    Service was poor, we weren't allowed to sit upstairs or in a booth although these remained empty the whole time we were there. The forgot my seaweed and I had to ask twice then it was brought out cold. When I pointed that out it was whisked away with no apology or replacement. Waiter was not at all friendly and we had to wait a while to get a second drink. Having said that the food was very nice so would recommend for a takeaway. Larger parties seemed to be looked after better than us

    Decided to book a table here as I knew I'd be staying in Rutland for a few days. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the menu is really diverse, but what impressed me most was the value for money - I didn't feel out of pocket at all! This is definitely one of the better Chinese restaurants and they do a beautiful sweet and sour chicken.
