I have walked past this restaurant quite a few times over the last 25 years and never thought of calling in until recently, however I wish I would have earlier as the who experience was amazing. The food, service, atmosphere and friendliness of the staff was great. After chatting to a waitress she told me the restaurant had actually been open for 50+ years and with this type of service and food you can see why.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food, delightful experience!
Lovely restaurant, with a subtle Chinese ambiance. Family run, with a warm welcome and friendly service. Dined with my 87 year old mother who thought it a 'grand place' .
The only downside, for her, was the steep steps, which proved difficult to negotiate.
Recommended.

Found this place on the last night of our break. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food was fantastic. Lots to choose from on the menu and plenty vegetarian choices too.

I have a long stay in the city. And this is a place found through TripAdvisor. The food here is very good. Makes me feels at home. The chicken meat, the soup and the vegetables, all good. Since I am alone, the waiter recommends me to take small plate dish, instead of "up selling".

I ordered a set food, which include a starter, a main dish and rice. I also add a vegetable side dish plus a drink. It is above my limit a bit, since I have been longing for Chinese foods. All costs 19.5 Pounds.

Quick service, nice dining room and good value - 8 quid for the lunch menu. Oh, and the food's good too!
