Seemed to be very busy on the night we were there - constant stream of take-away customers as well as a full restaurant. Had a set meal for two - bit of a bargain, as the quality of the food was excellent, plenty to choose from, service was quick and friendly. Will definitely visit again.

Excellent food! Friendly staff! Authentic surroundings! We eat here both in the restaurant and takeaway for the last 6 years! We have had 4-5 birthday occasions here too! Amazing place to eat!

We visited this restaurant for a family birthday while on holiday. Two ordered the 3 course special which seemed good value and two ordered from the regular menu. The spicy soup was almost inedibly spicy, and the spring rolls were worryingly cold in the middle. We pointed out the problem with the spring rolls and the waitress said she'd let the kitchen know, but we weren't given any apology, replacement or money off the bill. Service was slow although the restaurant wasn't busy, we had to find our own plates from the table next to us and we had to ask for drinks twice. Although the food wasn't all bad, they were stingy with the rice and it was overall disappointing.

Although a Chinese Restaurant, my family ordered a takeaway. On approach the female member was so courteous and friendly and took our order, we ordered the set meal for 2, and shared it amongst 3, deeelicious, lovely starters, beautifully tender varied mains, even the rice and crackers were cooked to perfection, in fact I would go as far to say the best Chinese takeaway we've ever eaten, keep up the good work :)
