Good food but pricey

Food was delicious. Very friendly staff and everything was served hot and fresh. The Garlic Chicken was beautifully cooked and had loads of fresh vegies - a HUGE amount of garlic in it but I like that so it was perfect for me (don't try it if you're not garlic obsessed). Prices were a little high... read more

Had a combination meal which I found to be quite tasteless. I enjoy Chinese food and expect the various flavours in a combination to blend well. In this case it was all quite bland.

Have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times and had takeaway. The food is good but very expensive. Everytime we have takeaway something always leaks through the bag and when you unpack the food the containers are oily and messy. When we have eaten in the restaurant it seems that the priority is the takeaway as this keeps travelling... More

Visited on a road trip stop over. Had the house 'Bordertown' special with fried rice. Honestly tasted what you'd expect from a shopping centre fast food joint. Spring roll tasted like meat pie, the fried rice was plain and boring, and finally the 'spicy sizzling special' was bland and artificial tasting. Service was adequate. Not worth the visit or the...

The food is genuine Chinese, the owners are long term residents of Bordertown. Friendly, obliging and sincere. We eat here regularly also have take away. Always fresh ingredients.

My family and I were very pleased with the food and service here. The staff were very accommodating and understanding of my seafood allergies, as well as friendly. We didn't have to wait long for our order, and the meals were very reasonably sized, and tasted great too. The price was also very reasonable, as we fed a family of... More

Eat in or Take Away. You can ask for something Special even though it's not on the menu. We were well recommended by the Bordertown Abode Parkland Motel & we were so happy.
