Was recommended by the hotel we were staying at and they were sooooo right, got a table of two straight away without a booking, wine and main meal served within 10 mins and it was stunning, the best crispy chilli beef ever. Had a nice chat with the staff after.

Went to our favourite Chinese for a family meal yesterday . Large birthday party spoiled atmosphere as very noisy with restaurant being relatively small. Would advise owner on having a functions room, maybe upstairs?
