This is the best Chinese food I have eaten in the UK. The food is authentic Chinese food and always very tasty, if you are very hungry or go as a group have the HotPot. The staff are always friendly and happy.

This restaurant is very spartan but serves authentic Chinese cuisine. Had various starters soup and main course's. The portions are quite large so bare that in mind when ordering. The only down side was the soups were quite watery and bland. Otherwise service was good...More
