A somewhat limited menu but the food was nice, limited drinks menu and they didn't have all of that. In general we enjoyed our meal.

Went in and stood 5 minutes before someone came in to greet us they had been in the betting shop next door. Ordered our meal and a lemonade each. The lemonade tasted scented and the meal was lousy. A complete rip off for the price. Stay clear

This Chineese restaurant used to be called Magic Lantern.

Desperate for something different to fish & chips while in Blackpool we walked into China Town... big mistake. It looked established and had other customers in - how bad could it be?

Well - pretty rubbish and a total rip off, it turned out.

Two set menus totalling £31.50 turned out to have about £20 worth of onion in them with a little chicken, some pork, a few prawns and some rice chucked in... Prawn crackers tasting like plastic on the house. The remaining £8 was for two bottles of beer and an apple juice.

Also had to go out to get cash because their chip machine had apparently just broken down...

Avoid!
