Went for lunch with the family, excellent service and we were served quickly even although it was busy. Food really nice and the menu had something to suit all at a very good price. We will go again. Well worth a wee visit.

No need for a Tardis in Glasgow. To be transported to the 1970's, simply go for a munch in the China Sea restaurant. Saunter through a quaint alleyway, feeling as though you're going to get mugged, only to reach the summit, and be ushered through...More
