Without doubt this is the best Chinese restaurant in Belfast - the food, service and atmosphere are brilliant. The set meals for 4/6 are a great way to try lots of different dishes and would definitely recommend. It is definitely a little more expensive than...More

Been before and again the food was very nice, the portions were good but side orders were extra and £4 for a pint of coke was outrageous dearer than bottle of beer, added service charge for 6 people.

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions and it is our regular takeaway. It has never disappointed us, its friendly atmosphere and quality of food are great. We cannot say we have ever had a bad meal, we would recommend it to anyone.
