This is my favourite place to eat in Cork. The menu is gorgeous, I love the curry and satay. The staff are so nice and even though it is very busy you are never waiting long or feel rushed. So reasonably priced for fantastic food.

Was recommended this Chinese in cork from a taxi driver and was not disappointed. Food was amazing!!! Haven't had a Chinese like this in years. Staff were amazing and very friendly. Price was very reasonable. Wish they had one in Dublin.
