Been coming here for a while now, although we've had the odd disappointing visit, overall we can't get enough.

The food is usually delicious and the portions are unbelievably massive, all at a very reasonable cost. The beer is also very cheap, it's here that I discovered Asahi which is the only beer I drink now. Soft drinks are cheap but always seem to be flat, especially the coke.

Especially love the appetisers, the salt and pepper squid and the king prawns are excellent! Even though we always over order and promise ourselves that next time, we'll cut it down, as soon as we see the menu again our eyes become bigger than our stomaches!

Service is scatty to be honest but it weirdly all adds to the charm. A lot of the staff speak very little English and the food is served as and when it's ready in no particular order.

There's often a queue out the door during busy times but it's well worth the wait if you're looking for something cheap and cheerful.
I just wish they'd have some music on in the background to add to the atmosphere a little

Usually I enjoy going to this restaurant for a quick cheap meal that is edible! On the 21st June 2014 my boyfriend and I went for a meal here and it was terrible! We got satay chicken which was nice but not great, spare salt and pepper ribs that genuinely had no meat on the bones at all and we're obviously over cooked! For mains we got a chicken curry which had raw chicken and uncooked mushrooms! Unsurprisingly I've woke up today with food poisoning! Is there a new chef? If so you need to get rid quick before you lose all your customers!

This is an excellent place to eat at very good prices, it is definitely worth the money and is a good choice for students. There is a lot of variety on their menu, so there is plenty to pick from.

Nothing goes better with Chinese food than Chinese tea, however tokyou refuse to sell it so you buy the flat coke!
Below average food served quickly and efficiently to students in Liverpool.

Came to visit a friend in Liverpool and she suggested we came here as it was the best. She wasn't wrong! The menu didn't make sense in places but the staff explained how it worked with rice options ect. We got the sweet and sour chicken and crispy chilli beef to share and they were both amazing! This place gets 5 stars for the food alone :-) definitely will be returning.
