The entrance is off-putting as you pass by the washing machine. I would never have set foot over the threshold had I not read reviews on TA. It is all about the food and the food was very good. The young Chinese Lady working there works her socks off is very efficient and keen to ensure you enjoy your meal. Deep breath in you go and enjoy the food, alas not the ambience or decor.............

We arrived tired and starving after a 6 hr drive at our cottage and ordered around £35 worth of food. It was promptly cooked and whilst it was edible, it really wasn't anything special in terms of taste or presentation. we went here due to trip advisor comments, but sorry guys, it was quite old fashioned basic over cooked fayre.

From outside you could be forgiven for walking straight past this obscure restaurant, I am really glad we didn't. It's very small and perhaps a little dated but these are the only negatives I can offer. The young lady that took our telephone booking greeted us when we walked in. She also looked after the telephone bookings, takeaways and served the whole of the restaurant on her own.

We we given a wicker bowl full of prawn crackers whilst we chose our meal and awaited the starter. We had a mixed starter for two which included sesame toast, seaweed, chicken satay, spare ribs and small spring rolls. All of these were delicious.

Our main courses were king prawn chow mien and crispy duck in plumb sauce. These were superb and the prawns were to die for.

We had three glasses of wine, water and china tea. Total cost was just under £40. Good service, good food at a reasonable price.

Ensure you just don't walk past!!

What a find! We were looking for something a bit different from the usual pub fare when we came upon this restaurant. Stepping over the rather unimposing threshold the place was spotless with linen tablecloths. Service was excellent and just the right level with only a short wait for one of the best Chinese meals I have eaten ( one of the set menus). The house wine was surprisingly good and the young lady who served us, very helpful and friendly. One of the highlights of the holiday.
