A simple restaurant run by a lovely family. My family and I come here almost every week. The food is always very tasty no matter what dishes we try. We always come here knowing we will have a delicious meal. The staff are very helpful and the service is great. Highly recommended.

Four of us ate at Wings for the third or fourth time on Saturday night. Yet again we were not disappointed. Ordered mostly from the Chinese, rather than English menu (with the exception of the pork dumplings.) Salt and chili squid was excellent - sweet, tender, with just the right level of fresh chili and garlic. We had pre-ordered the... More

First visit and not last. This restaurant was recommended by friends but always been put off because it's not in a nice area but decided to try it. Not the best decor and as other reviews say bit like a canteen but the food is brilliant and staff very good. Best Chinese I've had for long time.

The restaurant is small, friendly and comfortable . It is not luxurious seating but the Cantonese food is authentic . The fried Ho Fun noodles is highly recommended.

A regular eating place for me and hubby, the crispy pork is to die for, simple surroundings but the food and service make up for this, must try !!! You won't be disappointed
