Tried the Sliced Duck with Mushroom, number 92 on the menu. Plus boiled rice, and a side order of Stir Fried Seasonal Greens in Oyster Sauce. Now that turned out to be mostly broccoli, but that was very nice. The duck dish itself was very surprising. It was great. Tender meat, plenty of it, not fatty. It was a very... More

This is the best chinese takeaway in Whitehead, the food is always fresh and I like the fact that you can see the chefs as they cook your meal. There is a good variation of food to choose from and occasionally there are new specials for you to try something different.

Order placed for delivery and it came very promptly. One starter and one main was more than ample for two of us. Very tasty.

Very good quality Chinese food, although best to phone in an order as they get busy and unorganized! Good fresh food but I did not like the curry, left a bitter after taste but everything else was fine and surprisingly not greasy at all! Reasonable priced!

Not a bad Chinese takeaway. When you call your order through in advance the vast majority of the time you only wait 2-3mins as they're preparing the final dish. And it's interesting to watch as the kitchen is right there next to the counter.

We ordered from their "Chefs Recommendation" list, number seventeen, Fillet Pork with ginger & Spring Onion in Oyster Sauce. Plus boiled rice. For £9.10 we found the meal was easily able to feed both of us. The pork was great, the meal tasty. They close Tuesdays. Open Sun, Mon, Wed, Thurs 4.30 - 11.30pm. Fri & Sat 4.30 to midnight....

Everytime I decide to get something from here, the order is never correct. It's the only Chinese that I've ever experienced this with. The food isn't even that great. Was lovely when it first opened years ago. Decided to try again tonight. Ordered a small gravy chip with peas and onions. And two vegetable spring rolls. Awful!! Chips were dry... More
