“Excellent Cantonese cooking, attentive and personal service.”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Excellent pork soup, 1/2 roasted chicken, squid in xo sauce and authentic fried rice. High quality service from the waiters and visits from the management to ensure that we enjoyed the experience.

“Tasty”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

A bit quiet when we arrived but soon filled up, ordered drinks and were given prawn crackers with sweet chilly dip, ordered mixed horderves, delicious spare ribs, prawn toast, crispy chicken wings,crispy prawn wantons and a chicken wanton, served with sweet chilli sauce, no crispy seaweed though.
For the main course we had beef hotpot curry, very nice if a bit greasy and chicken in xo sauce, nice and spicy with lots of veg, along with young chow fried rice (a bit bland) but ok and crispy noodles with veg.

Overall quite nice meal, good portions and average prices.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Service was average, made more interesting due to the owner/manageress made to feel welcome and valued as a customer. menu was insanely huge like taking out the lord of the rings trilogy and made to read it in one sitting :D Looks like the place is undergoing a refurbishment so no comments here. Booths are a nice inclusion on the sides, food was great seemed fresh with no msg or additives of that effect (no dry mouth at night 1st time ever after a chinese). price was reasonable came to around 30 pounds for two of us including drinks. Read the first instalment now need to read the two towers defiantly hooked.

“Good Food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The service was excellent. Had my birthday meal there and the Restaurant prepared a special for us. Some of the dishes were not even on the menu and the food was excellent.
