I gave this place a second chance and I wish that I hadn't. Arrived 7pm, restaurant closes at 9pm. Most of the food was gone. Lots of empty trays that were not refilled during the time we were there. We paid the exact same as every other customer throughout the day so if they stop serving most of the food... More

Go quite regularly only because my husband thinks it's great. I don't. The staff leave a lot to be desired. I love lemon chicken but there never is any. Very rarely are there any popodoms. Dirty around the food containers & the floor. The area for ice cream sauces is disgusting. Everything is very sticky even the spoons. I have... More

We were dubious about visiting this place after hearing a mixed bag of reviews. But have lived in Grimsby forever and never tried so decided to give it a go on a Sunday lunch time. It was as expected- neither great but definitely not terrible. There is lots of food choice of the Chinese dishes and a few selections of... More

Excellent value for money, but food rather geared towards filling you up, rather than being the best in town, of it's type.

First visit to this restaurant - arrived and approached the bar for a drink, the lady serving didn't greet us, just stared straight through us. I ordered our drinks, she never said thankyou or even spoke a word. We stood in the foyer, not knowing what to do next. The "supervisor" lady then came over to the bar and said... More
