This is a good take out restaurant for Chinese, but also adequate to eat in. The food is excellent. I always make it a point when I'm visiting Australia to visit this restaurant. It is a family managed restaurant.

Food from here is always top quality with genuine flavours. Love how everything tastes so fresh and is steaming hot coming out. Lots of variety, staff always very friendly and helpful.
