Never fails

Have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Have heard that it is reputed to be the best Chinese food outside of Sydney. My visits have ranged from two to banquets for many and the quality of the food and service never diminishes. TOPS.

This restaurant has been my favourite Chinese haunt for decades. The food is consistently of a high quality, and the service is friendly. Despite sometimes being extremely busy, there are usually no undue delays. As to recommendations, try the sizzling seafood combination - it is a great meal, generous serving and good value

Ordered take away from the counter in the hope if getting some nice fresh Chinese but despite the quick cook time that's about where the positives ended, honey prawns were soggy and stuck together, rice was not tasty at all , maybe just unlucky but it was disappointing and won't be back.

Service should be part of any basic dining experience. So should cleanliness. On arrival, we were seated at a dirty table. I asked to be moved to another table and the waitress ignored me and carried on with other duties. We asked (who we assumed was the owner) to be relocated to another table, and he happily agreed, and apologized... More

Dinner during an overnight stop in Kempsey. This place is easy to find in the main street (now the Macleay Valley Way), on the corned of Forth St (best to park in Forth St). Menu is typical, plenty of dishes, and the price is reasonable. Our large special fried rice, sweet and sour pork and satay chicken was $35 and... More

This local Chinese Restaurant has served consistently good meals for years. I wouldn't take any notice of Alex M's review. Locals frequent this restaurant in droves because Mark and Ron Wan give them the meals that they want. It's a great place for a party banquet style.

Lucky to have this resturant in my town, have been going there for years and always happy with the food. Credit to the boys to be going for so long and still going strong.

We were stopping over in Kempsey and wanted a good country-town Chinese! Ordered all the usual - lemon chicken, Mongolian lamb, stir fry vege and even the Australian meal of roast chook for a fussy kid. The lamb was ok but the rest were really average - tasted a bit like microwave specials, definitely not made from scratch anyway. The... More
