“Basic but food ok”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Went for the first time with a group of six early evening on a Saturday night. Hadn't pre-booked but got a table easily enough. The furnishings are pretty basic and the toilets although clean enough are requiring some money spent on them. We were served very quickly and the service was also good. I found the food to be ok and the kitchen is open to view and therefore all the food is freshly prepared. Unfortunately this restaurant does not have a licence to sell alcohol. Not much better than average in my opinion

“You pay what you get”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

Prices are cheap and portions are big, but won't be top quality, just standard. Servicing isn't that great, staff doesn't seem to know what customer service means. Definitely not child friendly, no high chair etc, so avoid if you got small kids.

“Great”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Just as the other reviewers said excellent. We had the £9 meal for two. Lots of food (always good) freshly done. Lemon chicken might have been fried one before but fine. full of chinese people which is always a good sign. Good cheep quality meal.

I've been here a few times , and the food is always delicious, service is efficient , but decor is not the best , that's what to expect with this fast food canteen style place , certainly everything is quick and efficient
