This is the second time my partner and I have visited here. Was hoping the second visit would have proved our opinion of the place different, but it was worse! We had the steamed pork dumpling, couldn't tell if it was the bad flavour or the pork was off. Tasted like dog food smells! Had the fried rice and the... More

Food was disgusting, service was dreadful and the decor is horrible too. WE had peking duck, dumplings and shredded chilli beef. Beef tasted like marmalade, duck was meh. Rice tasted like compost.

Although Chinese not my number one favourite Cuisine, this is where I like to go when I do fancy Chinese. San Choy Bao Crisp lettuce with delicious pork mince. Sizzling Lamb, Steamed Broccoli my favourites.

The local Chinese restaurant. Food is mediocre, just the same style of chinese food back in 1970s. Not a bad place to take out. Certainly not my favourite place to revisit.
