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.

Food is very good, rare to... 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

Had a very expensive 3 course meal at the Go Sun, which was too costly for what we received. A bottle of wine was nearly £15 & the meals were okay but nothing fancy. Very good service but had to endure a very loud woman coo over her grandson for the entire time we were there as it is open... More
