This fast food dine-in or take-away Chinese USED to be good value. But its been remodelled and reduced so much in the past few years that it bears only a pale resemblance to its former self. Now I only visit out of desperation.

The main problem is in the ingredients themselves. A stir-fry order used to have a decent amount of food, including many types of vegetables. Now you get much less in quantity and much less in quality too: no baby corn, no red pepper, no water chestnut, no pea pods... instead only green pepper, onion... basically whatever are the two or three cheapest vegetables on offer that month.

Please read the older positive reviews on this site with this fact in mind. I have likely eaten here 200 times... and still do sometimes out of lack of choice in the area. But it no longer deserves any sort of plaudits. The boss (who owns many other similar places in town) has become greedy. How sad!

(It goes without saying that there is no real Chinese food to be found here... only Irish versions of heavy salt and sugar sauces.)

There's no Hunan to be found here, but Wokking has good Szechuan and good quality meats & veggies. Ask for extra broccoli with everything - they cook it just right.

The lunch menu here is good, you get lots of choices like what meat what sauce and either chips or rice. The place is big too so plenty of places to sit.
