Needs to maintain the previous standard

I’ve visited again recently. The restaurant is under new management. I had the combination chow mein with crispy noodles and the combination short and long soup. The dishes were overall quite OK but they did seem to use more oil than previously and perhaps a request could be put through to reduce... read more

This used to be a local favourite - good Australian style Chinese food - not for the purists but reliably tasty, cheap and always friendly. Under new owners the quality of the food has deteriorated significantly, the local atmosphere has been destroyed by a karoke machine that is completely out of place, all the friendly staff have been replaced, and...

We dropped in late on a Friday night and found a little gem in the midst of the Coogee restaurant scene. Good food, reasonable prices and served quickly was what we required, and this place fitted the bill.

Great place to drop in after a day on the beach and grab a tasty, reasonably priced Chinese. Food is served really fast so perfect if you have hungry kids!

Having been served a dish with pieces of frozen meat scattered throughout an otherwise piping hot meal and being declined any form of refund/discount by the ranting owner, I can vouch for this being one of the worst Chinese dining experiences imaginable. Don't!!!!

We normally have home delivery from this restaurant. It's our favourite Chinese and has been for many years. The large spring rolls are a must. Eating in is a little basic but the food makes up for it.

I have been going to "Joycies" (only name I know it by) since I was born... 36yrs! It's a true institution in Coogee. Old fashioned, nothing fancy Chinese. Short soup will always be my favourite dish, home made spring rolls are to die for and husband loves the old fashioned fried rice. Prices are very reasonable. Even though we have... More

Nothing fancy here with the decor. Not high class at all. After all, this is good old fashion Chinese. Its been in Coogee for over 30 years. Eastern Sea is all about the food and reasonably priced as well. Many (Aussie) locals eat here all the time and that's really all you need to know. Plenty of take-away going out... More

When you feel like good Chinese food nothing else would do and after a three hour walk to Bondi Beach and back I was starving. As a Canadian, traveling in Australia, sometimes you don't have access to WiFi and therefore a connection to a myriad of fellow Interneter's take on local food. I definitely recommend searching online review's before venturing... More
