Tried here as I saw a couple of people entering before me. Service was a little sketchy with the female waitress more polite than male. Lovely authentic atmosphere and clean. Good range on menu and very affordable ( i'd forgotten how much more you get for your money in the north!!) I went for the 5 course meal for £12.95.... More

Visited the China City on Faulkner Street on Wednesday. Had a satisfactory meal for £27.50 including a tip; salt and pepper ribs, prawn stuffing combination (tofu, aubergine and green peppers stuffed with minced prawn and a black bean sauce) with egg fried rice followed by red bean paste pancakes. The ribs were authentically bony but there was not sufficient meat... More

Just bad. Satay sauce was anything but satay, more a meat gravy thickened up. All the different meats didn't really taste like meat and was mostly inedible. worse quality of food than your average Chinese takeaway but twice the price.

Needed some things from a Chinese supermarket. Felt hungry and popped into this restaurant by chance. The lunch menu was just less than £6. Starter/main with rice and coffee or mixed fruit. All cooked to order and piping hot. Service was fast and efficient and enabled me to get back to work quite quickly. Would definately go again.

This was one of the only restaurants we could get in as they were all booked in advance. It was very busy but the service was still very efficient and cheery. There were not many Chinese families which was surprising but the food was of reasonable quality and not overpriced. Not the best that we visited but still left feeling... More

The food was lovely, shame that the waiting on staff didn't wish to communicate, disappointed at the end of the meal that we were charged an extra 10% for eating in, when questioning this we were shown a tiny minute sentence on the menu stating this. I would have gladly left a tip to that effect as the food was... More

Called in without a reservation at about 17:30, the restaurant was already busy, probably because of Chinese New Year, but we were immediately seated and well served by our waitress. A very large party came in and had a rousing New Year party at the next tables - the atmosphere was noisy and fun, with many, many toasts being made... More

Went to China city today for some lunch whilst I was shopping on my own. Even though there were empty tables, the waitress turned me away saying they were full. Clearly wanted parties more than one. Very rude!

Tasty food at reasonable prices. Very fast, friendly,efficient service. The crab and sweetcorn soup and Chicken Szechuan were delicious. The Peking style ribs were tasty and very substantial.
