We were visiting from Brisbane to see family for Xmas and found ourselves stopping here on a Saturday afternoon during the Parap markets - we were lucky enough to get a prime park as we especially wanted to visit Happy Garden. Not much ready in the bain maries to choose from, perhaps understandable, given that there were market food stalls... More

Call in and bought takeaway- food ready in Bai Marie's- good selection but you can still order from the menu. Reasonably priced and friendly service. No matter how busy the shop gets they are fast and efficient. Great Chinese 👍

Lovely food from the take away. Choice of food from the bain or have it prepared fresh out the back. Not too long a wait (3 dishes and a fried rice took around 15 minutes). Prawn crackers fresh and crunchy. Service with a smile.

Got honey chicken and rice with wontons it was delicious. I thought it was a bit pricey for a takeaway but it was very tasty! Would eat here again.
