This is such a pleasure to read, thank you, Hicksfromthesticks18. Next time, ask to see our Set Menu options and our Desserts menu. Not many Chinese restaurants offer such a range of authentic sweet dishes.

No, there is not a dedicated gluten-free menu, although if told about special dietary needs at time of booking, the team is very helpful and can often help with particular requests.
