A gem. The best family business in the hills.

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

Can't expect much for Chinese Food up here in the mountains ... For an Asian palate spoiled with the best in Asian cuisine the world over, what we had were pretty ordinary Cantonese fare ... But in saying that, I don't expect authenticity and quality in a mountain resort Chinese "cafe". To a Western palate, this place could well be... More

This is a great Chinese restaurant with delicious options available. It is the only Chinese restaurant I've been to where I haven't reacted allergy wise to the food. I love their chicken with steamed veggies and flat rice noodles its very good. Takeaway or sit down is available. Staff are lovely.
