“Would not go back !”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We thought it looked good as was half full when we arrived and also had Chinese people dinning here !

The service was slow , no one smiled, not very attentive when my glass was empty for too long.

The food was ok , but not great , Ive had a lot better for a lot cheaper . Not very good value for many, not back ground music, no atmosphere .

Would not go here again .

“Awful experience”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Very long waiting times, followed by half the dishes being served and the others nowhere to be seen. After prompting the waiter to bring the remaining dishes, and another lengthy wait, all the dishes were served although the first dishes had become cold. After complaining the waiter begrudgingly warmed it all back up - que another lengthy wait. We refused to pay the ten percent service charge much to the managers annoyance; so much so he refused to wish us a good night unlike the other customers who felt too uncomfortable refusing the service charge. Dire experience, the worst Chinese ive ever eaten at -I'd rather have eaten leftovers from another restaurant in China town.

“The worst meal we didn't eat!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Went there for dinner and have to say that we were served with probably the worst Chinese food I have ever had. Wish we'd read TA first. :-(
Bizarre as was well populated with Western and Chinese customers.

“Worst Service Ever!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We visited this restaurant today and waited a stunning hour and half for our very dull and disappointing over salted and poor main courses. Service was appalling and the managements offer of one glass of beer on the house, too little and too late. Enquiries as to how long our food would be were met with a very curt "the chef is very busy" as if we were mere irritations rather than paying customers.
If the restaurant is too busy to serve paying clients it needs to re-prioritise and consider who is paying its bills.
We have enjoyed eating here in the past but will not be returning in the future.

“Poor”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Went on a Saturday evening, service bad, however they add an automatic service charge to every bill. Food was bland and tasteless and overpriced, wasn't asked once whether everything was to satisfaction as I'm sure they wouldn't have resolved the matter anyway. All in all don't go.: I certainly won't be going back.
