The friend I was visiting lives near this restaurant and insisted we go there for the fantastically old-fashioned decor. Gotta say, it was like stepping into a Chinese restaurant back with my family when I was a kid and it was terribly exciting. I really liked it. They gave us a seat next to the fish tank (the fish were... More

A great place where for $10.00 you get a good feed of australiana chinese food, dont pretend I am an expert on chinese cuisine but what you get here tastes great, comes quickly and is an amazing portion size. A group of us regularly go on a Saturday lunchtime after a morning of chores and domestic duites. So good to... More

Have been going here for 30 years and the food has been of the same quality from day dot. Exterior probably hasn't changed in that time.... But don't let that stop you. Fantastic food never let's me down. thanks swan lake.

Maybe we went on a bad night, but average food average service, no intention of running back. We have a closer chinese which we enjoy.

As many have been previously mentioned the facade and interior need a little sprucing but don't judge a book by it's cover. A few months ago a colleague and I took a chance one lunch time and ventured in. Let's just say we have been back every week since. They have a weekly lunch special menu (nothing over $10.50) and...

Despite an unprepossessing exterior, Swan Lake makes great food at a great price. Staff are friendly and service is quick.

Nowhere can match the Chinese Restaurant in Credenhill, Hereford, even Royalty have frequented it!! But, here we are in Churchlands, Perth, at the place called Swan Lake. The chef's name is Jack, just ask for him and he will give you the most delightful and personal experience, from the starters to the mains, and then when you think its all... More

Tried their Sang Choy Bow and Sambal Prawns - worth a try. Unfortunately the street presentation is unwelcoming and the entrance is quite run down and in need of a lift however the food and service were good - large serves so don't order too much.

This restaurant does not look good from the outside. However, if you can bring yourself to venture in, the food is really quite lovely. The restaurant itself is in a state of total disrepair to include water dripping from the ceiling like a tap for the last few months and right there, in the middle of the restaurant, they have...
