“Very good at what they do”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We booked a table on a midweek as we had been told it was busy. Very glad we did. Beautiful food and very efficient service. The owner doesn't miss a trick either, he's very good at making sure everyone is happy and well served. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.

“Amazing food and excellent friendly service”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

The restaurant was packed even though it was only Wednesday. We had to wait 15 minutes for our table even though we had booked but the restaurant owner was very apologetic and gave us all a free drink of our choice. The food was bought promptly and was delicious. We ordered one of the set meals. Apart from being absolutely stuffed full at the end of the meal I don't have any complaints.

“Worst restaurant ever”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Visited here on a Friday night without making a booking. Restaurant wasn't particularly busy at all but yet a man named victor insisted on rushing us out of the restaurant. Table was cramped and couldn't strike a conversation with any staff as they was all too busy rushing us and frankly rude if I'm honest. Food was overly salty with no character what so ever!
Would not recommend at all and I don't know why people like it. If I'm honest even yo boe is better!

Superb food, superb service, faultless.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

One of the best Chinese meals I have ever had. Great menu, good service, hard to believe you could better this restaurant. Just different from the usual mush you get, you will not be disappointed.
