Stopped in here one night as i was passing, there were just 2 other tables seated. I had the soup & ribs, which were ok. Not bad for E8.

Me and my partner have eaten here 3 times now. I'm vegetarian and have loads of options. Delicious rices and tofu...my partner lives the sweet and sour pork and the ribs and beef. Very reasonable prices ...especially when I end up taking home half and get to enjoy it all again later. Lovely waitress with incredible memory as never writes... More

Never go to this place...the food here is disgusting. Starters were too oily, no resemblance to Chinese food.

We just walked out on the meal after the owner waved a knife at us and complained that we weren't eating her discusting food! The sign of the empty restaurant in a busy city centre should have been enough of a warning sign. From the start: I give it to them, this has to be one of the funniest most... More

We chanced upon this restaurant on New Year's eve and glad we did. The decor was so-so and the service okay. But the food was good. Not oily, not salty. Among what we had, the roasted duck and the stir-fried bean sprouts were excellent. Rice was served piping hot.

I liked it when I first ate there, it was a good Chinese discovery, after I lived in China and ate there again. I would say it's not the same expectations anymore.

We went expecting a buffet table to browse, as in England. There was no buffet laid out, and a rather abrupt lady explained in fast Spanish everything was cooked fresh, and brought out on a trolley. We said OK. The place had about 6 tables occupied, spread out. It started well with an excellent spring roll full of ham as... More

I went here with two of my friends for dinner one night. We all went for the menu of the day. My Chinese salad came within 30 seconds of ordering but the other two didn't get their starter until around 5 minutes later. Shortly after that, the waiter arrived with our noodles...and a minute later she brought out our orange... More

The Chinese food in this restaurant is very good and my wife and I enjoy eating here. The decoration is Chinese and is quite good. The chicken with almonds is very good and so are the noodles.
