“Best Chinese food i have had in a long time!”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

We shared the Chinese tea which i would recommend to anyone..

Got crispy duck to start which was lovely.. plenty for the 4 of us to share and the plum sauce was delish!

then i had the beef with satay traditional Chinese dish, it was amazing! the beef was tender and obviously of high quality and the sauce was just lovely!

extremely good price for what we got

def worth a visit..

“Good food, poor service”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

My family and I used to visit the restaurant regularly and were always impressed with the quality and price of the food. Very tasty dishes in the main, well-cooked and to a good standard.

Unfortunately, we decided to stop visiting after one too many experiences of unfriendly and slow service. I am not sure that I have ever been to a restaurant with such overtly unfriendly servers.

The interior of the restaurant is also desperately in need of updating, during one visit an ant trap was visible in the front window!

“one of the two best cantonese reataurants in Leicester”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

An excellent dim sum menu served at lunchtimes with some very unusual but very tasty dishes all reasonably priced.
If you like cantonese food this is one if the two "musts" and gets very busy at lunchtimes with ethnis chinese people.
