ordered a takeaway on Sunday night. food was good and tasty but portion size was tiny for LARGE containers i thought. also we ordered chicken with black bean sauce which literally had 6 - 8 thin slices of chicken and 1/2 kg capsicum and onion. but on the other side chicken friend rice was really tasty.

Took some friends to this place last night as they wanted a Chinese meal - what a mistake ! They took the order quick enough and we selected 4 dishes so we could have a share of each however each dish came separately with a wait time of several minutes between each dish. This perhaps wouldn't have been so bad... More

Waitress was horrible, piercings everywhere, bad manners, and just looked like she just was there for the money. Dim Sims are a must try, but recommend not dinning in and get the take away.

Over priced sludge with no care and attn to detail. The dinner cost 50 dollars for one person and I still left hungry. I would not recommend this eatery to anyone. I should have known going on the outdated decors and lack of atmosphere. The waitress with her piercings was probably more suited in a brothel. A very dingy place... More

We went to this restaurant twice - a second time because we thought the first time was so good. It wasn't quite so good the 2nd time and neither of the waitresses seemed to know much about the menus they gave us.

We didn't expect to have a Chinese meal during our visit, we usually stick to local produce. We were surprised and delight by the menu.

Just been out to dinner with my husband here. The waitress was very attentive and polite, the meals came quickly and we were very happy with them. A lemon chicken and beef with cashews and season veges. The best Chinese meal I have had in some time. I would recommend this place if you want a good Chinese meal.
