When some friends suggested they take me to a restaurant where the chef has been awarded an International medal for cuisine it was a no brainer and a smart decision to take up their offer. The menu is extensive and every dish was excellent, even better its BYO so we took some superb whiskers to sample as well. I'm not going to write pages as the pictures speak for themselves. I suggest you book and eat ASAP. Great place for a group of friends. I could only load half the dishes we ordered

We found a maggot in the wonton soup, my daughter showed me and I didn't believe it they have an A grade food rating, I guess we all make mistakes but I wont be going back, ever.

We went for lunch on Christmas day and were the only ones there. The lady was very nice and we enjoyed chatting with her. The food was good, and we enjoyed fried noodles, a rice dish and a beef dish. and some tea. That was $92. Very pricey, especially compared to similar chinese food prices in the US

I had a lovely lemon chicken and rice with spring rolls. There was quite a wait for my takeaway and was disappointed to see at least 20 other dishes go past me to other diners.
