The food was perfect and just right for the family. Not a cheap eat, but definitely worth it. The staff are helpful and accommodating. The view across the Clyde would have been great if it hadn't been pouring with rain. The deserts aren't exactly gourmet but then you don't go to a Chinese restaurant for the deserts. A definite must do if you are in Helensburgh.

This used to be such a great restaurant... Sadly gone down hill. Had a couple of less than great meals there recently but gave it another try. But another disappointment so won't bother again. Chicken chewy and gristly in insipid sauce .. Dry tasteless rice... Staff not interested ... Won't go back.

Enjoyed an excellent meal, with lovely views of the Clyde. Fairly expensive for the 2 of us. As always the service and the friendly staff were great!

Throughout my visit to this restaurant I had the feeling that my custom wasn't very appreciated. The food was o.k. and the view great. But the seats were really uncomfortable and the service which was rubbish. It was stressed and erratic and that despite the fact that it wasn't very busy. The bit that really put me off was the big sigh the waiter gave when I asked for a VAT receipt. Since I don't want to upset the staff any further with my custom, I shall happily give this one a miss next time.
