“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Having heard some favourable comments on the quality of the cuisine my party of nine "mature" diners had an enjoyable evening, we decided to take advantage of the set banquet and everyone was pleased with each course that arrived, there was more than enough to satisfy the biggest appetites, the prices at the bar were "Pub prices" and not the usual inflated "Restaurant prices" we will definitely return

“Fantastic food at a reasonable price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

This was my first visit to the restaurant and I was very impressed with the quality of the food and the restaurant environment. We ordered a set meal for 4 and at £24.50 per person I think it is reasonable considering it was a Saturday night. The crispy duck with pancakes was beautiful and I have found a new favourite Chinese dish which is crispy shredded chicken in a Peking sauce - absolutely fantastic! Unfortunately I cannot comment on the desserts as sadly we were all too full. The staff delivered a great service and were also able to provide recommendations on the food, which helped us to make our decision. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is also nicely decorated. Overall a fantastic first visit and I will definitely be returning!

“Beautiful meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Attended tonight with some friends, duck Cantonese, beef ginger and spring onion and chicken and cashew nut followed by coffee and banana toffee fritter,

Everything was cook to perfection and very well presented, the banana fritter was the best that I have every had, almost like a toffee apple but with a banana filling.

Staff and service were friendly and spot on

“Brilliant in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

We visited the restaurant for the first time since the refurb a few weeks ago and what an improvement! The food was amazing! Would recommend the toffee and sesame chips to anyone! (they sound odd but trust me they are amazing)
Brilliant service and they happily squeezed us in short notice on a busy saturday night.
Great value for money and the staff couldnt be more helpful.
The newly created bar area was brilliant too, a great place to sit and have a drink while we waited for our taxi.
Thanks for a great night, enjoyed by all.
