“Great value!”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

This restaurant offers eat as much as you soul like from the menu for. Set price of little over £10! all the food is still fresh and cooked to order so not like your typical buffet as food is hot and fresh! Great value food and drink but atmosphere was lacking. Felt like I was in a Library!

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 via mobile

As a huge Chinese fan, who has eaten in restaurants all around the world, I must say the food we had was delicious. The staff were lovely and friendly and didn't charge us for our 4 and 2 year old children and even gave them ice creams for free. The food was extremely fresh, especially the salt and chilli king prawns and spare ribs in Peking sauce. It was desperately quiet on a Sunday lunch time but it was refreshing not to feel rushed and worried about the kids disturbing anyone else. The drinks were pricey though but you get that in most restaurants nowadays. Honestly give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

“Plastic plates, flat Coke and scruffy waiter!”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

As a previous customer over some months (last time was our 4th visit), I can honestly say this place is going downhill fast. First time we went, the service was good, the place was bright and the staff friendly.

This time?: flat pint of coke at £2.20, sent that back. She tried saying it was out of a bottle, but Coke doesn't come flat. Out our party of 7 people, 5 didn't touch their chicken and sweetcorn soup, as it didn't taste of anything. The other 2 had sour/hot soup, which, to be fair, was nice.

The whole eating off plastic plates/bowls feel like your at a kid's birthday party. The place was more drab too, with the male waiter coming out with greasy hair/un-ironed shirt. On the first visit, I honestly can't remember whether it was plastic plates, because the ambiance was far superior, but because it has gone downhill so much, the cracks are starting to appear.

There is a recession on and you cannot afford to offer standards like this. For a bill well over £100, this was not worth it at all. I live in Leeds and was visiting family, and our local take-away does miles better food than this.

Raise your standards back to the way they were, or prepare to be shut in 6 to 8 months.....

An ex-customer.

“Opened just for us!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2012 via mobile

We recently dined as a party on 13 for a 21st birthday. We ate on a monday and the staff opened the resturant, which is normally closed on mondays, just for us! I like the idea that u can have as much as u like of wat u like and they bring it to you! Its great if u wNt alot of something or loads of different things!!! And for £12.50 ots a great deal! I had sbout 4 starters and 2 mains! Yummy yummy!
However the staff were distant and things came in drivs and drabs
Id still go back!!!

Reviewed 10 June 2012

Went here for our anniversary the food was ok and freshly cooked can't really fault the food what we found fault with was the drinks bill 3 glass of white wine and soda and a pint and a half of coke came to £14.50 it was just £1.50 less then the food bill so it was a bit excessive to say the least, we'll not be back here in a hurry
