We have visited quite a few Chinese restaurants in the past few years and this is one of the best, though still not quite as good as the one that we regularly visit, the Jade in Sunninghill! The crispy duck starter was followed by a range of meat dishes, all of which were excellent (though I'm still not sure about... More

The dining room was clean and pleasant with good sized tables, fresh linen... More
