Fairy Mountain Chinese Restaurant now moved to Monbulk Victoria

We had previously been patrons of this restaurant when it was at Olinda. There was a hyatus of 12 or 18 months from when they closed down at Olinda until they re-opened at Monbulk. The new owners are relatives of those from Olinda. The restaurant is well set out with enough room to move without... read more

This place has now moved to Monbulk from Olinda......lucky Monbulk. A brief lunch visit confirmed that hinges a re pretty much as they were. Pretty good. Nice ambience, excellent menu, linen, good service.....and top notch Chinese. Great ingredients, excellent fresh vegetables, authentic saucing. Not cheap, but the quality shines through. I would have appreciated a sit down lunch menu -... More

Simply excellent Chinese food at fantastic value and wonderful honest and genuine service. A diverse menu gives lots of options and caters for all needs. Atmosphere is lovely too for families or couples.

Good value, satisfying portions. The homemade dim sims are very nice, as is the sweet and sour chicken. The vegetables are fresh and the meat tender. And what a beautiful and unique name for a Chinese restaurant!

As locals we enjoy going to this restaurant. The little touches add to the whole dining experience e.g. linen tablecloths / napkins. We took our own bottle of wine and corkage $5 is very reasonable. The waitress was busy but always friendly and obliging and our meals were delicious. Meals are dearer than usual Asian fare, but well cooked and... More

Drove up to Olinda looking for somewhere to stop for tea. So glad it was here! Such a neat little restaurant. Staff were very friendly, polite and provided great service. Even if the food was average (which is certainly wasn't!) they would have made up with it by their great Customer Service. Food was absolutely delicious! Had the Peking Duck... More
