Hi bought takeout from Chef Li and like most restaurants always order an extra and didn't need to here. We got 4 meals out of our takeway. Brilliant food!

I have visited my son & his girlfriend 3 times in 2014 in Bathurst and this is the first restaurant that was enjoyable. Very pleasant staff and the food was to die for. My other half is vegetarian and very fussy and he couldn't rate it high enough. And the price.... fantastic. Well done Chef Li and we will spread... More

Very welcome greeting on entering and very hospitable hosts. I ordered take away and was offered a place to sit and wait and was bought a glass of water. Food was good and generous servings. I'd happily eat here again.

Disappointed to say the least. What once was an excellent venue, is now a shadow of its former self. The service is very good, but the food is now a major letdown. We had Chinese dumplings as entree, Honey king prawns, lamb with black pepper sauce and fried rice .The dumplings were ok, but the honey king prawns terrible all... More

Everything is always cooked hot and fresh and sooo yummy! Last time i visited, I ordered the salt and pepper prawns (prawns was nice and fresh which you don't always... More

I have been going to Chef Li for years and years. I used to rave about the food. Since Chef Li sold the restaurant, the food quality has declined considerably :( It is disappointing because their food used to be so full of flavour. It is not bad chinese by any means, but it isn't what it used to be.

Visited this restaurant to check it out personally after reading the reviews. It does not disappoint. The prawns are definitely super fresh. I had king prawn noodles. Was delighted to get such good prawns inland. I have also taken a photo of the place since the original photo is definitely not Chef Li's. In the evenings, parking is easy along... More
