Tired of cooking.

The handy eat out place to be. Excellent food and value for money. I sometimes ordered meal if I tired of cooking or a ready ordered meal for unexpected friends of guests arrival or a catering venue.

Been here several times, dishes generous and flavoursome, nice family place but the last visit left me and my friend with strong MSG reactions overnight. I won't be returning until they leave off the chemicals.

The food is not very nice, and there is not enough meat in the dishes. And the batter on the prawns is disgusting.

Darwin has a reputation of bad food. We tried a few Thais in Cullen Bay and City, Chinese at parap, they are horrible. Although abit away from the CBD, this one is the best Chinese in town from the tripadviser and word of mouth. So we went here to try and definitely recommend the chicken satay. Would definitely be back... More

Hands down,the best Chinese food in Darwin! Friendly, happy, busy and authentic. Good luck booking a table but when you finally secure one, make the most of it. These rare moments of joy only happen so often. The takeaway is just as amazing and you won't be disappointed. Prepare to be spoilt.

Even though the interior is terrible, the food is ok and worth a try for a cheap chinese meal. Have only been here once, but colleagues eat here often and never speak a bad word!

Just get to this restaurant if you enjoy Chinese food. It is the best this side of Chinatown in Sydney. Quality of food is just awesome. Shame you are not in Brisbane .
