This place was great. Four of us went after work. Best Chinese I've had in a long while. Wish I'd found this place earlier. Be back again.

There are a very limited number of restaurants in Mount Isa - which means a very limited number of asian restaurants.

When dining in there was only one waitstaff - and she... More

I've been going to this place since I was a kid. I am now 41 and the food is still just as good. The place hasn't changed, still looks the same and still provides yummy chinese food with good service.

We were looking forward to a good Chinese meal after days in the outback eating mainly pub food. This didn't make the grade. My wife had wonton soup and the broth and ingredients were tasteless. My sweet and sour pork came out cold with chewy meat nuggets and minimal vegetables. The fried rice was also gluggy. The service was very... More

Enjoyed a great night out, food was delicious! I can highly recommend the marinated chicken with pepper sauce & was also very happy with sweet & sour pork, the batter was spot on, not thick or floury👍 t
