“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Super friendly staff. Very good timeliness of food delivery. Minus a star as we dined at the 1800hrs sitting and there wasn't enough time for chefs to prepare our dessert before the 2000hrs sitting.
Otherwise excellent portion size. You won't go hungry. Enjoy!

“Good service with average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

I must say the staff here were excellent but this was not followed through by the food which was just average.

“Terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

The service was ok except the Asian girl. The dishes wasn't nice at all. Fried rice with hard rice noodles was so salty! Wouldn't recommend to friends at all!

“Must be one of the best Chinese Restaurants I've been to.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Friendly staff, very helpful as to choice of wine and food. We (two) shared the main course and it was plenty. This kept the price down for us and meant we could enjoy an experience we might have otherwise thought was out of our range. If we're staying in Lakes Entrance again I could think of nothing better than another visit to this delightful restaurant.
