Still great food after all these years!

I have been coming here for over 15 years. Although I dont live in Wollongong anymore, everytime I'm in town this is a must place for me. The food is always great. The service is quick. And it's a nice cheap eatery. Highly recommended.

Have been going here for years and it takes me back to travels in Asia. Great squid and love the combination Szechuan with rice noodles. Good value.

We regularly visit here. The food is always tasty, portions are huge, service is unbelievably fast and at $10 a meal, you've got to be happy! Decor is pretty ordinary, but hey, I'd prefer them to focus on what they currently are. You don't go here on a romantic date. But for a quick/cheap meal after shopping or after watching... More

We eat here regularly and recommend the Honey Chicken! The service is great and you do not wait long for your meal. It is easy to take young children here. There is a bathroom available. The tables are close together. It's cosy! Most of the time, we park in side streets not far away. Make sure you over order so... More

Food came pretty quick and is very well priced for the quality of food. I wish the food they had labelled spicy was actually spicy instead of being insipid. Would definitely recommend to those who don't like spicy or hot food.

Food world doesn't have the prettiest shop front and probably isn't the place to take your valentine, but it is a great restaurant. Busy, cheap and massive delicious meals. For $10 you will get a meal that will be a struggle to finish. A great place when you're after that noisier outing with mates or kids.

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.
