Our menu has tastes from different parts of China but also has a very popular Omelette & Chips for the not so adventurous!We also have Gluten Free, Low Calorie & Vegetarian options.Our staff our most polite & efficient & the boss loves to give her personal touch in serving too! There is a large car park facing the premises & parking right outside for the disabled.The extended bar license provides a popular SunLik Chinese Beer on draft, along with many trendy cocktails & shots!
