Ate here recently on an overnight to the city, good Chinese and for a Monday very brisk trade. Had some dim sum followed by pork and pak choi with egg fried rice, with a couple of beers around £30. Recommended!

I went just for a small lunch. I had Thai Style Mixed Seafood with Red Curry in Iron Pot. This was good, but not very good. I was satisfied, but I will not go there on my next visit to Cambridge.More
