We chose this restaurant as it was one of the few Chinese restaurants as opposed to take-aways in the area. The staff were friendly, and the atmosphere was good; details such as sweets in a red packet for Chinese New Year were welcome for us...More

The worst meal I have had in years. Bland, greasy, slimy and chewy. To be fair the staff were polite and the general vibe of restaurant was ok. But the food was terrible and overpriced. There are far better options for eating out in Frome.

I went there by myself while away on business, the service was excellent, the food very tasty. I didn't have the buffet, at £21.95 I thought it a little pricey and possibly a little more than I wanted. I'd recommend it.
