Classy Chinese.

This is a first class Chinese Restaurant. Well staffed with a nice bar and certainly no paper tablecloths. Not the cheapest around but a lovely atmosphere and beautiful food nicely presented. I can recommend the Singapore Prawns! Good place to go for a special night out as a couple or with the... read more

I used to get this all the time growing up but had it recently for the first time in years and it wasn't what I remember. I love lemon chicken and the lemon chicken I got was not what it's supposed to be. I had hardly any sauce at all and the chicken was soggy and bland. The sweet and... More

Firstly, let me say that we have used your restaurant for a long time for home delivery. We ordered a home delivery last night at 6.10pm. When it came 7.35pm my husband rang the restaurant to see how much longer our meal would be. The woman said that we should have already received our meals, and told my husband we'd... More

We ordered a home-delivery from Happy Inn on Friday 6th March. Steamed dim-sum, prawn toasts, chilli calamari and sweet and sour chicken with fried rice. It was all tepid on arrival (we live five minutes from the High St). The dim-sum were filled with some kind of cheap sausage-meat, and were like lead. The prawn toasts were greasy and burned....

This restaurant is one of my favourite in Penrith, The food is delicious, the location is great, but parking is a hassle, as there are never any on the main road, you need to go to the car park around the corner, but after eating so much, it is good to walk it off afterwards. The prices are very reasonable,... More

Delicious duck pancakes, yummy honey chicken that had much more chicken than batter compared to your usual suburban Chinese restaurant, tasty lamb with black bean, fantastic flounder, perfect rice. Disappointingly, no chopsticks! It seems they know what works for the majority of people, as this large restaurant was almost full on a Tuesday night. A very happy night out.

The food was delicious especially the Sate, it was hot and delivered when they said. The free bonus of Mini Spring rolls was greatly appreciated.
