Food was great but surprisingly could not buy wine by the glass. You can only buy a whole bottle. Most staff could not speak English so it was difficult to communicate.
Very friendly staff though trying hard and always smiling. They have a range of Chinesse beer.

We were going to the cinema across the road from this restaurant (there seem to have been other Chinese Restaurants at this site previously) and wanted to have a quick dinner before. We were a bit pressed for time and at first a bit reluctant to enter the otherwise empty restaurant. But we did. The first impression was not good, there were used paper napkins lying on the floor around our table. No excuse really for that, no other guests there so there was plenty of opportunity to clean up.

Anyway we ordered just mains:
Chicken with cashew and plain rice and beef fried noodles. When ordering I asked whether our restricted time would be a problem and quoted them a time. The chicken arrived relatively fast and the beef took a bit longer in fact too long to meet the quoted deadline. Luckily I left some buffer. The portions were very big and tasted ok. A bit boring really. And the beef noodles the beef was just a bit of meat on the top, mostly it was a mountain of noodles with not much taste.

Wouldn't go there again.
