I'm Chinese from Malaysia. And I can say, this is superb!!
First of all, they have two different set of menu, if you are Asian or if you are adventurous, ask for original Asian (Chinese) menu.
If you aren't adventurous enough, go for English menu which offers Chinese food that try to tailor to local's preferences (whichi find not attractive at all).

The shop and the toilet was very clean. (we checked the toilet as some one said it has probleml.

The food. My mouth start drooling whenever I recalled the 水煮魚 (cook whole fish, immersed in special Szechuan chili soup which is covered with very thick layer of oil) and 燒魚 (grilled whole fish).
The fish was so fresh and tasty!! Even the fish is immersed in oil, but it doesn't feel oily at all (magic??).. This is the famous must-try dish in Szechuan!!

Singapore fried vermicili not so good.
The pork cutlet was so tender (but with strong pork smell). It was nice for first few bite. But i can't take much.

We have visited for two consecutive days during the very short stay in Belfast. Because the fish is so irresistible!! (but not spicy, maybe the chef forgotten we are Asian).

Strongly recommended!

Thank TJoo

If you are a good fun of spicy food, definitely recommend you here. Nice service as well. Went there with friends several times and they love it.

NO ALCOHOL. they do not serve alcohol (beer, wines...). We asked if we could just go to the shop next door and buy some. Yes you can, but even though you bought the alcohol, they will charge you an extra £2 per head for bringing your own drinks.
The service wasn't great, a few times the waiter came to clear dishes while people were will eating from them.
The place is really not vegetarian friendly (there are some great Chinese restaurants in Belfast that are), unless you are ok with a plate of sliced cucumbers and carrots. A few friends gagged when they tried the fish.

We had a visitor from China and wanted to take her to an authentic Chinese restaurant. We were a group of 8 and let her order for us from the Chinese menu. We added a few western style Chinese dishes. The food was superb. Don't let the decor put you off. It is very simple but great value. Also it isn't licensed so bring your own wine and beer. We have eaten in many Chinese restaurants , in China and the UK, and the food here is delicious.
We are already planning our next visit.
