“good food, warm welcome and efficient service”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We went here in a party of 10 last week. The organiser had pre-ordered a set menu so there was no messing about trying to order. The starters were formulaic but delicious, the crispy duck was plentiful and tasty and the mains were interesting, and seemed freshly cooked. Some of the party had hot puddings which were reported as excellent; the portions were very generous also seemed freshly cooked to order. The only downside was a request for a red wine with a low alcohol content(11%) and the waiter brought, with a bad grace, a choice of 3 all 13% or above and insisted red wine was only available at 13% or higher. This nearly developed into an argument but the red wine drinkers accepted one of the wines on offer. Otherwise the service was generally efficient and not too obtrusive. We were the last to leave and were not rushed out.

“Good food, good service and warm welcome”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Ate with a group of friends, on a Friday evening. Food was really lovely, the service was good and we were very warmly welcomed into the restaurant.
The price was fairly reasonable too - worked out about £30 per head for starters and main courses, half a bottle of wine per head and a few beers.

“Simply excellent.”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Ambience and service was excellent.
Comprehensive menu.
Starters were made fresh and delicious. The batter on my prawns was light and crispy. The Shue Mai was great.
The main courses were also cooked fresh and tasted gorgeous.
A proper chinese restaurant run very well. Easily the best in Chester. Prices were perfectly reasonable.
Will definitely return.
