“Great Food”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The two dishes we had were best we'd had in a long while. The pieces of chicken and meat were crunchy and not all stuck in a mass like some places. Tasted great. Chef even came out to see if we were happy. We felt the restaurant seating area needed a good clean though, with dust on the table legs, dirty finger marks on the menu holders etc.

“Looks are deceiving!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Me and my partner were in the area and were gutted to see that our favourite Chinese takeaway in nearby acrefair (won sing). A quick search on Google however and we discovered this place on a little side street in Llangollen. From the outside or the inside, it really doesn't look like much, decor needs changing, a good lick of paint although the koi carp in the pond in the waiting area is a nice touch. We had steak rolls and chicken satays to start which were nice, I personally wasn't keen on the sea weed, neither was my better half but the satay had a nice kick to it although it was a bit to "nutty" for my liking. Our mains were better than average without quite being brilliant (sliced beef in oyster sauce and salt and pepper chicken although the salt and pepper chips were to die for! A really good place, and a nice change from usual place we go

“It was raining indoors”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Would like to have said this little restaurant was nice but with a big hole in the ceiling and rain coming through all over the table next to us this just made it worse. The food was ok but a bit pricey and the guy who worked there looked like he had somewhere else he wanted to be

“dreadful”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

A group of us recently went for a meal here. The food was cold and the room was freezing. There was a large hole in the ceiling. We won't be returning.
