I am down in the area once every couple of months when me and my partner visit our elderly relative and we always pay Kenny a visit. Look, the place is nothing special to look at but Kenny and the staff are just wonderful and the food is excellent. The chilli prawns and Singapore fried rice dishes are our faves.... More

We decided to give this place a try , so we had a sit down meal instead of a takeaway. We are glad we did. The food was very tasty and was brought to us with a smile. We have never tasted chow mein like this before. We also had beef and mushrooms and satay chicken both were also delicious.... More

Customer is King - a refreshing change. Great service and food. You can eat in or order take away. Both are promptly served by friendly staff.

Excellent food, great service and atmosphere but what is really special is the way Kenny always makes sure dishes are ok for my wife's allergies and is happy to amend a dish if possible

We Have been going to this restaurant since it opened. We travel 20 miles round trip for our chinese food. If you don't see anything on the menu you fancy tell Kenny and he will make you his own signature dishes. Staff are very friendly. Would higly recommend.

The unicorn is by far the worst Chinese take away I have EVER had! My order was Chillie and garlic chicken with rice and my partners... More
