We chose the Chinese food option and shared a couple of dishes. We were there on a Thursday night and it was a popular place. Quick service. Food was hot when brought to our table. Casual, sit down service. You order and pay at the counter and your food is brought to you at the table.

big menu large meals and excellent prices. If you are a RSL member the restaurant does not give members discount as it is off meals as it is a leased out area ,however the bar does give RSL discount.

If a basic meal is all your after then you will find it at our RSL. Go for the Chinese menu as they are far better Asian cooks than most of the Australian meals I've eaten before.
