Four of us went there last night for dinner. Had a great welcome. Turned out to be Chinese New Year so was offered free Chinese buffet. The owner is Chinese. Lots of Chinese decorations. Brilliant atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit.

When we arrived, we were at first ignored and, finally, we were asked if we wanted something. When we asked about breakfast we were told "We don't do breakfasts". When we pointed out their sign...

We were offered a pasta dish with salmon......my friend wasnt keen so the waitress went off and came back offering salmon... More

Came here for a birthday lunch with a couple of friends. The service and chat behind the bar and in the restaurant was very good, we had starters and mains and all come out in a good time. The food looked and tasted great and in very generous portions. The bar and restaurant are nicely decorated with nice views across... More
