The restaurant could do with being refurbished but if you sit in for a meal in the day the food is usually nice. This all changes on a weekend night after midnight where you get charged 14 pounds for a very very tiny portion of rice/noodlesof and a drink. Do not come here after midnight!

Very expensive for wot you get and the place could use a good scrub however waiting staff are lovely and food is okay unless you go in on after midnight on a Saturday night and they are so busy they don't cook anything properly

on a wet day it didn't hit the spot for me. Very basic battered chicken with a sauce over and rice. Not very Chinese

Although not much to look at from the outside, don't let that put you off. The food was served quickly and of excellent quality. Offering the traditional range of Chinese cuisine and some Thai also, there is something for every taste

Always a great place for an excellent value lunch. Tends to be open more often than other eating places. Service, usually by local girls is superb.

Had a take away. It was a very busy night as most others closed. Quite expensive for what we got but food was ok.

The menu is a regular chinese food that you might expect anywhere, prices are regular not to expensive. The small bar has the usual Tiger and chinese beer. It is quite a... More
