Great variety on the menu and the food is good and definitely great value too. The decor is a bit ordinary but its not really a fine dining joint so can't complain. The service however can be a bit patchy sometimes. We are not cantonese or mandarin speaking people so if the staff member attending to you doesn't speak good... More

I couldn't wait to write this review, such was our experience. I've been a few times previously, but tonight was a real standout. The food has always been consistently delicious, but tonight we were served by the restaurant owner (Liam?) and it really made our night. I travel almost weekly for work, and I don't recall the last time I... More

I visit the Sunnybank Oriental regularly as much twice a week! I have been going there for the last 5 years and was first introduced to the Breakfast menu. I usually pick "G" which is the Congee with Beef Brisket + Rice rolls + hot beverage....it is mouth watering, flavoursome and only $8.90! Great value for money and only a... More

I frequently dine here & out of all the places around Sunnybank I've been to this has to be my favourite, the Combination Fried Noodle (#61 on the menu) is always outstanding (I order without the fish cake as the flavour is too strong for me but I'm sure there's plenty who love it). Both the Chicken & the Pork... More

This place is good value for what it is: a local eatery. A good place for take out or a quick meal with authentic dishes, along with the Aussiefied favorites, and lots of Chinese clientele. Disabled access is ok. Parking is available, but you'll have to fight your way through a lot of traffic. It's located in a small, but... More

I used to really like the breakfast here. Last 3 experiences here were not great and I didn't finish the meals. - First time I had congee and it tasted burnt. - Second time I had congee again (to give it another chance) and BBQ pork wrapped in rice flour (cheong fun). Once again the congee was a disappointment and... More

Frequent this 'cafe type' eatery quite regularly. Family favourites are Seafood chow mien and pork clay pot - Yum. Did have one terrible clay pot though, where I think they tipped in a packet of 5 spice. However generally good. Can order variety of drinks or free self serve tea. The free tea is much better now it is not... More

Their lunch menus are value for money and the staff are friendly and prompt! Would recommend everyone who has a palate for Authentic Asian Cuisine to try. ...No Western... More

Use to be a good place for a cheap eat hunter. However, the food is a little up and down lately, and the staffs are getting not friendly at all. I was ask for a little plate or bowl to share, one of the staff without saying a word just pointing at the pile of bowl were. All the bowl... More
