This restaurant used to be good, but it has gone down hill these past few months. The only chinese restaurant in the world that cannot cook fried rice. Rice is usually stale and tasteless. Food is not nicely seasoned. Bad and bland! Don't waste your money.

This is a neat little chinese restaurant with reasonable food at reasonable prices. It is good for takeaway but if eating in the place has a cold feeling and no atmosphere

Well we keep on going back........love the flavours the Chef puts into his dishes. The Satay steak and BBQ Pork ribs are yummy. Soup is great. You just have to know what to order. Drink prices sensible and full marks to the bright and bubbly waitress who is the best asset any restaurant could have. She deserves the employee of... More

We used to visit this restaurant regularly a few years back. The prices have stayed the same which is a bonus but sadly, the quality of the food has suffered. The honey chicken sauce was very oily with a tiny taste of something that slightly tasted of honey. The fried rice was plain and flavourless and the rest of the... More

We always love coming to this old Chinese Restaurant with great service from a wonderful waitress who is so bright and bubbly. We love the satay steak (so tender and yummy) and the pork spare ribs... and thank goodness they don't do the Aussie thing and put peas in the fried rice. A little authenticity that's appreciated. Great prices and... More

We usually get takeaway and the food is delicious. Don't generally have to wait too long for your order and you get a generous amount food in the pack.

Food was excellent! Will definatly be back for more. Serving sizes excellent, flavours great. Value for money, top notch. Service good. Would make a few suggestions though, some background music would be nice, it kinda feels like sitting in a government waiting room. - or even a tv going or something. It Has decor of a country town hall, but... More

We ordered take away on the phone on a Sunday night & asked for a noodle dish as well as 2 other dishes. After arriving after the said waiting time of 35 minutes, the food was not ready & we were told they had run out of noodles. After being forced to change our order & waiting another 30 minutes...
