I think it has gone down hill some what since just a takeaway now, unsure why this is the case? Food used to be the best chinese in Elgin. Service was good. Now it's average.

I'd like to comment on the quality of the food, but it has yet to be delivered. Ordered through the Just Eat app. Confirmatory e-mail arrived at 1819; it's now 1954 and I still don't have any food. I phoned to enquire where my meal was and was told that they're very busy and that I should be prepared to... More

This has been a very good restaurant and takeaway with Chinese style food that was above average. It now only operates as a take away and no longer shines significantly above the others in the area

Myself and two friends thought we'd give the buffet a try after hearing good things about it. The service was quite slow but the food was scrumptious. Some fantastic flavours and a few taste sensations.

The food is the usual Chinese menu with nothing special on it, however everything is cooked excellently and we've never eaten a bad dish from here. Prices are reasonable, staff polite and the food is never delayed. Best Chinese restaurant in Elgin without a doubt

Visited this restaurant with takeaway at the front for the first time and ordered the buffet. Unlike other buffets, you choose a selection of starters from the menu and also main courses and these are prepared fresh to order, with the chance to order more at no extra cost. Not the cheapest of buffets but the food was very good... More
