Kevins Place would be my pick for local Chinese food. I don't think you can get great Chinese food any more so this place is good enough. The dry chilli beef is good. We get takeaway from here perhaps once a month. Have tried the other local Chinese but Kevins is the pick.

The rating is a direct reflection of my wife discovering a piece of hard greyish plastic in the soft shell crab. The food itself was decent with interesting flavours, ample servings and prompt service. Typical Chinese restaurant on par with the Chinese version of typical Aussie pub food. I would love to visit again. However, this doesn't negate the fact... More

I just got back from a three day eating holiday in Sydney's Chinatown. The food from Kevin's Place raises a good question in my mind "why did I go to Sydney to eat?" The specialties at Kevin's Place is certainly above par, even compared to Sydney's Chinatown. Their non specialties are OK. Nice but not something I would order again.... More

Kevin's is local to us and it's our go to celebration destination. We've never had a bad meal here. The dry chilli beef is to die for, the salt and pepper calamari is also fantastic. Love it here

We are regulars at Kevin's place. The food is consistently delicious, never had a bad run with them. The lemon chicken and satay beef are second to none. Just great.

There are two dishes that must be ordered at Kevins: Dry Chilli Beef and Salt and Pepper soft shell crab. These are honestly the best versions of these dishes I've ever had. Kevin's never disappoints. It's a basic eatery in every other respect, but the food is clean, cooked in a timely manner and delicious.

LOVE THIS PLACE as they sell my favorite Chinese dish - birds nest. My mother and I often have dinner here just to have birds nest. Food is fresh, service is friendly and quick!

Kevin's Place is another one of my favourite Chinese restaurants for either dining in or take away. It is across the road from the Kippax Shopping Centre. We dined there just before they closed for the last two weeks in January. I ordered a few of my favourite dishes - Salt & Pepper Soft shell crab, Fish fillets in Ginger... More

Kevins place is one of our regular visits. First time we went, we were impressed by the quality of the ingredients used and delicious dishes. So we have just kept going back for years. The hong kong sizzling steak is my favourite.
