A skilfully modernised menu, well thought out. This is more like a one-star Michelin restaurant which has not yet got its star. Service is good, and the dining rooms are rather splendid, too.

I visited the day before to check all set up. On the day we arrived on time. Table not ready. Substitute set up. Smaller than ideal table for 6. Clearly usually for 5 as throughout the meal we were served with 5 servings on the set dinner not 6. Caused delay and mounting irritation. They did not learn from experience and did not care. I did not pay the service charge. Very disappointing.

Had high expectations of this place given the good reviews but it fell short. Apart from the duck and pancakes, the other dishes we ordered were only so-so, and not very authentic tasting.

The decor is good and the staff are friendly and service very good and not intrusive. The food was fresh, tasty and nicely presented but main courses are quite pricey. However, the one MAJOR problem was that we were virtually sitting on the lap of the people next to us and could just about get through the gap between the tables to sit down, I wish now I had taken a photo !!!! I have never been so cramped in a restaurant and it really really spoils the dining experience. Am I the only one that has noticed this...... Would only go back if we could sit on one of the large tables opposite. Ridiculous and counter productive as spoils what is a very nice restaurant in every other way.

Having visited with my family several times it seems the standard of the food has dropped. My pancake was raw and afterwards I felt quite ill. The duck was pretty tasteless and the vegetable spring rolls tasted stale, too much pastry and not enough filling. The fillet steak clay pot (which we have had before) was just that - few strips steak stirred around in the pot, no vegetables so boring and again, tasteless.

We asked to be moved as the table next to us was pretty rowdy - not the restaurant's fault - and they moved us quickly as despite being Chinese New Year it wasn't busy. As it was my daughter's birthday (which was why I asked to be moved to a quieter table) they brought banana toffee/ice cream at the end of the meal but to be honest we were over it by then.
