Visited during a week away in Loch Lomond area. Really lovely food and pleasant little restaurant. The best Chinese we have been too for some time.

Eat here with two friends and although 10pm saturday night were only customers! Food and service were good and wine was excellent so asked for another bottle only to be told we were too late as it was after 11pm. Can only assume they wanted to get rid of us and didn't want our money!

Another happy experience. Lovely food served by friendly staff. Enjoyed my hot and sour soup followed by the chef's special curry which is one of the best I have ever had. All the rest of our party enjoyed their meals and said they would be returning soon again.

The restaurant itself is pleasant and the usual sort of Chinese interior. The staff are courteous and efficient. The food is okay, personally I find it a little salty and the food quite florescent and the BBQ sauce is inedible. Money wise it's not unreasonable but to be honest a takeaway bag from a supermarket would do much better and... More

The food was dry and seemed to have been well aged. Not something that you would traditionally think would apply to tomatoes. We were corralled in like cattle to a restaurant which was damp and had tables covered in thick plastic. The table covers did compliment the food fantastically though and there was conveniently a court house across the road... More

The last time that we visited this restaurant we were a little disappointed with the portion size and quality of the food. We all were thirsty later on that night. This time we had heard that it had gone back to how it used to be so we thought that we would give it another try. We are really glad... More

Use the takeaway side of this restaurant on a regular basis and when youngest son is away at football, occasionally sit in. Great food, pleasant staff and nice atmosphere. One good thing is you are not harassed by staff asking if you are enjoying your meal, unlike other restaurants I have been in. Here's to many more years of my... More

I've eaten here 3 times now and each time I've enjoyed the food. My mouth is now watering just thinking about it. The service is fast and polite. It's always busy. Such a good sign.
