Delicious food, excellent price and friendly service. The waiters were happy to leave us chatting between courses but when we needed anything they were always available.

    Extremely tasty food at a really good price. But make sure you go during lunch/dinner as it's like eating in a silent tomb when you go mid-afternoon.

    We were a large group and the food came very quickly. The staff were courteous and very happy to let us stay talking for a while after we finished our food. All the food was delicious.

    Fantastic dumplings. The wonton soup was particularly good, as was the peppered beef.

    Afternoon tea was a delight. Arriving at the restaurant there's only 2 spots for cars outside so you're better off parking at the nearby multi-storey.

    We went for the Afternoon tea option at a quiet lunchtime. The selection was good so two people can sample and share almost everything on offer. Highlights were the salt and pepper chicken and the hot and sour wontons. Endless green tea keeps you refreshed all served in a friendly and airy restaurant.

    Cooking was very good. Fried food wasn't greasy and everything was cooked perfectly.

    There is a surcharge for meals under £20 so bring a bit of cash if you want to save a few pennies.

    We'll definitely be returning for an evening meal in the future.
