The original Chinese restaurant in Ballymena. I used to go there as a child in the 70s and 80s . I hadn't been there in years. It is still very good - good food and service. There is a nice modern decor and it is a welcoming place to eat. Reasonable value for money too.

Best are the honey ribs but the satay is good as well. Chinese dishes are on the spicy side. Well worth a visit, the kids loved it.

Our table was booked for 8 o'clock but our food was served at 9.30. A one and a half hour wait!!!! When we asked to order more drinks the... More

Went in today for a lunch. Had a great 3course meal earlier. Plenty of choice for starters but was little disappointed with the mains. Only choices if you didn't eat chicken was beef curry or beef with mushrooms in black bean sauce. Dessert was fine. There should be a choice to have pork in place of chicken for some of... More
