“Rubbish!”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

It was bad. We went for the 'eat all you can' menu -never again. Starters - just like fast food frozen pack from the supermarket. Soup, tasteless & salty, Aromatic duck the best part of the meal - just! Main meals - 95% was onion & liquid.
Restaurant now look tired and old - not like it used to be when we used to recommend it.
We'll never use again dispite being local.

“AVOID AVOID AVOID I CAN'T SAY IT ENOUGH !”
Reviewed 7 May 2011

God knows who wrote the previous reviews but my experience was one of the worst I've ever had in a Resturant. In a nut shell:-

Starters - deep fried rubbish must have come from Ice Land.

Mid course - one of my favs normally, crispy duck. However, this must have come from an anorexic duck because there was little or no meat.

Main - Beef in black bean was passable, sent the chicken back, if indeed it was even chicken! Totally unedible I had to spit out the small piece I tried - and I eat vitually anything!

Drink - diet coke definately came from a store own brand bottle. Carlsburg lager was flat and tasted old.

Service - slow and nearly rude when we complained. Manager did come over again and apologise and in the process stated that sometimes his supplier had delivered poor quality meat - GREAT! just what you want hear!

Cost: £30 - straight down the toilet - litterally !!!

Avoid at all costs and don't believe any other review on here!

“A great Tuesday evening”
Reviewed 7 September 2010

We went on a Tuesday for thespecial £13:95 meal.
A shame about the entrance but persevere up the stairs and you will be rewarded.
The food was freshly cooked and delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. We had been there ages ago and were a little apprehensive...no need. Why did we wait for so long? We will be back soon!
