Good old fashioned meal with great service

We were the first to arrive at dinner (5:30pm). The menu was nothing too gourmet, but what we did order was devoured; Duck in Pecking Sauce, Special Fried Rice and Mini Spring Rolls. This place is an institution- we found out it's been around 47 years. In that time the decor hasn't changed, and... read more

This Chinese has been in business, run by the same people, for decades, and it is not surprising. A favourite haunt of the locals, and very busy for dining in of takeaway. The service is friendly, the menu is honest and very extensive, and the prices are very reasonable. Most importantly, the food is very good! Try the four-in-one, or... More

This restaurant has been here for over 30 years and still great, and the same family as well. The food is away fresh, and service good.I personal like the down stairs section. Don't change a thing. Will be back.

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
