“What a Lovely Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Just visiting the North East and must say we had a great experience eating here. The staff were helpful and friendly, the food was excellent and the final bill with wine and beer very acceptable. We chose from the main menu with starters and mains plus sides and the food was excellent. The waitress helped us choose a good combination of dishes and it must be one of the best Chinese Meals we have eaten in a long time. Good portions and cooked just right. Highly recommended. Easy parking nearby.

“Don't judge a book by its cover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

We ate there with our 3 children after a short road trip we decided on Chinese and consulted trip advisor for our nearest restaurant. Food was delicious and well priced the Cava was perfectly chilled & the service was top!
Inside the decor was very much in keeping of many Chinese restaurants with elements of Feng Shui (something I have a particular interest in). Their money toad facing the door as customers come in designed for good wealth & fortune...from the outside you perhaps may not think it so good - you would be wrong.
Lovely evening we will definitely go back, it's a shame we don't live locally as they also have a very busy takeaway.

“very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

I hadn't ate here since I was 16 and I am now 62. Revisited Chester-Le-Street on way back from races with 3 others.Place hasn't changed much although name has changed several times. Remains a solid option though if you want good quality decent food. We all went for the £10.50 4 course special. Together with two bottles of wine the bill of £70 was an excellent value with great service and attention thrown in. Will try not to leave it so long for my next visit.

“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Four of us ate here a couple of weeks ago and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We all had the four course special - £10.50 per head. Soup, appetiser, mains and coffee.

Good size portions and very tasty. The surroundings are a little tired, but don't let this put you off. The service was very good. Definitely worth a visit.
