Have been here a few times and the food is always Fresh, Hot and Great Value. The one thing that always gives me confidence when going into an Asian restaurant for a meal is the amount of Asians eating there themselves. Well this place does not disappoint. It does not look like much from the outside or the inside but... More

We ate here again the other night. We arrived at 5pm. The floor was covered in rice, obviously from the lunch time diners. Even by my poor housekeeping standards, it was quite dirty. Tables were spotless and service fabulous as always. You cannot park directly outside and will be lucky to find a spot across the road but we always... More

Had a nice dinner with friends, tried different pizzas which were quite good. Also, had pork ribs, which were just okay.

This is the cheapest Asian food in Wollongong. The service is fast, the food is fast. This is not gourmet dining but it is filling.

We frequent the World Food regularly. The food is always consistently good. Whilst you can not fault the food , it is about time they did a refurbishment. It is getting a little dated and drab now. The reasonable prices reflect this, however after over 10 years of going it would be nice to see some upgrade of the environment.

Been coming to this place for 20years. If its 5 star Asian cuisine you are after. Don’t bother. This place specialises in food which is quick, clean and cheap. It’s noisy & busy where the buzz of the conversation and the clatter of chopsticks on china only add to the atmosphere. There’s plenty of dining options, sweet through to spicy... More

Been coming here for last 15 years.Most of their mains are $10,everything taste decent, meals always come out within 10min no matter how busy they are .
