A smart Cantonese restaurant with a modern bright décor, pillars, plants and murals. The owners have done well to create such an atmosphere, as the building used to be an army barracks.
An enormous menu, takes some time to digest, but all the sweet and sour standards are there plus scores of ways with noodles.
Starters, such as 'Spicy Minced King Prawns and Scallops Yuk Shung'; 'Crispy Aromatic Duck with Pancakes'; 'Crispy Fried Frogs Legs' and 'Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs' have all been enjoyed amongst the starters.
'Sizzling Venison with Ginger and Spring Onions'; 'Steamed Sea Bass in Black Bean Sauce'; 'Steamed Tripe with Ginger and Spring Onion' and 'Eel and Belly Pork Claypot' among the mains courses tried.
It's certainly popular - so seems to be enjoyed by all.
A sister restaurant 'Chung Ying' is in nearby Wrottesley Street (Tel: 0121-666 7051).
