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

We were a group of 10 cyclists and discovered this fantastic restaurant for dinner. We had cycled 100 klms that day so were hungry. We ordered a variety of dishes, plus spring rolls and every one was delicious. I don't think we left even a grain of rice on our plates. We all said we would definitely go there again... More

We have been coming here for close to 20 years and we are never disappointed. From the entrees of Food World spring rolls to the pork paper rolls and the deep fried spicy and salty squid, to my all time favourite main meal combination rice noodles I just love this place. My husband loves the wonton soups and all the... More
