My boyfriend and I absolutely love this place. Make sure you ask for the buffet menu or you'll be given the main menu which isn't as good value.
The buffet is about £13.99 per person and you can order as much as you like from the menu. It's all cooked to order and brought over to your table rather than serve-yourself. So many dishes to choose from as starter and main and a choice of three or four desserts.
The service is lovely but the place seems to be more popular as a take-away - we have, on occasion, been the only people eating-in.
If you like Chinese food, as much as you can eat and freshly cooked to order, this place is a real find. Free parking around the back.

A regular eatery! Staff are the sweetest and most attentive! Nothing is too much trouble and the food is just lovely! Always fresh and portions just right! Atmosphere cosy and intimate! Fortune cookies to take home! Nice touch! Looking forward to my next visit soon!

Unlike the usual buffet style "eat as much as you like" menu to be found in some Chinese restaurants, this restaurant brings you your choices freshly cooked as if you were choosing off the main menu. I was in a party of 4 women and we chose a mix of 8 starters to share and 5 mains plus rice and noodles again to share. We finished with individual deserts. The food was delicious and for us the quantities were just right. The staff are happy to bring extra dishes on request but it is stipulated on the menu that you don't order more than you can manage. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was quiet so we could hear each other which was what we wanted.

My lady friend and I brought 4 of our friends here on Wednesday 2nd October.

We shared a variety of 9 starters: (2 portions of spring rolls; 2 portions of spicy spring rolls; prawn toast; chicken satay; prawn satay; and 2 spare rib dishes); 6 main courses: (2 varieties of duck; 2 varieties of chicken; sweet and sour pork; and a whole sea bass (= lovely!!); 4 plain rice dishes; 1 Canton special rice dish; and a noodle dish; some white wine; and red wine; and other non-alcoholic drinks.

Every single plate (and glass) was emptied!

The quality of the food served; and the excellent service was greatly appreciated by all, thank you.

Will always return to this Chinese restaurant because it is brilliant!!

P.S. there is ample parking at the rear of the building,

We went here on a Friday night as a family of four. Got a table at 7pm easily but by eight most tables occupied. There is an added bonus of a car park at the rear. Staff very friendly and sit down table order buffet excellent. Loads of choice, large portions with the kids getting the same quantity as an adult (for half the price). Desert also included. The food was also very tasty in fact the best I have had!
