Named Hong fa's Palace (Asian Cuisine) now, The new owner kept the settings of the restaurant simple, pleasant and clean (not sure whether its from the previous restaurant owners). There are a wide range of dishes to choose from. We tried the Mongolian combination and the Squid, chicken and tofu stir fry and they were delicious! Their portions were reasonable... More

Worst restaurant in Canberra. Dry and reconstituted food and awful service. They gave us the wrong food and refused to do anything about it. Instead they were rude and patronising about our ethnicity and intelligence. Ruined our evening.

This is our local cheap and cheerful and is always reliable. It is not fine dining but the food is always excellent with very fresh vegetables and sauces. The Peking duck pancakes are excellent value.

We found this restaurant through the Privileges Card scheme and have since been back several times. Service is fast and friendly and they are very good with kids; providing decent, clean high chairs and special kids bowls and cutlery. The menu offers a good variety of food and there is also a blackboard offering seasonal specials. There is nothing overly... More
