The Mongolian lamb is superb, all other dishes I've tried were great also, I've eaten in a lot of Chinese resturuants in Canberra and none compare to this. Decor is outdated but who cares when your getting top class food like this. Highly recommended.

Great service, decor is very outdated inside and out. If you like Chinese then you will definitely enjoy this one, as long as you don't mind no frills.

Dropped in for some take away and was greeted by the friendliest staff I have come across in a long time. Big smiles and you are made to feel welcome. Standard Chinese restaurant but very good food. The order was delivered quickly and was an enjoyable meal. Recommended.

We where staying in Queanbeyan overnight and went here after reading these reviews. While the food is very good and tasty and the staff are quiet helpful. It comes near the great reviews it has received. The meals are on the large side.

A humble little place, not flash looking at all. The staff are great and the food is consistently terrific. We discovered this place three years ago and visit it often. Highly recommended

The food is always good. I am sure it has changed hands in all the years since I have first visited but the food is always good and I have never been disappointed. Friendly staff with a happy smile always willing to help.

Dined here on the recommendation of a local motel employee. On arrival greeted by warm and friendly staff. Decor is basic but comfortable. Wine list is limited but they are also BYO. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals which were also very generous serves. Very pleasantly surprised with the cost.
