From entering the restaurant to leaving we were treated with such friendliness, courtesy and even though it was busy, promptly. They catered for my dietary needs without fuss and the food was delicious. Certainly be going again.

Amazing food. Best Chinese in the area by far. All the dishes are full of flavour and so fresh. The king prawn baskets are to die for! Always made to feel so welcome, greeted with big smiles and so attentive.
