Another very enjoyable meal. We have been visiting this restaurant for many years & would thoroughly recommend it. The service is very good & the food is consistently of a high standard. We always book a table & would recommend doing that.

Great food, excellent service at a reasonable price. The restaurant is always fully booked at the weekends which tells you how good the food is. The chicken in yellow bean sauce was particularly good. A bottle of Pinot for £16.99 in a restaurant is not unreasonable I would say and the staff are very attentive. Very convenient for the tube...

If we have you will know. -my bill was in mandarin with a final figure. Just as well I can understand it. But for other diners not good. Itemise your... More

I have always received very good service and impeccable food from this restaurant and I always look forward to meals I have here. It can get very busy here so it's best to book a table.

This Chinese restaurant is, in our opinion, a cut above the average. The decor is very clean and inviting looking. Although it was very busy when we went the staff had time to talk to us and made us feel very welcome. The food was prepared to a high standard. As vegetarians we sometimes find the choice of dishes we... More

We visit this restaurant fairly frequently. Recently we went there for the Chinese New Year celebrations and had an extremely good time. Food was a very good fixed menu for this particular occasion. We find this is a high standard Chinese restaurant and enjoy going there.

Was invited there for charity dinner, the food was very good. The starters were excellent with prawns with chilli sauce, it was very very tasty. The hot plate mixed starters was also good, especially the ribs and smoked chicken. After I had those starters, I was full. So good. I have lovely experience there.

Fab food, fab service, amazing menu, all beautifully cooked and presented piping hot on the twirly table centre. We all go en masse with the whole family for a fun foodfest of a lunch or dinner! Kids and highchairs dealt with expertly. The smallish restaurant always seems huge as they use the space so well, and slip in beside you... More
