The only reason I didn't walk out was I had already paid & there were quite a few locals coming in at the same time as me. The assistant was aussie & not professional. I would like to... More

One of the best Chinese restaurants in town, although personally I prefer Ying's across the road over this one. Lovely Chinese food, friendly staff, has everything a Chinese restaurant should and I love how they are open in the daytime for lunch during the week which is fantastic. Will keep coming here regularly.
