Back at my favourite Chinese restaurant, tonight I was treating my mum to dinner plus this was her first time here.

As always the staff, service was perfect and my mum really enjoyed it so much so she will be going back soon with my dad….and hopefully me.

I decided to shock everyone and have something different!! did I pick something different? or did I have my normal?

Read on to find out…..

The Food…

Main Course

Kung Po Chicken £12.50

Are you shocked? yes I did order something different….but how was it?

This was very tasty, the sauce added that extra mmmm and the chicken cooked perfectly.

Portion size as always here was very good! and something I would order again…but it still doesnt beat my normal order here.

I have walked past this place a few times and thought the food looked very nice, so today I took a visit.

On entering we were instantly greeted and asked if it was for take away or sit in, and then shown to a table.

The Food…

Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs £4.80

On arrival this looked very nice, I could see they cut up the ribs rather than bring then whole (maybe to speed up the cooking time).

These were very nice, and had a nice flavour.

If you do order these just be careful as there are bones, just because they are smaller pieces doesn’t mean they are boneless bits.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Hong Kong Style £6.50

This is one of my favourite dishes so I had to try it here and see how it was.

On arrival it looked nice, but this is where it stopped.

The sauce was very runny and had a slight vinegar taste to it, normally when its been like this its the cheaper way to make it so maybe thats whats happened tonight…or vinegar is used to thin down sauce to make it go further….

Overall

This place is a take away trying to be a sit in cafe/restaurant at the same time.

You order at the desk, get the cutlery yourself and all the food just comes at once even though its split in to starters and mains. Since it all came at once and I was at a table for two, the table was too busy and made it difficult to actually enjoy and eat.

By the time I finished my starter my Sweet and Sour chicken was a little cold, plus it wasn’t that good (i’ve had much better).

Personally I don’t know if I would go back, the starter was nice the main not so much….I will need to think on this one.

I had not been here for a while, and I promised Lychee I would go back so today I did.

This is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Glasgow, every time I visit the staff are always very pleasant and the food is always AMAZING (even if I mostly get the same dish every time)

For me this restaurant has a modern feel, and a very relaxing atmosphere.

The Food :

Chilli ‘n’ Salt Chicken Wings £4.70

IMG_7618.jpg

I am not someone that likes things too spicy so I was a little worried at how these would be.

These were perfect for me, there was a lot of flavour and just and no more hints of chilli so phew I was happy with my decision today.

Crispy Shredded Sweet ‘n’ Chilli Chicken £13.50 plus Rice £2.80

OK OK OK, yes I know I order this every time I go in, and I am sure Jimmy if your reading this your nodding your head and agreeing and laughing.

What can I say if you like this dish or sweet n sour chicken you will LOVE this. Its packed full of flavour, its presented nicely and its very very moreish.

I have been good recently when out as I have been eating out a lot, so no cakes etc so tonight I finished with a nice Cappuccino.

Overall :

I cant fault this restaurant in any way, I always look forward to going and leave very satisfied every time.
