Eaten here for lunch a few times now. Small lunchtime special menu, incredibly good value for money and really good food. Highly recommend the chicken satay skewers and the beef in black bean sauce.

The website shows £24.00 for a meal for 4 people having called and spoke to a member of staff Nancy whom was most unhelpful. it transpires that in fact the information is incorrect and they would not honour the price which they quite cleary state..Very sad as i have eaten quite a few times here.Reporting the matter to trading standards.

Ordered takeaway from here two weeks running, gave them benefit of doubt the first time when food arrived cold after over an hour's wait! Rang and cancelled order second time after waiting almost an hour and a half without delivery! Food we had was ok but service on takeaway is amongst the worst I've experienced.

Having read the previous review I expected to have at least an average meal delivered. I ordered the shredded beef with chilli, onion and basil. It tasted very odd and was swimming in a murky brown sauce with veg that looked overcooked / past their best - sufficed to say I didn't eat more than a spoonful. The sesame prawn... More

Several groups walked in had a look and walked out again but they all missed a bit of a gem. this place... More

I ordered some home delivery from the Chinese King. I had crispy spring rolls, wanton soup, shredded beef with fresh chilli, onion and basil leaf, sweet and sour bean curd, and some boiled rice.
