    Exceptional food, but slow service. The order, although read back to us, came out incorrectly and it took way too much time for the main course to arrive.

    We booked to celebrate my son's 21st and had a great time building amazing, good excellent and staff really friendly. I didn't realise you had to book the karaoke but that's probably me not reading properly on website so will have to come back and do that! Great for any celebration dinner. Thank you for your hospitality

    Booked for an evening meal and had the set meal for 2. The mixed starter was lovely which we both enjoyed. We then had the duck pancake rolls. The duck was great an plentiful unfortunately could have done with a couple more pancakes. The mains arrived it all looked pretty good chicken an black bean was great along with the prawn and vegetable dishes which were a bit heavy on the onions. Disappointed with the crispy chilli beef was not the greatest of tastes and was a little cold to be honest even on the hot plate. We ordered an extra dish of soft shell crab but it didn’t arrive until we had completely finished our main.
