Fantastic food, brilliant service, good value. Although the dining room looks quite formal kids are made very welcome, even when they spill! Highly recommended.
Gets very busy later on.

“Please do not visit this restaurant!!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

My boyfriend and myself decided to visit this restaurant after noticing it was busy with people eating. As it was busy we thought it must be a good place to eat, how wrong could we of been!!!!! I ordered the sweet and sour chicken (Hong Kong) style and my boyfriend ordered duck pankcakes! Both meals were equally terrible, with mine probably being the worst out of the two! The meal I had was pieces of batter fried with no chicken!!! I also ordered a side portion of chips which were tasteless and asking asking the waiter twice for vinegar without getting any i gave up! My boyfriends meal wasn't much better and he said it was tasteless and a tiny portion with the pancakes being soggy!!! I would not recommend to eat in this restaurant! There was other nicer places to end in the old town with better customer service. We will not be returning.
