We visited this restaurant whilst staying with family on our trip from Spain. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it! There were 10 of us, including 3 children under 12, and we had a large, round table with a Lazy Susan in the middle. We had a selection of starters first and these were delicious. We then... More

Bit of a late choice on a Saturday night but we managed to get a table for 4 even though they were fairly busy. A very friendly welcome, a nice selection on menu and I must admit I felt absolutely stuffed when I left. It would be nice if they offered a taster of some of there items as you... More

This review is based on my experience on the day, so could be different for you. Attended this restaurant for a friends chosen birthday meal. Ok a Chinese "eat as much as you can for £19" is nothing new, but when it is cooked for you, after you have ordered, starters, then main, then sweet, with a good selection and... More

Went here with friends for one of my friends birthday. The company was excellent as usual but the service wasn't particularly good unfortunately. Too many trying to serve you at once and forgetting your drinks and some of the food. The food was good apart from the chicken satay that was tough as old boots. Proberbly been cooked for hours!....

Came here for my sisters birthday with the family on a Saturday night. With 10 of us, we were given a large round table. Ordered off the set menu. Seemed the food was never ending! Food came out fresh and tasted fantastic. Great experience. Will definitely be returning.

I've been here twice with a friend who loves the place. That said, he has a condition that numbs some of his sense of taste! If you're hungry and on a low budget, it's ideal as the food is piled high and cheap. Mostly the cuisine is straight from a deep fat fryer and quite greasy. For me it lacks... More

However the last 2 times we went was completely different! Food was still good but the service well......rude hurried and almost seemed annoyed that we were there! This place is lovely but... More

I work in the hospitality industry and have eaten in this local Chinese restaurant a number of times. My advice would be to avoid Friday and Saturday nights. Avoid going as very large groups on these nights as well. The food has improved somewhat over the last year or two. As others have said the starters are a bit deep... More
