Ordered hot and sour soup, and beef noodles, veg noodles and schewan beef and egg fried rice. Good food at a reasonable price. Lots of South East Asian people so I think it must be authentic food. Tastes good to me. London Road Leicester.

Service is good, however, food not so great. I found all the dishes to be extremely salty and they were also very expensive with moderate portion sizes. Came to try, doubtful that I will ever return.
