Decided to try again after a nice meal three years previous, looked very promising after a warm welcome, placed our order and waited and waited and waited......45 minutes for our starter, 20 minutes for soup, 20 minutes for duck and 15-20 minutes for the mains. But was it worth the wait I hear you ask....NO it wasn't, all bar two of the main dishes lacked flavour, duck wasn't crispy, ribs were greasy with no sauce, bang bang chicken sauce was grey and appeared watered down and the hot and sour soup, although tasted ok did'nt taste like any hot and sour I had eaten before.
The staff were all friendly but a couple of them appeared to be clueless, could we have some plates please and could we have some finger bowls etc etc.
The problem I think was, it was New Years Eve and they were doing far more takeaways than restaurant service and I fear we got the short straw in the restaurant.
The staff were very apologetic and even gave every table a bottle of wine as a thank you (for staying I think), but I think they should concentrate on one or the other or get more staff, its a shame, it used to be the best Chinese in Cornwall, now its just like any other, no better than your average takeaway.
