We enjoy the food here lots however our order was not complete. Even though the waiter tried to "double-check" we had everything, we were missing two dishes of chicken fried rice.

We went with friends and all decided we would like the cheapest of the set menu's. It was a wonderful choice and provided as much food as we could eat. All was well cooked and presented. The staff were really helpful and attentive without being overbearing.

Absolutely lovely meal in an absolutely lovely restaurant. Such amazing decor on the walls and a great atmosphere. Food was incredible. Blond waitress was so nice and had a great attitude (also had amazing eyeliner!) Food was served very quickly and even my fussy grandparents said they would definitely return!! 10/10.

Have been a customer for nearly 15 years. Not been for a while but still as good as ever. not sure on why people are complaining. Probably down to a lack of understanding of the menu. E.g. Sweet and sour here is hong Kong style. Therefore it arrives at the table already covered in sauce. regardless the food is always... More

Fantastic food and service. The aubergine and hot bean dish was especially yummy. We have had takeaways from here before but this was our first meal in. We will be back.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your meal here. our booking on line system has a technical problem on the day so the system did not send you a auto response as it should do normally.

We have brought to you the best of the Far East. Our specialties are Cantonese, Peking and Szechuan cuisins'. But we also wanted you to feel that you are dining in a Chinese restaurant in China. So we have decored our restaurant in a way to offer you a pleasant time, added soft Chinese background music and exotic Chinese beer & wine at our Bamboo Bar. Our carefully selected chefs and staff have proven our success by our returning customers and winning awards.
