Great food at a good price, I enjoyed vegetables in garlic sauce and my husband raved about the roast duck in hot special sauce.

Extremely friendly, fascinating 4 generations of history on the walls (you are welcome to walk round and look, including gifts to current owner from her grandma, and grandpa with Aborigine mate who helped him build it). Food ok given lack of key ingredients (?) and very Cantonese, but outstanding range of teas. Authentic Broome Chinese connection experience. 3 doors up... More

Loved the Taiwanese Staff. They were very helpful and I just love Thai food. Good location. Tom Yum was fantastic but I could taste the difference depending on the chef. enjoyed most dishes there were some I did not but that's life you have to try. The Green curry dish was superb was well attended each night.

Food was great. We had prawns with garlic and shallots and Mongolian lamb. Which cost over $50. We thought $8 for a small tub of steamed rice to take away was excessive.

Three of us went here for dinner expecting good things as it in the heart of Broome's Chinatown. Things were so bad it was funny. Firstly, on the menu were prawn crackers for $5. It's the first time I've ever seen them for anything other than free. I got some with my spring rolls and they were burnt. That takes... More
