We had a table of 3 and didn't have a reservation and it was very busy as it was Valentine's Day.We had to wait much longer than usual but our food was worth waiting for. We ate a delicious honey prawns dish... More

As a senior with dickie knees I found the stairs with very low hand rails difficult to manage. Decor was lovely and the food very tasty. Service was prompt. We were not asked if we wanted chopsticks. Was disappointing to have our plates cleared as each finished eating, rather than waiting till we had all finished. It is inappropriate and... More

I love this place. It reminds me of the Chinese restaurants from the 70s. Top dish is the beef in plum sauce crispy noodle nest. It is a bit sweet so you should order something a bit salty to off set it, but man it's good! I love this place as it's a bit daggy, but the staff are nice... More

Our family was so impressed with lovely staffs. However, the meals were so small portion, pricey & sugary. We ordered steamed fish with Ginger & Shallot and the fish smells off.

This is our number ONE choice of Chinese in Burnie by a long shot. Prices and menu selection are value plus, staff efficient, service fast...we use the take out by phone order and keep going back for consistent quality. Highly recommended.

A friendly waiter, classic Chinese decor and beautiful food sum up our dining experience. I was craving healthy cuisine and was not disappointed with the squid with fresh vegetables. Mr TG ordered salt and pepper squid and remarked, "They don't call it salt and pepper for nothing!" I'm most looking forward to returning in the near future
