Went in today for a lunch. Had a great 3course meal earlier. Plenty of choice for starters but was little disappointed with the mains. Only choices if you didn't eat chicken was beef curry or beef with mushrooms in black bean sauce. Dessert was fine. There should be a choice to have pork in place of chicken for some of... More

Comfortable and relaxed surroundings, unobtrusive and professional service from the staff and the food was beautifully cooked and nicely presented. Has to be a 10 out of 10.

We have been many times and know the owner well. We always find good service and excellent food. The Chinese 'turnip' (moolie) and steamed sea bass are especially memorable.

Visited this restaurant for lunch for the first time in many years. Friendly staff who are keen to make sure everything is perfect. They really couldn't have been nicer, attentive without being intrusive. Lunch special is super value for money. Starter, main and dessert for £7.95!! Only thing is dessert choice is very limited. Food is very good, rare to... More

Now a bonus point should be that the cost was extremely cheaper than most of the other Chinese restaurants in Ballymena. However if the food is tasteless and you have to throw everything in... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had booked a table which was lucky as it was very busy. The service was great and everyone was very helpful and knew the menu well. I can recommend the chicken curry and the honey chilli chicken. We would defiantly eat here again Thank you

Thank Emma S
