“Excellent value when everywhere else is full”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Last minute choice on New Year's Eve - as everywhere else was full. Quite cheap but no atmosphere at all.

“Used to be a regular visitor - but not anymore!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

I've always enjoyed the food in the wokking, but after today's experience I don't think I'll be back. After placing an order and paying for it I asked for a cup of water, but I was told abruptly by the girl behind the counter that wasn't possible as the water was in the kitchen and the kitchen was too busy.
In hindsight I should of canceled my order and walked out.
Very rude and unhelpful.

“once a decent option - now rather sad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

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.)
