Another great food night for my family and I. A meal each plus 2 entres for 3 people is cheaper than one meal at other resturants in Wollongong. Just great food.

Very easy place to dine, inexpensive and good food. Asian style food, basic tables and chairs but you will find you go back there time and again.

Excellent Chinese food, best I've had in a long time. Large portions and great prices to boot!! Wish this place was in my hometown!! Very busy no frills restaurant, we went a bit later when it was quieter.

Nothing fancy here folks. Extensive menu covering a number of Asian countries but specialising in Chinese. Nothing fancy but my wife and I had an entree and two mains for $25 so do not expect more. Excellent food and value. You get what you pay for.

I'm pretty sure I've been visiting this place for 15 or so years. Yes it's cheap, yes it's not amazing atmosphere but its beautiful authentic Chinese food! Always make a trip in here when I go to Wollongong!

Meals are large, cheap and quick however the MSG in the food left me thirsty for hours afterwards. During my meal I tried to flag the attention of the staff for a drink but this seemed impossible so I helped myself to the fridge.

Great little place for a cheap eat, very fast and attentive service. Meals are delicious and come out in a timely fashion. Interesting entrees (mango and prawn crumbed rolls!) and awesome mains. Not spectacular to look at but tasty.
