We eat here fairly frequently, the food is fairly standard chinese food. The duck was a bit disappointing this time. The two chicken mains were nice enough. Last saturday the service was slow and it wasn't full.

Decided to go here with 2 of my friends. On entry the restaurant looks very unassuming and as it's a basement location would not be suitable for wheelchair users ( it does state this on its website). Although it was 7pm on a Thursday it...More

This is by far the best Chinese restaurant I've ever visited. I've had about five visits and I've never been disappointed. The service is great, efficient, friendly and the menu is varied and food piping hot.

We like this restaurant. We had the chicken with lemongrass which was delicious. The noodles and egg fried rice were also very good. We weren't as impressed with the beef and black bean but overall we still really enjoyed the meal.

A real find. Friendly service. Chinese food to rival Aussie Chinese food which in my opinion is one of the best 'not in China' culinary experiences. Highly recommended. Often it's quite quiet so please help them to create a bit more atmosphere by heading there...More
