Worst Chinese food I have ever had. Sweet & Sour pork was bland, Chicken Chow Mein was tastless, Almond Chicken was over deep fried & tough, the deep fried Prawns were ok. Will never go back!

Food is decent at reasonable prices. Staff are very friendly and the restaurant is clean. (We checked the VIHA Food Facility & Inspection website,) We have had the buffet and takeout with no complaints. It won't be the best meal you have ever had but...More
