I enjoy having this amazing restaurant around the corner. They don't deliver. But are happy if you ring through an order, its ready asap. Dining -in is my favourite, the ladies are effecient and happy to see you.

This is the best Chinese food in Cairns hands down. I've been coming here for years. As a Cairns local I can honestly say that you won't find better.

Excellent Chinese restaurant with great service away from the main center. Have tried a mixture of dishes from soups to main meals. I would highly recommend any of the salt and pepper options, the roast duck and any of the steamed dumplings. But anything you order will be great i am sure. 5/5 please try

Great dumplings, especially the seafood. Timing was spot on, we were served and on our way with ample time to get to the Rondo Theatre. Sweet and sour chicken was not the best choice, a bit dry and too much onion and vinegary peppers for our taste. Drinks menu was satisfactory and water service was excellent.

We've been on a trip for 10 days and this is the best and the most authentic Chinese restaurant we've had. The price is inexpensive and definitely worth it. The staff is really friendly too.

Realxing and quiet dining. Friendly staff. Extremely fast service. But the best part was the food. We had various dim sim for lunch with homemade ice creams for dessert. The vegetarian dish we tried was kind of ho-hum but the rest was very flavourful and as authentic cantonese as I have tasted. And the combo meal was really excellent value.... More

We are Cairns foodie locals. Xanadu is one of our very best and consistent restaurants we regularly visit. BYO which is great. Ben(owner/chef) is exceptional. Always has a grin which easily turns to a smile which easily turns to laughter!! His food is truly great. He takes great pride in his customer service attitude. Not to be missed. Foster Lee

Random visit on a Thursday night, 5 of us, find for the food itself - it is over priced greatly, although to be fair - you do get quite large portions. most of the meals were enjoyed although some were not. The Quail and the Shiitake Mushrooms with Green Asian Veges were the best contenders, however waiting ages for the... More

Over 30 people enjoyed the delights of Xanadu, 'Ben' the owner spoiled us on our 60th birthday celebration. Between the duck breast with mushrooms and the whole fish nothing was left. Great food, great service and a wonderful evening.
