“average food and clear racsim”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

i read an article in the paper today that prompted me to write this review as i felt it might have been a one off but clearly not. we to dinner here a few months ago with friends including one dinners asian girlfriend, she arrived first and was given a different menu to the one we were given when we arrived they took away her menu and gave her an english one. she asked for the original back as did 2 of our friends (who although being caucasian were born in asia) but were told that menu was no longer available, this is when they asked about the price difference and were told (even though one member of our party had been given that menu to start with) that it was a lunch menu (now i cant confirm as i only read english and italian but apparently the menu clearly said dinner). after all of that the food was ok but my local take away is much better and the beer lines have clearly never been cleaned as it all tastes off, i hate posting bad reviews as i want to give everyone a chance as i work in the industry myself but looking at this article today i realised this is a very racist venue and i had to speak up

“Racist Restaurant charges more to English customers”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

What a terrible racist place. English customers are charged more than Chinese people. Do not go. Stay away from this terrible place

“Racist Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Don't eat here unless you want to be ripped off, they charge more if you don't read Chinese. This is illegal :-(

“Authentic”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

we had dinner here and really loved it. I have eaten a lot of Asian food and this was one of the best meals ever. Really recommend the Sizzling Peking Duck. The environment made me feels like I was back in Hong Kong. Would definitely go back.
