Food hygiene 5. In my opinion the best Cantonese restaurant in Cardiff. Food cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious. This restuarant has been going since the 70s and is still as good as ever. The staff are also attentative, polite and give excellent service.

Fantastic cantonese restaurant within 10 minutes walk from Cardiff Central. Makes up in flavour and service what it may lack in atmosphere - but then if you're not bothered about having strange music butt in on your conversation this is ideal.

All of us agreed it was very very good and none of us could fault any of the food. We can only comment on what we ate which was faultless,we had soft... More

Friendly welcome from the front of house staff. Nice seating area to wait for our table. Food was good quality Chinese, but more like a very nice takeaway than exceptional restaurant food. Bit of a wait between starters and mains. Ribs were very nice.

I was there with 3 other people and we were all appalled how bad the fish in the tank are treated, yes some say it is only fish or only animal but if we have a fish tank should we not make sure that the fish swimming in are looked after properly? The fish's narrow tank was not having any... More

Booked a table for two on Saturday evening, the restaurant very busy with large party's, staff very busy and we felt rushed to order so we had set meal for two, food arrived which wasn't very hot even though they put it on plate warmers. Noodle, rice and lamb satay dishes were disappointing, not much flavour to them, and the... More

We booked a table for 7 people as a birthday treat having not been there for many many years. We were looking forward to an authentic experience as memories served us in the past. The restaurant looked as though it has not been upgraded in the last 20 years and was straight out of the 70s which in itself is... More

Four of us visited this well known restaurant this evening and were underwhelmed by the quality of the food. The staff were excellent but the magic of this place....well, a little disappointing.

Our first visit to this restaurant. We were recommended by our friend who had eaten there on several occasions. Sunday night and it was quiet but were greeted by very friendly staff and waiter gave us helpful info on items on menu. Lots of choice and nice to try different things. We had spring rolls and argau (prawn) dumplings to... More
