“Slow service and pricey”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Have been to this restaurant last summer and as so good decided that a return visit was due.
To be fair it was busy, not an empty seat in the house, but found service to be very slow. Drinks came quickly but half hour before we could order starters.
They did arrive promptly but again a long wait before we could order mains.
Food was not as good as last year but ok, no complaints.
We were a party of six, all had a couple rounds of drinks but a little surprised at a cost of £42 per head especially that we did not over order.
Would probably not visit again.

“Food great; service lacking”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Had another great meal here however once we had ordered it was very difficult to get service from staff, also left without coffee, even though it was paid for, as it seemed too much like hard work trying to get staff attention. Love the food though.

“Poor service, ok food”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Attended the restaurant with a group of friends on Jan 31st and knowing full well it was the Chinese New Year so I was looking forward to a good night. Once seated we were left to peruse the menu for about 30 minutes and not even asked if we wanted any drinks. Finally the waitress came over who took our drink order which I must say took forever to arrive. The starters were ordered which arrived after being at the restaurant for an hour. Once the mains were ordered they then took another hour to arrive. Having been at the restaurant now for 2 hours and only receiving 1 round of drinks I requested another. The crazy part was that we were sat next to the bar area and believe it or not took the waitress 20 mins to get our drinks. This was my first experience at this restaurant and to be honest it will be my last. You would think being the Chinese New Year they would have had more staff on but then again maybe the service is always this poor. The food was only ok and nothing special. Pricey for what it was and the staff were not smiley or friendly at all. All in all very average for food with very poor service.

“Good but pricey”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

If you're looking for a cheap Chinese this isn't for you. Set menu is reassuringly expensive but the quality, portions and service is second to none. Worth treating yourself to a YY meal now and then or let someone else pay! Recommended.
