I was quite disappointed when I came here with my work. Everyone at work was saying how nice it was and that they went there a lot so I was really looking forward to it because I love Chinese food. The staff were very nice and attentive and had put a few tables together for us. The wine list was huge which is nice. I ordered chilli honey spare ribs which were lovely. A bit filling for a starter but they were really nice, then for my main I ordered Kung Po chicken which I have had a few times in other Chinese restaurants. It was horrible, the sauce seemed very oily and the chicken didn't have a very good texture. It totally put me off going back.

I have to disagree with the previous reviewer and say that i think the food gorgeous. Everything i have tried has been very nice. I have eaten in and had food delivered from the ping on. My dining in experience was very pleasant, although there are 2 parts to the restaurant, we were seated at the top part which i found to be a little small, we were a bit too close to other customers, it seemed like they were trying to fit as many in as they could. Thats aside it had a nice atmosphere and the staff were polite and friendly. The menu had a good selection to choose from. We had vegetable spring rolls to start which were lovely and crisp with a generous amount of filling. I had Chicken curry, which i really enjoyed although my one complaint would be that the curry sauce was a little runny. Now on to the delivery service, the food was good as always the prices i thought a little expensive compared to other chinese takeaways but worth paying because of the quality, and it always arrives hot and fairly quickly. Great little chinese restaurant.
