    The resultant itself is spacious and quiet. Customer service wasn’t the best and they weren’t attentive. The table was sticky even though wipes are provided on the table we had to wipe down the table ourselves. It is very over priced for the value of food provided although I thought the food was ok. For £82 for 2 people it isn’t worth it.

    Really good food. A few things around the restaurant could be improved such as packs of wipes on the tables which made it feel a bit odd. But very good food and attentive service

    The food and service was great but was very expensive. If I had gone to an upmarket restaurant I would expect to pay more but this restaurant is not upmarket! It’s nice, but for those reasons I would not dine here again.

    Food was excellent, tasty & good value for money, if the restaurants decor was more modern it would be 5* all the way but 1970's plastic flowers not to my liking hence the 4* rating. For the food alone well worth a visit & I will visit again & recommend to others.

    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.
