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

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

We chose this restaurant after reading reviews in trip advisor, but the interior decor is pretty much your average Aussie country town Chinese restaurant NOT the fancy looking place in the photo. Thought we must have had the wrong place briefly. However the meal was decent and actually pretty good for a country town, as others have described.

Stayed in Bathurst for one night and decided to have takeaway dinner from Chef Li's. Ordered king prawns in oyster sauce, dumplings and Singapore noodles. The king prawns and dumplings are excellent and valued for the price charged, with generous portions. The Singapore noodles were average quality. While waiting for the takeaway to be prepared we were offered water and... More
