I really love this place. The food is good, the service is ok and the price are extremely good for the (big) portion they serve. I go there at least once a week. Usually they take 15/20 minutes for preparing the meal, so it's not a long wait. Most of the time they also offer some chips.

Sometime it could be a little bit noisy, since the place is small and (reasonably) they try to fit as many people as possible. However, this never ruined my experience.
Overall, I totally suggest going here.

For Anglo Chinese food, it's very very good. I wish I could speak mandarin as there seemed to be more potential in that case.
Recommended.

This basic but satisfactory restaurant is frequented mainly by ethnic Chinese and we were the only non Chinese eating in. We arrived just after 8pm and waited 15 minutes before our order was taken and were told there may be a delay. We counted 4 delivery drivers delivering Take aways ordered by phone and it seemed that takeaways are their priority. We were 18 in the restaurant all waiting for our food the first of which probably arrived about 40 minutes later though they may well have ordered well before us. Our meals arrived one hour and 5 minutes after our order was taken, though when it arrived it was delicious. The other eaters in were probably all students and probably prepared to wait. We questioned several times whether Take aways took priority but were assured they didn't, the proof though is in the pudding. Use this restaurant as a Takeaway not as a restaurant. We may have been unlucky they could have been short staffed as I have eaten there midweek before with no massive delay.

This was recommended to us & having checked it out on TA we decided to eat there. Certainly not disappointed. The food was served piping hot & each of our 4 chosen dishes was delicious - just what we expect from a Chinese. Pleased to see so many Chinese people eating there too. It is not very big but has a good atmosphere and the serving staff & friendly & helpful.Also a plus point was the high standard cleanliness. The only minor disappointment was the china tea I had - it was fine but have had nicer elsewhere. We felt the meal was reasonably priced & the portions generous. Will certainly be going again soon.

Took about an hour for food to arrive. The also had two bottles on Gin at the bar and no Tonic!

Food was worth the wait, better than most Chinese restaurants i've visited so far in Plymouth. Would go back but its all about finding the right time
