“Very hyped but very ordinary.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

I had been told that this was a good restaurant, I thought it very ordinary and a bit overpriced.

“Best Restaurant in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

I have visited this restaurant on many occassions both with my husband and on the last occassion with a large party of friends.

The all you can eat menu (£14.85 including 10% service charge) is exceptionally good value and the food is all cooked to order rather than in some chinese restaurants where it is help yourself and where the food is cooked in bulk and left out for some time and therefore cold and dry.

The staff are polite, friendly and welcoming.

The only downsides are that the the takeaway delivery drivers walk through the restaurant at regular intervals in full motorbike gear and the restaurant owner's young children often run the restaurant which some customers don't mind but personally when I visit a restaurant I don't want children running around.
