First time in quite a while that I ate here, very disappointed, Saturday night, wasn't really busy, service wasn't great, seeing as we were sitting right near bar we sat about 20 mins with no drinks. Mixed Starters and Chrispy Duck were good, main meal wa a letdown - Char Sui hardly had any chicken, it was like tiny pieces from the bottom of a packet, Sizzling Steak-about half a portion spread out to look more than it was, 2 out of 7 dishes were put on table, turns one was not ours, then had to wait 5 mins for more, then veg didn't come for another 5 mins then to top it we found a long hair, well my friend pulled it out of her mouth!!! Definitely none of ours.
One guy left us desert menus and within 2 mins someone else whipped them away-felt like they were trying to hurry us up to go.
Didn't completely ruin the evening, but that was down to the company we were with, but won't be going back there again. If it wasn't for the starters being good would has dropped down to 1 star.

They have a lunchtime special menu which offers good value and the food on that menu is normally of good quality albeit a smaller portion.

After eating here my sister spent the rest of the day throwing up (amongst other things) in the bathroom.
The food was abysmal and extremally overpriced.
The food quality is lower than that of the average chinease takeaway and the portions much smaller. STAY AWAY!!!

What a terrible night! The food tasted just as bad going up as it did going down. If you want to have an accident next to your husband in bed or throw up until 8am this is the place to go...otherwise AVOID.

Been to this restaurant a few times as its close to work.

The food is quite nice but a little on the pricey side for what it is. Saying that I have not had a bad meal.

I find the place very cold though with very little atmosphere the staff are not over friendly either.
