Consistently good food. Nothing super unusual. Just solid home style Chinese. Not too expensive and the lunch specials are great. Nice people, also.

Went last night and love love love the quality from when you are ushered to your seat to when you leave. I. Between these things, the food was beautiful with extra large serves.

Good for a group booking - they have a private room upstairs. Food was only OK - I think we expect more from chinese restaurants/menus these days ... a little more adventure, perhaps? Typical, old-style chinese food.

As always we were greeted with a friendly smile and were seated quickly. BYO is our preference and an Ice Bucket was prompt. No complaints about the quality of the food which was brought out as requested. Never any issues and love the staff's white crisp cuffed shirts.

We had takeaways from here. It was pretty bad - tasted more like food court Chinese. The wontons were so small we shouldn't have bothered. We were disappointed and won't risk trying again.

Variety of food is outstanding... More

For a celebration, and if you enjoy excellent food, this is the place. The highlights of our meals were the oysters (a selection ), and the lobster mornays. They are somewhat expensive, but we don't mind paying a bit more if the dish is so delicious that it stays in your mind. Maybe the food appears to be so much... More
