We were stopping here with friends on our way back to Newtownards from Bushmills. We rang ahead and booked. We should have been there in 20 minutes but when we got to Ballymena it took us... More

Had a meal in here recently and it was very good. The service was very good an the fresh fruit after the meal was a nice touch. My only complaint was that there is not a lot of privacy as the tables are very close together owing to the size of the restaurant. It's a pity this restaurant isn't open... More

I wouldn't go anywhere else for chinese food! Chips are home cooked, fried rice is fluffy (not brown like other places) and the flavours of the dishes are something else. The chefs are very accommodating as well if you want any changes made to a meal. The restaurant is a little small but the food definitely makes up for it.... More

Excellent Chinese food - good portion size, well presented & very tasty! Rib starter just fell off the bone, delicious. Staff very attentive and helpful. As others have said, very small, tables close together, cash only & only access I could see is up a flight of stairs.

Real love this place best Chinese in town. Only drawback is they don't have a card machine. After a delicious meal they serve you a plate of fruit. So tasty.

The food and service is of the highest quality. We are regular customers and would not even consider going elsewhere. The dishes are tasty, fresh and generous portions. 5 star!

We've been going to the Manley restaurant since we were children and the food and service never disappoints. Only draw-back is that no cards are accepted so you need to plan ahead and bring cash. Well worth it though!!!

Whilst this restaurant is small and they do not accept credit cards, the food is just about the best in Town.
