My family ate in this restaurant when we first arrived as migrants in Australia. We celebrated my dad's first pay check. That was the first and the last (1989). This time around I brought my own family. Surely by now everything would have changed. The room was clean and comfortable. There were mirrors on the wall that made the room... More

The honey chicken here is amazing. At first I did not expect much on entering the restaurant but when I sat down, the merry go land began. It was amazing! The food! The service! I was so happy. The rice is also good. The portion size was also good. What more could you expect? Really. Food = Excellent. Service =... More

Been here twice since it re-opened/was taken over. Once take away and once dine in. Bluntly it is BAD VALUE FOR MONEY. The average price of $19 per main meal is overpriced for a restaurant decked out in paper tablecloths and plastic plants serving average FOOD COURT QUALITY food . When they bought out chicken and cashew nuts instead of... More

The Harbour Inn Chinese Restaurant located at Pier Street, Altona is in my personal opinion by far the best Chinese Restaurant around, so much so that this is decidedly the only Restaurant from which I have purchased Chinese Food since as far back as the mid 1990's. [Service:] Home Delivery is available for a small surcharge & it never ceases... More
