Had a great meal here. 27 years strong. What a great restaurant. They even provided both a Chinese and English tax invoice! Staff were excellent. Great meal.

We were there last Tuesday and thought we would try their Yum Cha for lunch, it's not true Yum Cha, you order and they cook it, my Dim Sims were raw in the middle and tasted awful, the fried rice had NO taste, terrible experience.

Like some reviewers here we did not check the prices before sitting down but taking into account the decor and location decided to proceed and order. My wife selected scallop with vegetables ($37) and I chose the sizzling fillet steak chinese style ($36) with steamed rice ($9) accompanied by an unknown bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc which took the bill...

We dined here recently on a visit to cairns. Food was good but very expensive. Expect to pay $27 for typical main. They also have love food from the tank. $328 for a live lobster seems ridiculous and I cant imagine anyone paying that price but I guess Asian tourists may pay it. I found menu a little limited to...

We had Dinner at this Restaurant & won't be coming back. Total Rip off. I could not believe most basic Chinese dishes; we were charged around $35.00 each. We should have looked more closely at prices before being seated. We paid $240.00 for our Family of 6; includes 3 x Children. The Bill was written in Asian & when we... More

Waiters who don't appear to understand English completely stuffed our Dinner up. This pace is Over Priced & pathetic Service. $145.00 for 2 Adults & 2 Children for the rubbish they dished out; was not good. We were completely ignored; but it was not hard to notice Waiters appeared to fuss over the other 98% of Asians eating. We were... More

Dinned last night with a group of six and we all enjoyed the food. Service was first class and wine list was reasonably priced. All and all a very good night.

Decent menu and choice . Food was pretty tasty and the service friendly . Let down by long wait -30 mins - for one of the mains which came when we had finished . Have a card surcharge so pay cash .

A first class chinese restaurant, first class food, we had Mongolian beef and it arrived on a sizzeling plate and the taste did not disappoint. Very professional owners greet all the guests. The people at the table next to us ordered half a Peking Duck which the owner brought out on a trolley and wearing white gloves and proceeded to... More
