“We'll go elsewhere in future !!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I visited with the intention of having the lunchtime buffet and were told they were closing an hour early because they'd had a busy day!! Great!! We went back today with our 5 year old... Who isn't a fan of Chinese food and just wanted a Prawn Cracker. We told the lady we would like to pay for 2 dinners. She asked if 'the child was eating?' I explained he would have a couple of prawn crackers and might try a noodle. She told us that our son couldn't have anything off our plates and that we would have to pay for another meal.... So we left. She might want to smile when customers come in too, she looked as miserable as I felt at yet another wasted journey to this restaurant.

“Not worth thirty four quid”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

Visiting Dover Castle, decided on a Chinese found this on a search and decided to visit. The food was limited and not hot looked like it had been there a while. Why is it that a child is no longer a child once they get to 10 I thought they did not become anything different until 13 when they became a teenager although our son likes chinese he does not in anyway eat as much as an adult would. Please find an alternative I am sure you will be able to do so.

“Sigh...Not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

I have eaten at Chinese restaurant all over the world and this one is one that you can miss. The food had been cooking in the rosters for a while and was very dry. The worst pat was that we got there only 30 minutes after they opened. Even if the food had not been over cooked the flavor did not make it any better...blah is a suitable word for it. The restaurant is nice and so was the staff but everything else was not.
