This restaurant has been relatively consistent over years but our recent visit in May 13 was disappointing. Time has elapsed and thought we would give it another go. The service is and always has been excellent. Prompt and helpful. Our meal on this occasion was chilli quail (always great) wrapped prawns with chilli sauce (both were entrees, and for the... More

The menu is extensive and not expensive.(Not the cheapest, but reasonable) The food is excellent and the staff are very attentative and so polite. They were very busy but still managed to... More

Love Love Love this Restaurant. We only go here on Special Occasions but decided on the spurr of the moment to go. The food (Chinese) is without a doubt the best in Glen Waverley, if not the South Eastern Suburbs, the service is exceptional without being intrusive, and the price, although abit steep, can easily be justified with the amazing...

Brilliant food , attentive service and surprisingly intimate. We visited for a wedding anniversary and had lobster in a ginger sauce. Tender, plenty of food and a great wine list. I have also done a 40th Birthday there with a group of 12 and the service is just as attentive whether you are a big group celebrating , or a... More

I ordered a take away from here and I have to say it was extremely ordinary. Perhaps the food is nicer dining in.

For nearly $60, plus drinks, I... More
