We shared duck starter then sweet & sour chicken and black pepper chicken on sizzling platter with noodles and egg fried rice, all food was fantastic! Our table was beside the takeaway collection area so... More

Phoned our order in and was advised it would be at least 45 minute wait. It was well worth the wait. Food was delicious.

My fiancé and I were in town whilst our son was at school and we thought we would treat ourselves. We left your restaurant feeling slightly robbed. The lunch menu is good value and I do wish we had opted for it but we decided to go a la carte. The food was tasty, although our dishes, both very different... More

Always had good food from here, inside as well as take away. If using takeaway menu I suggest phoning restaurant direct and collecting. The app they suggest has good days and bad as very popular with students and others. So sometimes you can wait longer for meal. Everything on menu great as far as we know and staff lovely.try it.

When 6 of the ten customers are Chinese people, you know that you have stumbled upon a good Chinese restaurant. This out of the way, but well signposted small eatery is a gem. Squeezed into an old low ceilinged Scottish building up a narrow lane it has few of the usual trappings of a Cantonese food house apart from excellent... More

We went to St. Andrews with our lovely baby , baby's grandpa and auntie for a nice weekend. Everyone we encountered in St. Andrews were so nice except one of the waitress of this restaurant. So our 5-months old son is always gentle and happy, never really scream or cry loud in public. But the short-haired waitress felt annoyed/upset right... More

We are now regular diners here, again, having stayed away when it 'went off the boil' a few months ago. It is now pretty much back yo its best, which is very good, indeed.
