Yet another Chinatown restaurant? I think not! Terrible wine list; But the food is great! Service is efficient & nice. If you can get a front window seat, its unreal to watch the bussling Chinatown crowd. I recommend the dinner for two if your both wanting different things and its a cheap feed.

Whilst wait staff were friendly and pleasant, one of them was somewhat reluctant to follow up on a query we had with the drinks/bar. We attended on a busy Friday evening. Looks like I got the last of the wine bottle (my glass had a 'taste' amount. A mosquito landed in hubby's glass, and when we asked that the glass... More

The food quality in this place is TERRIBLE. The food is not at all fresh & quite tasteless. Some of the worst Chinese food I've ever had. The san chou bay was especially bad & there was nothing that impressed. There are so many other places to choose from around the area, I'll definitely be walking past this one in... More

This is more of a comical review if anything, we called in here after a recent concert on a Tuesday night, only because it was one of the very few places that was actually open, apparently most dinning options in Melbourne close at about 10pm early in the week. We ordered a banquet and the service was so fast that... More

Those who have written reviews of more than two "stars", or was paid to do so or has serious problems with food quality. In Italy, a restaurant like this would be an attack on public health, it would fail after only a week.

This restaurant has incredible food! The restaurant is probably due for a renovation and replacement of table clothes and decorations, as they are very old, but the food is exceptional. They accidentally got a dish on our order wrong, however left us with the incorrect dish (at no charge) and also promptly got us the dish we had originally ordered.

After going to the Dream Time football game at the MCG we were looking for somewhere for a late quick meal. Wandered down through China Town and came across this restaurant. Very welcoming, quick service and yummy food. We shared the szechuan beef and special fried rice and thoroughly enjoyed the dishes.

Three of us were looking for somewhere to eat before going to 'Grease'. When asked, the staff said that would be possible and, once ordered, our meals did arrive quickly. We didn't order any entrees - just 3 main meals and they were very nice. We tried Honey Chicken, Spicy Lamb Stirfry with ginger & Peking Duck pancakes - all... More

Did this restaurant change ownership? We went to this place in January before the theatre, we had been here before and our experience was fantastic but this time it was awful! The customer service was the most appalling I've ever had, we ordered main and entree, first of all they forgot one of the entrees and brought one main dish... More

Had the $20 per person banquet for a family of 5 and could not finish it. Lots of food and although the service was not flash it was not rude. Good option for a cheapish and quick dinner.
