Came on a Wednesday night with my partner. We booked a table about an hour in advance and they managed to give us a lovely table. It was absolutely packed - great atmosphere. They have a good selection of wines, we had a bottle of Muscadet which was lovely. We had some lovely dishes at such a good price! Really... More

A firm favourite of ours and a go to place with friends and family. As always, a warm welcome on arrival. Even though lunch is much quieter than evenings there was a good atmosphere. Service is very good, drinks came quickly. Even though it is a buffet, you order each item to order which means it is fresh and hot.... More

We had the set menu on Friday night. Great variety of dishes and decent portions of very tasty food. Very reasonably priced and a great place to go with a group.

Good restaurant for professionals and smaller family groups, not really kid friendly. Had an average Chinese meal for 14 people. Enjoyed parts of it. The staff don't seem to communicate very well, we asked for our table to be cleared and for the next course bought out many times and each time we were left hungry. Spent just under 4... More

Well worth a visit - order as many dishes as you like from a selection of over 120 for a set price (17.50 pp on a Saturday) all cooked fresh.... Chinese doesn't get better than this for value and the opportunity to order a selection of dishes for a reasonable price!

What a disappointment, the food here was absolutely amazing. However we were told at the beginning of our meal that the group of 15 of us couldn't order drinks at the table, only at the bar which we were greeting by a rude waitress (like the rest of the staff) who told us we couldn't pay by card - fair...

Staff friendly and helpful. Food came quite quickly and was well presented. Good value. Ideal for groups celebrating birthdays etc but not ideal for this wanting a quiet evening meal.

We have been going here as a small group of friends for our Christmas get together for 10 years, which is a testament to the owners. However I think that will be our last visit. A number of years ago they changed from an al carte menu to an all you can eat menu. This has somewhat changed the atmosphere... More

We booked a table for two at the last minute and were very lucky to get in on a busy Saturday night before Christmas. We were surprised by the menu which offered us a very reasonable set price for an a la carter meal, with as much food as we liked. We had mixed starters, crispy duck as a mingle... More
