Fabulous, cheap and cheerful suburban eatery.

It is a good idea to book for this popular little gem. It is licensed with a basic range of beer, wine and soft drinks. The menu is diverse with an extra page of specials.

I have been here a few times for lunch and the food is excellent and prices very reasonable. This place gets very busy at lunchtime so bookings are advisable. The service is good even when it’s busy. Some of my favourite dishes include Wasabi Mayo Prawns (delicious), Pop Chicken and Five Spice Calamari. I want to try this place for... More

Extensive menu with good specials, can recommend both the tasty Beef/ginger and Calamari. Pleasant ambiance with happy friendly staff. Reservation necessary for this popular well priced restaurant in good location with surrounding street parking

It's just around the corner but it took as a month to discover it. Now I would go there every day if I could. We had the small bites specials spinach dumplings with beef and seared scallops and big bites special, fried brown rice with sweet corn and anchovies which were just amazing. Hit the spot. The staff is very... More

Started with a Tofu appetizer in a light broth that hit the spot on a cold rainy evening. The fried rice and honey beef entree were too much for me to eat on my own, but boy were they delicious. The service was efficient, friendly and attentive. The staff made very good suggestions and encouraged me to have a Taiwanese... More

Good food at a reasonable price. Very attentive staff! Love the Honeyed Crispy Beef! Fried rice is a very generous and fresh serve. My only qualm after 3 visits was watching a server wipe table scraps onto the floor. Really?!!!!

We visited with friends and shared a couple of entrees, four mains and desserts. The 'pop chicken' and '5 spice calamari' were the stand outs but everything we ordered was inventive and delicious. Prices were quite reasonable and BYO wine is accepted. This place is really busy, with a steady stream of take aways walking out the door and queues... More
