A friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The Sunday buffet is different to most other Chinese restaurants as everything is cooked freshly and to order as opposed to it festering in its own juices. Best Chinese is town.

This is one of the tastiest Chinese meals I've ever had the pleasure of eating. The quality of the food is amazing, not too salty or greasy. The staff were lovely. I'll happily go again.
