Great Food

Great food at this local Chinese restruant. Offers both take away & dine in. Can be slow at times but a great way to feed the family.

Came here while working in Bordertown recently was told by the locals it wasn't a bad place but pricey. Was very pricey more expensive then even the 4-5 star Adelaide Chinese restaurants and food was bland and rice was undercooked and tasteless. Honey chicken had a watery sauce which was far from Honey and you had to pour it on... More

We have eaten there a few times and the food is really good. We thought it was a little expensive at first but the size of the meals are large, for our takeaway we shared a main meal with some rice and soup. Staff were always welcoming and friendly. When we dined in we did wait a while for our... 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.

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 but the food was... More

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...
