Cannot recommend enough! We travelled 30 mins just to come here! The staff are so knowledgeable, the food is so fresh and delicious! Possibly the best Chinese I have had, my entire family agreed! Crispy chilli beef that was actually chilli and beef to note! I have missed Chinese food so very much! And this was such a joy! All reasonably priced too, wine as well! The main menu does not have GF listed but as the other reviews say the staff are super knowledgable and there are really only 3-5items we cannot have. The dessert menu does have gf marked on and lots of choice! We will definitely be back. I would also recommend booking, especially in school holidays, we are here in March and it was still pretty busy.

This place is absolutely amazing. I have missed Chinese so much. Only three items on the menu that I could not eat the rest of the menu was adaptable for me. I could not decide so went for 2 mains instead. I will be coming back for more before I go home

I’m Celiac- This place was amazing. 90% of the menu could be ordered Gluten Free!! They had a great understanding of my needs - they will point out the few items that aren’t safe, which were mainly the spring rolls, wontons and deep fried items. But that still left probably 30 items that they made gluten free with gluten-free soy sauce and gluten free flour for a few items, as well as dedicated woks. We ate here 3 nights in a row because I hadn’t had Chinese food since diagnosis. My husband, who can eat gluten, ordered all gluten-free for himself as well so we could share everything and said it was the best, freshest Chinese food he’s ever had!

Fabulous gluten free meals on holiday here. Not had a Chinese meal since diagnosis in 2007. Lovely food and our waitress Margarita was very helpful with the menu and a had a great understanding of coeliac disease and cross contamination. Near enough the whole menu is coeliac friendly.

Great food and service and lovely to see so many returning customers getting a warm welcome as they arrived. I think they should promote their knowledge and wide range of gluten free options more.

Eat here, it's fantastic. We ate here the two final nights of our stay. We would have eaten here more if we had found it earlier. It's open 6pm to midnight.

The two people I spoke to had very good English and were very knowledgeable about gluten-free food and preparation.

Many menu items can be adapted for gluten-free. They have a separate gluten-free fryer. They make batter from gluten-free potato starch. They are careful to prevent cross-contamination. Just ask if the main menu item can be adapted for gluten-free.

Two of us are coeliac, and two 'normal'. We all enjoyed the meals.

We ate the following GF adapted items:

Pan Fried Chicken with sweet and sour sauce, Hong Kong Style (meaning the chicken is deep fried first in a GF batter made from potato starch), item 40 on the menu. Chicken a little hard (maybe overcooked) but still the best I have had in five years since going GF.

Egg fried rice.

Chicken fried noodles, and King Prawn fried noodles - adapted using rice-noodles. Item 128 and 127.

Pan Fried Chicken with Pineapple. Absolutely fantastic. So tasty and tender. Item 42.

Only one item we asked for could not be adapted to gluten-free due to the type of pot it is made in, being item 39 Deep fried chicken with almonds in a lemon or orange sauce.

Service was excellent.
