The food here is delicious. Great variety and all freshly made. The host and wife are very friendly and helpful to make the occasion enjoyable. Best Chinese food we have 3 ever eaten.

Good, tasty Chinese food. Its hole-in-the-wall looks are deceptive! Takeaway service was prompt. Well recommended.

You cannot fault this restaurant for good old fashioned Australian Chinese food, took me back to my childhood. All the favourites, sweet and sour pork, beef and black bean, honey prawns, lemon chicken.....served with love and character in a typical basic bright light Chinese restaurant.

Ordered chicken satay and what came was pre prepared chicken bits with beef gravy with curry powder in it. !!!!!!! At least that's as close as we could get to describing what we tasted. Very shopfront with no atmosphere
