My parents enjoyed a lovely birthday meal and they were really happy with the decor the service and the food.
They had a lovely time and it was great to be out in Manchester and enjoying a meal out on a Saturday night once again.
They will be back soon.

Being charitable, they had only just reopened about a week ago but they still seemed completely unprepared. However, although we had booked, they kept taking in walk-ins and takeaways but without having enough of either serving staff or chefs to be able to service everyone. We didn't get our drinks or food for over an hour and then dishes were being brought out one by one and only after we had to keep asking the staff for them.
The food itself was of a level of an average suburban Chinese takeaway, not what it should be for a Princess Street, Chinatown, Manchester-level restaurant.
