Charming looking restaurant, great food and great price. We all had a lovely time and left feeling full, content and looked after. Will recommend to friends visiting Birkenhead.

Had a birthday meal here, food was average and not much choice for vegetarians, not clearly marked as to content but what I ate was ok. The atmosphere was awful a family shouting whose kids no older than 13 were being served alcohol.avoid in the evening with family.

Quite expensive for an "all you can eat" the second course came out before the first, the food was honestly disgusting. Greasy, tasteless, fatty. Not nice at all. Over priced, nowhere near what it used to be.

Top drawer food and excellent attentive service throughout. If you like Chinese food this place has to be worth a visit.

The buffet was pretty bland, and nothing to write home about, though plenty of choice to order off the menu, it came extremely fast and not exactly hot. Service was really helpful and friendly,interior was nice enough and clean. Didnt grab me enough to want to return.

Premade sauces drowning poorly prepared dishes are not worth the price. The owner had no idea how the duck was made. It appeared baked then pan fried. Dry as a bone. The servers are constantly overwhelmed. Even if the restaurants near empty I have had to get up and find my drink order or request for chili oil.

We love visiting this restaurant for lunch. The business lunch is £4.90 which is better value and quality than McDonald's. You get a choice of starter, main and dessert. Bill usually doesn't cost more than £15 with soft drinks. Lunch is from 12-2pm. The service is prompt and efficient. Staff are friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend.

The good is good but we were overcharged and made to feel uncomfortable. Over £80 for four of us, only two of whom ordered 1 alcoholic drink each and we had soft drinks. It was very busy and very disorganised when we went. Our waitress left half way through to go home, and we didn't get our drinks - but... More
