Visited on Fri 17 Feb 17. Group of 4, lots of chat so for convenience we had the set meal for 4. Great value, really tasty food and friendly staff. The restaurant is quite small, although there is more seating upstairs. The menu is varied and the portions generous. This is a great location as well, right on the high... More

Phoned back to see what was happening and was told it was on its way. It arrived 25mins later. Some items missing and most items far from hot. We used to... More

We had a very pleasant meal for two. There is a good choice of either set menus or à la carte at reasonable prices. The choice of wine on the menu was very good, and we enjoyed a lovely Australian white wine.

Food was really nice and arrived quickly, we went for the set menu for £19pp, mixed starters platter followed by crispy duck then a choice of 2 mains with egg fried rice. Service was great and the drinks reasonable, the major downside was how... More

I haven't been in Kendal for months, but my visit, today, to this excellent restaurant was like coming home. The staff were just lovely. As for the food, I had chicken with cashew nuts in yellow bean sauce. It was full of succulent meat and really tasty. The rice was fluffy and light. Still highly recommended.

(reviewing specifically the takeaway, we've never eaten in here) I've never been a fan of Chinese cuisine and this place completely changed my mind. Their veggie platter is spot on, all fresh ingredients, made from scratch. no frozen nonsense, perfectly cooked, absolutely delicious. As a vegetarian I cannot vouch for their meat, but I stand by them when I say... More

We visited on business in the evening and found that the staff were struggling to understand English due to them being Easter European. They could do with brushing up on their language skills if serving people everyday! One of our party enquired about a certain sauce but the staff had no idea and didn't bother to enquire with the chef... More

Kendal mountain festival may have had to play apart in this! I was shown to a table upstairs. I was the only person up... More

Really poor. 'Crispy Shredded Steak' was indeterminate mushy chewy meat. Spring rolls managed to be both burnt and soggy. Lemon chicken awful. Avoid

The table was set with a spoon and fork at each place. My starter required a knife which I had to ask for rather than it being brought with the dish. My main also required a knife and, as the original knife had by now been cleared away, I AGAIN had to request one. As I began my meal I... More
