Great food, friendly staff and all at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for in a Chinese restaurant?

Food was reasonable, we went on a Sunday evening and had the "all you can eat" for £22 ph the menu was very clear "eat what you've got or don't go back for more" - difficult when there were more onions than anything else on the plate! I noticed this in a previous review, but only one night in frome and wanted something simple! Wish I'd gone to the Italian next door though!

First visit to Frome, and we chose to eat here based on the other very positive reviews. Although there was nothing bad, It didn't live up to the hype either - we've eaten in far better Chinese restaurants in other parts of the country.

The starter, a shared hors d'oeuvre plate for two was rather greasy and it took several attempts to get the staff to bring a finger bowl or damp towels. Our main courses were rather over-loaded with onion (always a cheap "filler ingredient) and though quite tasty were not very interesting.

Staff were OK but busy as the place was full by 7:30pm. We found it became quite hot and stuffy (not helped by all the sizzling plates) and it took some time for the air con to be switched on - in my view this should be on all the time when that sort of food is being served. Our clothes reeked of Chinese food for the rest of the evening - fortunately we weren't going onto anywhere where that would have mattered.

Note for wheelchair users - the lift from the street level was out of order at the time of our visit (29-Jul-2017).

Delicious is the only way to describe this place. I have been coming here for years - the only downfall is if you wish to have the buffet service - this has really gone downhill annually with smaller portions and higher prices but a la carte and takeaway and delivery are all stunning.
