I am only giving this place one star for one reason. The staff have been very rude to me on several occasions. They talk loudly to each other while they are serving you. No smiles, no goodbye or thankyou (even when you say it to them) I went in oneday on my own, the place was empty, and in almost a hostile manner a waitress directed me to a single table right up the front where the two women were gossiping in a shouty way at each other inches away from my table. My table was tiny and I could have sat anywhere but was made to feel uncomfortable for being alone. This place has great food at a cheap price, so I kept going back but now I think I am just so fed up with the rudeness that I’ll have to find another local. I used to think my tip was considered poor, so I increased it and they were still rude. I’ve seen them be polite to older men, for some reason never to me.
I’m giving 5 stars here coz’ this place remind me of my first year in London. It’s been a while since my last visit to this place. If i have a chance to go around waterloo im definitely give this place a visit for sure. must try restaurant…
Small Chinese place with an extremely affordable menu. The food tastes good too. The atmosphere is informal, with no more than a dozen tables. You get an occasional take away visitor. They serve traditional Chinese starters, Peking duck etc. As for the mains, you can get a huge serving of noodles for £6-£7, or similarly priced rice combo. Choose you noodle type, sauce, whether you want a soup or a stir-fry, and the meat or vegetables to go on top. With the rice dishes, you get a plate with the choice of topping (lemon chicken, beef in black bean sauce etc.). Really good value for money, as usually you need to order your main and your rice separately. The first cup of green tea is free, and about £1.50 for top-ups. They’ve got some quirky deserts (fried ice cream?) and freshly squeezed juices too.
Great if you are on a budget, in a hurry, or just after a hearty bowl of noodles.
