An old but good favorite. Chinese meals are always tasty and original whilst still at a reasonable price. Just like the Chinese restaraunts I grew up with. Simple restaraunt for eat in, small but always full. Great for takeaways. Can't go wrong.

Have been in Darwin for 7 years and have had people give us rave reviews of this Chinese restaurant. However never found ourselves having a meal until recently my wife and I ordered some take away. With nothing short of great excitement we took a selection of items off the menu home only to find that it was essentially inedible.... More

Small restaurant, but great food. Bookings essential as most nights it is full. The salty fish chicken fried rice, sizzling beef & the omelette are amazing.

I have been coming here for years and tonight so disappointed not only in your prices but the quality of food.. Ordered hot & spicey squid, honey king prawns and combination fried rice with a bag of prawn crackers.. Prawn crackers bordering on stale and chewy.. Get better bags to maintain the crunch Hot & spicey squid dry and over... More

Had takeaway and was fast and friendly service. I found the food was a tad too sweet for my pallet..

My brother suggested I get our Chinese for this restaurant. We were visiting from Perth and buying a meal for 6 people. All means were very nice and in fact close to the best we have ever had.

Hi ordered 3 meals for the first time the other day. Heard lots of great things. The food was just way too bland. The mongolian beef tasted like rubber. Sorry had to let people know

You know the food must be great when the the order is taken by a Chinese person, there are Chinese cooks, the local Chinese people eat there and it's always busy. Great variety, great flavours and great value. It's only a small dining room, so take away is a good option.

This tiny family run restaurant located in a suburban shopping centre may not look like much, but the food is absolutely outstanding. The single chef, the father of the family, is never too busy to recommend only the freshest dishes, and creates some fantastic original meals as well as their extensive menu. Book ahead if you want to sit in... More

We booked a table for Chinese New Year with whole fish many days before the actual day. However, on the day, 20 minutes before our booking, they told us that they ran out, and essentially forgot our order. As a restaurant catering for this day, I feel that they should not be selling it to whoever is at the restaurant... More
