Good quality Takeaway. Free Prawn Crackers with our collection. Delicious Butterfly Prawns. Excellent Beef in Chilli and Black Bean Sauce. We also had the Chicken in Ginger and Spring Onion and tasty Noodles. Hot, freshly cooked and good portions, plenty for two. Recommended.

Food was excellent, service was excellent. Not able to fault at all. They do wonderful crispy seaweed, and the Chinese tea is very good. You must go in if you haven't, otherwise you won't know what your missing.
