    Doesn't really live up to the pictures. Food was grand. The beef would leave you with a chiseled jawline. Rice was dry and clumped. Good portion sizes though. Bit bright and constant draught near the door. Staff were lovely. Happy enough but wouldn't be racing back.

    The restaurant was absolutely freezing ! The main door doesn’t shut properly and two doors create a draft right thru the restaurant. We were in the table just inside the door and it ruined our night. We complained to a member of staff as no manager was present and they said ‘oh yeah we know that it freezes the whole place’. Just recovering from a flu and with a joint birthday celebration this was the last thing we needed. The door was in use continuously as it’s also a take away so lots of delivery drivers passing through; they should really use another entrance. Such a pity as the food was great, even if not authentic Chinese. Get a takeaway is my suggestion as this isn’t a comfortable place to eat.

    Very bad service, all food and drink came at the same and drinks took 40mins to show up, they put a waiter on his first day on our table without any training, obviously not his fault but the fault of his management which were know where to be found when asked for

    Portions for main course and sides are massive. Had the panseared dumplings as a starter which was probably just right size for a starter. The amount of pork belly in the main was really generous and the spicy chips were a large portion. cocktails are nice too

    For a starter my husband had the fried dumplings with chicken and they were tasty, but nothing exceptional. I had the bao bun with the pork belly. It was really tasty. But, I think, part of the fun of eating a bao bun is that it is finger food. This one was much too large to eat with my hands. I would have preferred 2 smaller buns rather than 1 such large one--also easier for sharing that way. For mains we both had the wide homemade noodles dry with duck. Both of our sauces were very flavorful and the duck serving was crispy and generous. The service was fine. No delays or confusion as others have posted. Our only real complaint is that the restaurant has a simple, minimalist decor, but is way too bright. It would have a much more elegant high-end vibe if they would just tone down the lighting.

    All the bad reviews I saw almost put me off, but now having dined here yesterday evening with my partner for our anniversary I don’t understand what these people leaving bad reviews are on about and I’m questioning wether they are actually genuine or not since they all seem to be very similar. Extremely flavorful and delicious food, like seriously outstanding, tonnes of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, great portion sizes and served almost immediately after we ordered. Delicious and beautiful looking cocktails and lovely staff. We did have to wait a good while for our last two cocktails but that was later on when they were quite busy and seemed to be taking quite a few drink orders and our waiter apologized for the delay. Overall fantastic restaurant, would absolutely recommend❤️
