Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Always a first class meal. Great range of food, but we go for the set meal which is ideal for the two of us with a good mixture of dishes. Service good as long as your not in a rush at busy times. Looking forward...to going again.More

Visited here a few times and the food is delicious and the set menu is good value for money, the prawn crackers could be a little fresher seems they are sitting open for a while. Staff are lovely although sometimes can be a little slow...as it seems only certain staff take drink order and others for food. Nonetheless we enjoy our visit every time :)More

This is by far the best sit down Chinese restaurant in Swansea. I’ve had a takeaway from here but I find the food much nicer to sit it and enjoy it freshly cooked. The staff can’t do enough for you, it is very reasonably price...my only suggestion is that it could do with a revamp but don’t be put off but the decor because the food is absolutely amazing. I definitely recommend the ribs to start as they are the best I’ve ever tasted. Overall experience in here is amazing and always is can’t wait to visit again.More

Haven't been here in over a decade and very pleased to say that the food hasn't changed and it's still great as is the service. Reasonably priced too. Must try the fillet steak in Cantonese sauce!

Walked in tonight (Saturday) at 9:30. "Sorry, we're closing, the chef has left. We can do you a takeaway". I can't see how that could work. We have tried many times to eat here over some years now. They always seem to find a way...to be closed. No problem chaps, we won't try again.More

Attended with my 3 younger children and grown up son and girlfriend. The kids loved the lazy Susan in the middle of the table and afforded them to help themselves to as much variety as they wanted. It’s a good old fashioned sit down Chinese...and was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening. The food was really good especially the ribs and duck. The service was great too. Can’t fault it.More

We were so pleased to return to this restaurant which we discovered a couple years ago on a previous visit to Swansea. We went for the set meal for 4 ,copious portions of excellent quality food. Starters were spare ribs which don't normally float my...boat but these had plenty of tender meat. Then came the main dishes which were absolutely delicious. All washed down with Chinese tea. The service was impeccable and attentive as we remembered. The little Chines bridge from the reception to the main restaurant, the decor, napkins which match the chairs just ooze quality. And who can forget their trademark waterfall window which gives the impression of pouring rain. Which it often does in SwanseaMore

Poor decor, not very clean, like stepping back to 80’s Just does not give a good experience … the ‘waterfall’ window has been in place for decades and looks very grubby …. Just not a good experience.

Had a Family meal here recently. I can’t say I was overly impressed! I found the place grubby and in need of a lick of paint. Food average, poor understanding Staff. Go to the best Cantonese in the World, The Riverside in Cardiff!

so we were recommended this place by friends, after looking up the reviews we thought they were ok a few bad reviews but nothing major. Please avoid this place I love my food and this was by far the worse I’ve ever had in my...life.. Firstly the curry was like soup, the chicken balls were full of grease and the chips well I probably could have fed my 3 year old them there was so little, £45 I spent there I would have rather starved. this place has gone to the dogs… so disappointedMore
