Overall not impressed. As people have said in review's the staff are un-welcoming and I found them short and sharp and this came across as rude. The food portions were small although tasty enough and the prices were above average. I personally would not return.

Thought I'd treat myself to a take away knowing it would be expensive but expecting a delicious treat. The dumplings were ok. The soft shell crab was so dry and over done it wasn't edible and the noodles with mixed meat were the worst I've...More
