Fantastic and authentic Cantonese food. Lots of choice, very tasty and plenty to eat. Chop sticks are a must easy to master. I would definitely use this restaurant again and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Cantonese food.

Ask for the Chinese menu, rather than the Western one, and bring cash as cards are not accepted. I would recommend the Kung Po Chicken, the Steamed Custard Buns, and the Milk Tea. Service is quick and polite.

We seen that the restaurant was full so thought it would be great food. It’s good good but not great. We thought it would be much motre orthentic but typical UK Chinese food. We’ve had better and had worse.

Very authentic food from either the Cantonese or Szechuan menus. We had the noodles, fried rice and Kung Pao prawns. All very good and true to authentic taste.

Surly waitress, handed us dirty menus and said “ cash no cards!!!” Food was ok but very old fashioned Chinese. Cheap and nasty service - just ok food.
