Amazingly quick, fresh delicious food, professional friendly service. Such a pleasant experience. It was not the first time and definitely won't be the last time!

The biggest attraction of this restaurant is the beautiful location. Sitting overlooking the river is a great way to spend the evening. I had the combo entre (spring roll, 2 types of dim sim and a prawn cutlet), along with garlic prawns. The food was fine but nothing special. The staff were friendly and attentive. There was nothing about the... More

A very nice spot on the banks of the river. The food was very tasty. Staff couldn't be nicer. Friendly and quick service. Good price too. I would recommend it.

One of my favourite restaurants in Rockhampton. Great food and love sitting outside over the Fitzroy River.

I love Hot n sour soup and these guys do it well along with their other mixed Asian menu. Great atmosphere and views of the Fitzroy river, perhaps the best in town. The service is super friendly. I will keep coming back here for sure

Rockhampton as a city has issues when seeking quality restaurant/food at a reasonable to good price. While I have not visited The number one restaurant ranked by Trip Adviser, I have sampled many other restaurants in Rockhampton and would not return to those restaurants either by myself or take people as my guests to those restaurants. On the recommendation of... More

I went here on Wednesday night with work colleagues, there were 10 of us in total in the group and we did not make a prior reservation. However this was not a problem as the staff quickly arranged tables to accommodate us all. The building and furnishings may have been little drab but this was quickly forgotten due to the... More

Taking note of the very positive review by 'TherockSaid' of 06 August, my friend and I went along for dinner on 04 September – a Wednesday night. The reaservation we made the day before wasn't really neccesary, but ..... it always helps. From outside and upon entering, we were taken aback a little by the rather dowdy and drab appearance...

This place is looking somewhat tired of late but it has two very strong points ; The first being the nice loaction overlooking the river and with time to come will be the major eating area of Rockhampton. The second and most important is the cuisine ...it has the standard pro western dishes but really has some authentic food. Nothing... More

Was put onto this great little cafe by a friend. We had a yummy lunch while enjoying the river views. The wonton soup was a standout. Would come back.
