What can I say apart from amazing as always!! You get what you pay for and yes this may be a little more expensive than your average Chinese restaurant but this is no average Chinese restaurant. Food is amazing and so are the extremely cheerful staff. A firm family favourite

Visited this restaurant for my birthday treat and was not disappointed. The food was plentiful and beautifully presented. Had a set menu and only changed the soup course through choice. Couldn't fault the food or the staff. Well worth the money for a special occasion.

Our first time there as a family; firstly the place is stunning! Secondly we were kindly welcomed in by fantastic customer service and smiles, which always makes you feel happy to be there already! The food was excellent, the portions are plentiful (delicious as well as enough that we could barely finish it). All in all it was 5/5 for... More

I have never visited this establishment, but a neighbor told me they were ordering a take away and would I like something. I perused the menu and chose a dish I had never had before, after frequenting many venues locally, in the city and further afield. I was truly delighted with the dish, a spicy delicate mixture of beef, and... More

Really enjoyed 2nd visit and will return.... More

Our usual takeaways were closed as it was a bank holiday so we ventured further a field tonight but it was well worth travelling the extra miles. This may well become our regular Chinese restaurant / takeaway. The takeaway menu is available on the website which was very useful as it takes the guesswork away when you don't have a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit here. It was busy with a happy atmosphere and we were given a nice table for 2 sat side by side looking out into the restaurant (our favourite position). Staff were very efficient - excellent team work - swift and friendly and attentive without being annoying. We ordered all vegan and had hot and... More
