One of the best Chinese meals I have had. The steamed dumplings with fresh chilli and soy sauce were delicious and as a starter more than enough for two. The sea bass with ginger was beautifully cooked and presented. The Isla Negra Sauvignon Blanc was a refreshing accompaniment. The fortune cookie always a nice touch at the end

Visited here a couple of times over New Year for Takeaway. Absolutely superb food, had the Special Fried Rice with Chicken Balls and also the mini pancake rolls. Even gave us a nice free calendar, great place and friendly staff.

Came here with the family after hearing it to be "the only authentic Chinese restaurant in the Highlands" and was not disappointed! The food was so tasty and very authentic, the best fried green beans i've had outside of China! Would definitely recommend the cumin lamb too but only if you can handle your spice.

Had the set meal option which was very nice at a good price. Staff was friendly and service was nice and quick. Only criticism is it was a little cold right next to the window and all of the staff weren't appropriately dressed to wait tables. Wasn't expecting a proper waiter/waitress but trousers and a shirt would have been better.

We were the only ones having lunch on 6 Sep at about 1pm and was actually quite concerned. We tried the newly launched Buffet lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and taste. The starter platter, aromatic duck, king prawn with ginger and onion and egg fried rice are my favourites. Would definitely recommend it for anyone who... More

Lucky Bowl wisely marks dishes as either authentic Chinese or domesticated to standard British tastes. This is good cooking and the Sichuan dishes certainly were as pleasing as any we have had in Chengdu. Chopsticks and bowls are provided for those who prefer them.

Food good but did not receive 1 off the starters. 40 minutes later received a package off what was meant to be hot and sour soup but it turned out to be a portion of curry sauce. Huagly disappointed with the service provided. Don't think I will be getting another takeaway from them again.

We ordered take away from here based on previous trip advisor reviews. I'm sorry to say we were really disappointed - food was bland, gloopy and mediocre at best. Stodgy rice, thick gelatinous noodles and sauce so thick it had a a skin on? Not authentic Chinese fayre in my opinion.

Went for dinner with our two kids after a long day's drive. Warm and welcoming restaurant with typical Chinese food. Was worried about some of the negative reviews but we were more than happy with the food. Fairly standard menu, well priced, fast and friendly service. I'd recommend the chicken with crispy noodles but would give the spring rolls a... More

At first we could not find this restaurant as it is located on the first floor and not the usual street level and as refurbishment was going on there was no street signage. At the top of a flight of stairs is this large well Chinese style appointed restaurant. We got a bit carried away ordering but it turned out... More
