This time we had Chicken with Cashew Nuts, Sizzling King Prawns, Mixed Vegetables Stir Fry in garlic and large combination fried rice. All the dishes were delish and came in huge plates. White table clothes make the restaurant... More

Stopped in for lunch, was greeted and order placed for takeaway. 10mins later, food was ready, hot and delicious, I had ordered the lunch special of sweet and sour pork and it was great. Pork wasn't layered in flour as most Chinese restaurants try to pass off to customers. Husband ordered special fried rice and an omelette. Food was fresh... More

Food is good for a very good price. Costumer service is also good! The portions are big, ordered one main and a small fried rice for two people and we could't finish it. Great value for money.

Best Chinese we have found in Bathurst. We previously went to another restaurant but so glad we decided to try Chef Li. Food is cooked to perfection. Our favorites are the dumplings, combination fried rice & garlic chicken.

Have only had lunch here but the $9.90 lunch specials offer variety and the meals are a good size. Service is fast and the restaurant also has an extensive wine list.
