    The place was really nice and inviting but the food was very poor and tasteless really disappointing. My husbands food we should have sent back it was crispy beef the crumb on it wasn't even cooked looked awful we both said a total waste of money I would avoid.

    Nice venue has a classy up town club like feel to it , Not a typical pan Asian restaurant but the food we had we thoroughly enjoyed, so much so that the wife said we will return soon , bathrooms are on the first floor with extra seating , The owners obviously take pride in ownership a nice change for Northallerton .

    The place is very nicely decorated. The staff are friendly and helpful. Some of the dishes are overly sweet.

    nice menu, we had a sesame allergy so chose menu items that didn't contain or have the sesame symbol, unfortunately almost everything that needed fried had trace sesame due to the same oil used, watch this one. we were unaware .

    Great place. Lovely environment, attentive staff, great food and drinks. Was just a little loud but it was packed so that’s why. Will definitely be back.
