Just had a spicy beef. ..it was sooooooo good. Used the Wan Tan to clean up the plate til the last drop off blackbean sauce. Delicious! !!! Staff is friendly, pricing is in the ok range. Worth a visit.

The food here is excellent, great choice on the menu , quality ingredients and good size portions ohh and served pipping hot! The service we experienced as a family was excellent too.The only downside for me was it was a little cool in the restaurant and cold upstairs, but overall highly recommended - you will not be disappointed!

Went on a aaturday night as every other place in town booked up, only a couple of tables occupied all Eve which says it all. Food good, service bad although very friendly.... Asked for bottle of wine, it was put on table unopened, no glasses, asked for glasses and given a couple and told if wanted anymore to get them... More

Never had a Chinese meal like it before. Beautifully fresh, good quality ingredients. Nice welcome and served with a smile. And on top of that it was very reasonably priced. Worth going back to Leek for!!

Don't be put off by the exterior, very nice inside and the food is first class, especially the crispy duck. Service to match and great value.

What a lovely surprise to find such a good and friendly restaurant in such a small town. The husband and wife team have been there 15 years .He was originally a Hong Kong chef apparently there is a difference to mainland Chinese.The food was really delicious.

The fact that this is the only Chinese restaurant in Leek makes no odds.We are veterans of Manchester and London China towns, and this establishment compares favorably to most restaurants at either of the mentioned cities. We nearly always use the Laurel Inn for take aways and have been to the restaurant on several occasions.

Thank NibblyNobby
