Hearing it had changed hands we felt we should try the new style Sky King.. Nothing fancy, but every dish was tasty, the servings were reasonably sized and the plates were heated ( a big tick as it is something many restaurants neglect) $3.50 a head for Chinese tea seemed steep so we stuck to water -guess it's the lack...

Used to love this place and it hadn't hit the mark for a while on its service & food. New owners in town and the difference in the food was amazing. Same menu's but a whole new look and thankfully some nice tastes coming out of the dishes. My partner had the crunchy lemon chicken and it was beautifully presented... More

Step back to a pretend Aussie/Chinese restaurant of 1980. The interior design was a joke. The atmosphere was nonexistent. The food....had no flavour at all, was full of oil, lacking in ingredients, no aroma, bland and unforgiving. I truly believe our food had been taken from the fridge and heated in the microwave. No one at our table would eat... More

I eat here weekly and love it. Its close to my home so very convenient. I love asian food so its all good for me. Restaurant is clean and well appointed. The food is good as is the value. The owner is welcoming and friendly service is good BYO as well. I highly recommend this place.

No worth the wait, after making a phone order over the phone the young girl advised me it would be half an hour until it was ready. Getting there on time, I then had to sit there and wait for an extra 50 minutes before I go my meal. While waiting I had to sit there with other unhappy customers... More

We chose this place for takeout on the basis of the reviews here. I have to say I could not disagree more about the food, other than the biggish serving size. Small pieces of deep fried squid buried in poorly cooked oily batter, grey looking beef with bland sauce and the saddest looking chicken satay skewers I have seen. I... More

Went to sky king on the recommendation of others. Food was a bit pricier than first imagined ($18-28 per main)but that maybe standard in Tas- yet to find out. Service was definitely warm, friendly and quick. Food was fresh, well cooked. I found my meal a little bland but I like big flavours. Good serving size and overall not bad.... More

This is a pretty average chinese restaurant. Very tired decor. The food was ok - just. We had the garlic prawns - and there werent many of those on the plate and the chicken in oyster sauce with fried rice. This is a BYO restaurant, which we weren't aware of when we got there, so couldn't even have a glass... More
