In a nutshell we selected a take away on the night. The experience was pleasant due the cordial and welcoming greeting. The service was prompt and the meal was tasty and delicious. The food ingredients combination made for an enjoyable meal . We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to diners who are staying in the area of Walkerville.... More

We went twice during our November trip to Adelaide. We loved the interchange with the owner, Wendy, and learning about her escape from Vietnam by boat and her building of the resaurant business. Just as importantly, we loved the cooking and the willingness to add extra ingredients according to our tastes. The wine list was good and reasonably priced. The... More

When we are in Adelaide for the footy or cricket, this is our preferred eating spot. Wendy really cares that you enjoy your experience & tailors the food to your liking. The prices are reasonable, the wine list is good & not expensive & the waiting staff are smiling & helpful. We'll be back.

A group of us came on 19th November to have a birthday dinner. We chose banquet as it is good to share different foods. The food was good as usual. Wendy, the owner is very friendly and aims to please. You can get takeaway here too.

The mixed entree was served with separate sauces for each item, the first time I've encountered this at a Chinese take-away. The labelling of each container is very thoughtful, again, it is the...

I finally got around to trying the take away at this long established restaurant on Melbourne St, recently & was blown away by the speedy service. I barley had a chance to sit down when the owner produced my bag. I ordered the Sweet & Sour pork, which I found tasty & good value compared to some other places around... More
