My friend and I were in the area and found this place in an online search.
We weren't disappointed. The owner was lovely and friendly.
We had one of the set menus... The food was very cheaply priced for massive portions! Great selection, we had to take some of the food away with us as it was just too much.
Give this place a go!

We visited tonight after reading other diners’ reviews on the restaurant. We were blown away by the owner’s friendly banter, the food, service and value for money. We had set menu D for two people and were embarrassed to admit defeat, but we were given takeout boxes so the superb chef’s efforts did not go to waste. The portion sizes are extremely generous so, be sure to go hungry.

Made a telephone booking and on arrival was warmly greeted by Jim. Such a lovely run family business. With his wife in the kitchen and his son a waiter making a great team.
We both had hot and sour soup. Best ever. Served along with fresh prawn crackers.
We had a mixed selection of starters. Followed by a generous portion of crispy duck and pancakes.
Mains included crispy beef. Prawns. Chicken rice and noodles all hot and tasty dishes and presented beautifully.
Thank you all for a lovely meal

We wanted a Chinese restaurant in the town and this was nearest and had good reviews.

From the outside it is unimpressive: next to a Toyota dealership with double decker buses to Norwich buzzing past frequently, but inside the welcome is warm. The owner is all smiles and interesting to talk to. As a cafe owner myself, it was helpful to exchange notes.

The food is excellent and fantastic value. This really is a most impressive restaurant.

My daughter and I have recently enjoyed a meal here. It's not been our first visit we have been a few times, but that was before lockdown. I am so happy to say the food is just as delicious as before.
You could easily drive pass this restaurant and not even really know about it its a real hidden gem. The food and wines are all reasonably priced. The service from the husband and wife team is so friendly and very welcoming nothing seems too much trouble..that has been the case every time I have been.
If you go and have a meal there I know you will return for another.
