Food is average but pricey. Ordered deep fried chicken, really small serving and expensive. And the slices of pork also little. They charge so much for little food. For mains, we had to pay extra 4.50 for noodles which was little. Nothing much to say...More

Place is clean, service is OK, however, quality of food is below average for the price you pay. We paid £130 fpr 4 people left hungry and unimpressed. Avoid.

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
