It looks small and quaint from the outside but the food is good quality with a nice mix of meat and vegetables, and the friendliness and warmth of the staff is exceptional. It reminded me of Chinese restaurants that I enjoy going to in my...More

Decor is dated and 1970s-ish, just the way I like it, with carpet on floor!! The food is always great! Cent believe this place has been here next to me for so long and I've only just discovered it! NEVER disappoints!

Have been here twice now. Basic decor but unbelievable service and food. Do yourself a favour and order the prawn toast. The lady that works there is very friendly and we have not had a bad dish yet. Plus it's BYO. Winning.

Sticky tables are not a good sign. Salt and pepper squid was 70% deep fried batter and it was down hill from there. The trip to the loo just about required a GP consult the flowing day. Hey, you get what you pay for.

The service from this tiny restaurant is wonderful, as is the food. We have been here every time we have visited Melbourne, and it never ceases to amaze me how hard the owner works to make you happy. It's a BYO too.
