Fab night taking the kids to try a Chinese restaurant for the first time. The staff and food were great. A fab experience for the kids and they got to eat lots of food they wouldn’t normally of tried. Thank you for making us all welcome we will certainly be bringing them back!

What a fantastic evening. The offer for children to eat free enabled us to bring our children out to try Chineese food with out the worry that they wouldn’t eat much and be a waste of money or food. Everyone had a lovely evening.

I booked a table in advance to celebrate a family Birthday. Food, never ever disappoints, delicious as always, it took over 35 mins for our initial food orders to be taken though once placed the food arrived in a timely manner. My only criticisms would be that there isn't a facility for guests to pay individually causing complications at the end of the evening with the bill when there is a large group of people. I took a cake that needed to be kept chilled, was advised that it would be placed in the fridge, and then to my dismay found that it had been left behind the bar for the entirety of the evening, causing the cake decoration to spoil and making it difficult to cut when the time came. The price has increased since my last visit to £23 pp, more expensive than Mr Wings, so whilst this is most definitely a good choice, with drinks included it can be an expensive choice. 1 of our guests left after starters had been served due to an accident with red wine, and the full price of £23 was still charged. Whilst I would revisit I don't know that I would do so as a group when other restaurants are more than happy to allow guests to pay individually,
