Had two chicken dishes, rice and a curry. Curry delicious! As for kung po chicken I could have honestly chewed it for hours. Unfortunately binned half as so chewy and old tasting. And when did they put their prices up and portions down!? That will be our last visit unfortunately.

Despite only 1 other table occupied it took ages for our order to be taken, after waiting over 30 mins still no starters so paid for drinks & left. Obviously more interested in the take away side of the business. Went up the road to the Lucky House takeaway and had delicious meal within 10 mins.
