Absolutely Terrible
  1 / 10
This has to be one of the most overpriced, poor quality meals I have ever experience:

We ordered the set menu 'Nanking banquet' at £28 per head, which was on offer at 4 for 3. It should be renamed '***king banquet' because it was terrible; generally of small quantity, tasteless and poor quality ingredients.
The starter consisted of chicken and sweetcorn soup or hot and sour soup. The hot and sour soup tasted like the chef (assuming it was the chef and not the cleaner) had poured a tub of ground pepper into it making it completely unpalatable! This was eventually followed by an 'appetiser' which consisted of one piece each of 4 items; spare ribs, satay chicken, spring roll and a prawn thing!
After what seemed like ages the crispy duck arrived. Now I may have been spoiled in the past, but I'm used to this dish being prepared at the table, whereas this was presented looking like shredded corn beef and again very poor quality! And if there's 4 people, why would you serve 10 pancakes???
By this time I was very disappointed and after another long wait the main course finally arrived. Now this would have to be good to make up for what we had experienced so far and I wasn't disappointed or should that be I was disappointed: The main course consisted of (our choice of 4 dishes from the menu) sizzling beef in black bean source and had just 3 pieces of beef in it, lemon chicken; which looked like it was straight from the Aldi ready meal range (which was the best of the poor bunch), chicken and cashew nuts (or should that be cashew nuts with a bit of tasteless chicken) and sweet and sour chicken (average take away fare). We also had boiled rice which seemed to have been sat around for a while: dry and cold!
After we'd finished, which didn't take long as all the portions were small, we waited for one of the staff to acknowledge us so we could pay....nothing....I had to go looking for the waitress (I'll come back to her) to pay and offer my complaint as to the poor quality and service and this is where more fun was to be had.
The 'owner' came to speak to me and I expressed my disappointment and offered some constructive criticism in a very calm manner. After being told that she'd never had any complaints before (oh really?) and that they were busy (this was Monday evening and only 4 tables occupied!) she disappeared and I was then verbally attacked by this waitress! Now I would suggest that this girl doesn't feel that a restaurant is in the hospitality business but rather in the attitude business, as she started to generally 'have a go at me' for upsetting her 'mother'.
Anyway, I paid the £100+ bill and left. No apology, no offer of a reduction, nothing.
Would I return or recommend? No way!
