This has become our staple go to in Essendon. Its a mix of different Asian styles and we haven't tried anything we didn't like yet. The food is always fresh, and the staff friendly! Don't let its train station location deter you - this is a real hidden gem!

Used to be excellent until new management took over. Poorly prepared meals and soggy stale prawn chips.

The menu is extensive, but absolutely everything so far has been super tasty and it is only getting better as we explore further. It is not cheap, but well worth the extra coin. Delivery is quick and extremely friendly. I love my Chinese and Cherry Blossom hits all the marks.

The food is so cheap and big portion. I came here with my friends, we are so full. If you haven't visit, must come and try. The hospitality is so good and clean.

I have eaten at Cherry Blossom in the past. Recently, however, I have tried to call them to place a takeaway order, and the call has rung out. This is not a good look for a restaurant that also does takeaway.

New owners and cooks are now at Cherry Blossom. As mentioned in my review in Sept 2012, we have been regulars here now for the last 6 years. Thank you to the previous owners for their hospitality, and we wish them a wonderful "retirement". To the new owners, we wish you all the very best at Cherry Blossom.

Went to this reasurant and the food was ok but not stunning. It is a small unimpressive restaurant that looks like it would not have dear prices. It is a bit misleading in this way. I thought they had slight delusions of grandure shown only by their prices. A simple lamb dish my husband had was $20.50. It was the... More

FYI- The photo that looks like the inside of an office building is definitely NOT the Cherry Blossom restaurant in Essendon. Someone's made a a mistake.

Food here is always consistent and the service is friendly and helpful. They're happy to change a dish to your requirements if needed. Lovely people make this restaurant.
