This is a very elegant looking place - Geelong's "Flower Drum". The food is also very good, especially the Peking Duck.

Still Geelong's best Chinese restaurant after a few decades. Haven't been back for a while, but was great to see the food was as good as ever. Love it!

The food was very good cannot fault it. The waiter we had was very professional. We went for a meal with no time frame in mind, but the food did come out in a timely manner. All up a great night with great food.

We had been before so expected a great night. I don't know what has happened but the service was the worst any of us have seen. No apologies were ever offered so this must now be standard. The food was good when it came, but...More
