At least they are honest

I was a little taken aback by the bold "All meals contain MSG" written on the menus, however I give the operators credit: they are honest. I had a reasonable meal which was comparatively priced for the location. It would be a hard choice between this restaurant and the other option on the opposite... read more

I went there on a tour with a group of about 10 people in Jan 2015. We had dinner there containing 6 dishes, 1 soup and plain rice. I must say the quality of the food was terrible. I'm a Chinese. I know what good Chinese food taste like. Those are the poor quality Chinese food. They tasted plain and... More

Love the food here, particularly the home made dim sims! Definitely recommend stopping by, particularly at dinner time for a nice atmosphere. It's right near the water too, so the location is amazing!

We were on vacation in Philip island for 8 days. Decided to have Chinese for a change on our 6th day eventhough the prices on the menu was at least 40% more expensive than Melbourne. It was our worse experience, service was bad. Food was oily and presentation was horrendous.

Ordered takeaway and the portion of their fried rice is pathetic for a large bowl. Food is quite oily and as an Asian whose main staple is rice and noodles, we felt their food is mediocre. Prices is on the high side as well. Regretted our choice for that night. Would not visit again.

Went to this Chinese restaurant with a group of 12 friends over the busy Christmas/new year period. We were very pleased that they would take our booking over this time because there was so many of us. Sadly, we were extremely disappointed by their service, food and overall atmosphere. The restaurant itself is quite dirty, cheap looking and unkept. The... More

Went in this chinese restaurant at 1:30pm. There were no other customers. As we sat down, we were told by staff that it closes at 2:00pm so we have hurry up. Any way food came very fast. Asked for some chilli sause and were told that it would cost us extra $2.00. Never experienced any other restaurant charging for chilli... More

This place had the Worst Chinese food I've had anywhere on the planet. It was late and the restaurant was a bit empty so I thought it would be OK, I was so wrong. Only gets one star simply because I can't give a zero. Walk past and try another restaurant.
