturday night. We were greeted pleasantly by the manageress and served by her and others throughout. We chose one of the set menus and asked if we could swap a vegetable dish for a chow mein. No problem. The service was a little slow, but to be expected for such a... More

First time of trying this restaurant, which seems to have very mixed reviews. The staff were welcoming and polite and the service was good. The food was excellent. We asked whether the portion sizes were tapas style and ordered a selection of dishes for the two of us. When the food came, there was a lot of it! With an... More

Having eaten there a few times we have put up with the chilly restaurant as the food has always been excellent, however tonight the attititude of the manageress has really got up my nose and on principle I will not be lining her pocket with my hard earned money. We took advantage of their buffet however when ordering a variety... More
