We discovered this restaurant/take away after moving close by. Without doubt, it blows away all the other local takeaway Chinese options and we can't get enough. Great portions, fresh and well made. A great and sensible choice for takeaway should you ever be looking for one.

This place is great! Have used the takeaway service hundreds of times and dined in a handful of times too. The food is lovely and service is good. Not the cheapest place around but still worth every penny

We visited this small Chinese Restaurant while staying at the near by Premier Inn on a visit to Brands Hatch. A fabulous place. Small friendly inexpensive and absolutely brilliant food. Really nice people and well worth visiting if your in the area. Capacity approx 10 tables.

I used this restaurant regularly more years ago than I care to remember, the food and service were always excellent. I returned a few weeks ago and found that nothing had changed, the food and service make this Chinese the best in the area by far. Even on a Saturday evening the tables are well spaced and it is a...
