We have been going to Jasmine for years and have never been disappointed! The family who run it are lovely and the food is amazing. It’s hidden above the James Cook arcade and totally worth searching for. Best dumplings ever!!!!

This was the chosen venue for a farewell dinner. The staff were very accommodating to our constant changes. We had a lovely banquet meal. Our large group of 23 diners left very happy.

You can park at the James Cook hotel car park....but it is expensive. You are probably better off looking for street parking nearby.
