Noodles that come rock hard with no seasoning and plain as can be, honestly think they gave me super noodles uncooked out the packet, never been to a worse Chinese in my life, along with this the rice was doughy and horrible.

This restaurant has been around in Norbury where I have worked over 40 years. Whilst much of Norbury has changed this family restaurant has survived and maintained high standards.

Been going here for the past 20 odd years and its gone down the pan. Gone are the days when the place was heaving, food was superb and service was brilliant... Now its empty, food is below par and the service well.. They spend most time hovering around the bar. Its cold and unwelcoming in there. Miss the old hap... More

Food was not a good quality. Very bland! Didn't enjoy our meal but the service was okay. The food was not very appealing and it had put the dampers on our family as we went out to enjoy a family meal in remembrance of my in-laws
