We were staying in one of the apartments in the block that this restaurant resides in. Ordered a large take away order. 20 mins to cook, easy enough to collect. Fairly average food to be honest, not bad but not a knock out either. Lovely location with a great outlook if you were dining in. Place seemed pretty busy, always... More

Got recommended to try this place during our overnight stay in Bowen and sadly we were disappointed. Hubby got satay chicken and the sauce was like water and I got cashew chicken and the chicken was not real pieces of chicken, it consisted of those processed thin strips of caterers meat. Coconut rice tasted like coconut flavouring was used as... More

It is billed as an "international" restaurant but all of the dishes we tried were pretty much the same sort of stir-frys in the same overly sweet glutinous sauce. It was definitely... More

Had lunch on two occasions, today we had Thai chli prawns, sizzling garlic scallops with fried rice, beautiful meal. We had Thai prawn salad with crispy noodles two days earlier awesome. Pricing is good, service is great plus it has a bar with reasonable prices. Views are to die for.

Got quite a large takeaway from the restaurant tonight and was served by the male owner. Not a smile, hello or good evening. Not even a grunt!! Absolutely terrible service. Won't be going back even for the view.

This restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. There was plenty of choices on the Chinese Restaurant's menu, and we were seated and served our meals promptly. The restaurant has a lovely setting, however as we were there at night, we did not get to enjoy it as much as lunch time diners would. Decoration is very... More

Excellent Chinese food; outstanding environment; good air conditioning. They also provide for takeaway Chinese food and we took advantage of that service as well as the dinning in - over two nights.

Very poor service, meals took a long time and weren't all brought out together. We were at a table of 4 with 4 different meals and nobody enjoyed any of them.
