    Went for a birthday and had a lovely time. Had reserved a table and were seated immediately. Waitress was very brisk but polite, pulled out our chairs for us and placed napkins on our lap, but asked us for our drink order almost immediately after we sat down. We then felt hurried to order our appetisers/mains as she came back very quickly to take our orders.

    The food was delicious and we were very happy with the (large) portion sizes.

    The dining experience was very special and unique to us, even down to the pretty chopsticks and the warm wipes at the end to clean our hands!

    However, we asked our waitress if she could pack up our remaining food to take away and then get the bill. She didn’t return to get the bill at all, and spent all her time at other tables. We managed to ask another waiter, who got us our bill immediately.

    Overall, it was an amazing dining experience and I can’t wait to go back! Our only complaints were with the service, which felt rushed and then very slow.

    Worst restaurant experience I can remember.
    On arrival did not seem to know I had pre booked. Eventually shown to a table. Tried in vain to attract somebodies attention to be given menus and order a drink. Then waited for at least 20 minutes for somebody to take our order. When I finally collared a waiter I asked him to order aromatic duck pancakes for 4 so we would have something to eat whilst we waited for our main. When it arrived it was Peking duck and at nearly £20 was a total rip off. Drinks arrived after 3rd time of asking. About 20 minutes after eating the starter we asked how long the main course would be. Were then told the order had not been placed with the kitchen so would be about 30 minutes. Should have walked out then but as it was a Bank Holiday Monday we did not want to start looking for another venue that could take us. Asked for the manager and the lady who came was very apologetic and said our mains would be another 10 minutes. What then arrived was mostly inedible and was left. Asked for the bill and in fairness we were not charged for drinks and some of the food. It was still £64 for lousy food and service.
    On refection I think they had geared up for a busy DimSum lunchtime but were not prepared for A la Carte which we had booked. All the Chinese clientele seemed to be well looked after presumably because they are regulars.
