Great Chinese restaurant. The food is fresh and plentiful. The service is quick and friendly. The wine-list is inexpensive and good quality. The room is small but the tables don't feel like they're on top of each other. The prices are very reasonable. We eat here almost every time we are Guildford and it is always good.

This is our second visit to this restaurant; both service and food were excellent.

The restaurant was pretty much packed to capacity and yet we felt like we had a private little corner to ourselves. We were waited on regularly, but not intrusively. All orders came quite quickly. The staff were very very knowledgeable about the dishes, and the food was cooked to perfection.

3 waiters gave us 3 different versions of which food was available or not. The service was terrible, the waiter really rude: the duck was burned outside and uncooked inside and when we complained, he made us feel guilty saying that normally people like that dish. It is extremely expensive considering the poor quality of the food, the slow service, the rudeness, the room.
I will never go there anymore.

We enjoyed the food but shame it doesn't come out at the same time, we were a part of 5 and the meals came out in drips and drabs, the manager got agitated when my husband mentioned it, said they had to wait for a wok, surely you would keep the rest of the dishes hot while cooking the final dish so you could bring them all out together. However the waitresses were very good and we enjoyed the food but wouldn't rush back.
