The food is really tasty and there is a large choice served in consistent portion. Do not hesitate to test the Bo-Bun and the Nems are the best in town. We will try to come more often !

The restaurant has got something in terms of atmosphere, it looks great, you feel good when you are inside. And then you taste the food, it is for real. Really good. You will enjoy a proper Chinese meal Definitely worth a try. Only down point, is that the staff should try to smile a lit bit more.

If you like Asian food (Vietnamese or Chinese), this is definitely the place to go. The food is excellent, and the service perfect and fast? Quantities are more than fair, and prices are very reasonable.

We ate here whilst we waited for our ferry, having booked it after checking on Tripadvisor. To be frank, we just wanted something different to eat and fancied Vietnamese / Chinese. The service was very friendly and welcoming. We tried a mixture of dishes for both starter and main and they were, on the whole, uniformly good. The chicken noodle... More

We ate here on our last day in France after a two week trip. We wanted a break from the heavy French food and this place we happened upon. We had a curry and chicken cashew nuts. Everything was so fresh and tasty. Really enjoyable!
