We were staying in the area and had been given race reviews if Dragon. So glad we visited. Fabulous freshly cooked food, all you could eat, without having huge dishes, so you could try different things. Service was very quick and friendly. Highly recommended! As is the walk along the beach at night after our meal!!

Love this place. Good hot food prepared fresh but you can go on a eat as much as you want basis provided you don't leave what you order. Each dish prepared for you when you order but they are quick, as all Chinese food is. Good atmosphere and service.

The title says it all. Ordered 7 main dishes and a few sides all very tasty and freshly prepared. Best Chinese food I have had in a long time.

I'm not a fan of Chinese food however it was for a friend's birthday. He chose here as if it's your birthday you eat for free! So a lot of people celebrating their birthday's..(good business sense to get a lot of birthday parties!) We all had the set menu apart from two people. They were watched like hawks by the... More

What a place. The comedy duo of Mick and Phil is worth the visit alone. Don't go to hard on Phil though as he gets a bit sensitive. Great food, service and sports bar.

Been here a few times, and to be honest I think this place is going backwards. We are all aware that businesses are trying to save on costs but sometimes it just doesn't work. Gone are the cloth table napkins, replaced by paper ones. Gone are the chopstick holders on the table, unless you ask. Gone are the warm refresher... More

The food is great and has lots of flavour to it and we enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is buzzing and full of people which is always a good sign of the popularity of the place..

So I went here last night with a hen party of 13 for the all you can eat buffet. I'd heard good things so was quite excited! First impressions not great. Very odd looking place and equally odd set up, pub on the left and lounge type restaurant on the right. We were initially say on 2 large round tables... More
