Please don't bother; just nowhere near as good as it used to be. The decor is so dated. The food seemed to have changed; so salty. Not tasty. Yuck.

Phoned in order - had to spend 10 minutes explaining our order due to difficulty in understanding - and drove the six miles to pick it up. Despite saying they accepted credit cards, they announced when we arrived that it was cash only. We then had to go to the cashpoint to get them cash whilst our order got cold.... More

Had been to this place when my family lived in Banchory a few years ago and always remember how good the food was. It doesn't look anything special from the outside and like many Chinese restaurants is a tad dated with the decor but see past this as the food is top quality and everything we had was delicious. I... More

Quality food & very attentive staff, only down sides are that the restaurant can be uncomfortably cold in the winter time & take-away meals are often delivered by an expensive taxi...

My husband and I just had a take away from this restaurant. The chicken with mushrooms and bamboo shoots was terribly bland, the chicken was clearly reformed and the bamboo shoots woody. My husband's beef was so inedible, he ended up giving it to our dog (he liked it). We have both eaten in the restaurant and ordered take aways... More

Doesn't look appealing from the outside and the interior leaves a lot to be desired. However, we ordered a platter to share as a starter which was excellent. The main courses were also good. Service attentive but not engaging. Only one white and red wine available by the glass yet there were loads available to buy by the bottle. Would... More
