This is a great restaurant. The staff are welcoming and know what they are doing. The menu is extensive and there is plenty of variety. The prices are reasonable and the servings are generous. Have been visiting here periodically since 2010 & this place has never disappointed.

The service was excellent and we had our food in no time. They had none of the dumplings left so we settled on the steamed wontons for entree which were not the highlight of the meal. The seafood birds nest was lovely and all components were delicious as was the fillet steak with peking sauce. We finished off with the... More

Very busy on a Sunday night and I did not have a booking. Nevertheless they managed to squeeze me in and went to some trouble to do so. The staff were obviously overworked but remained cheerful and helpful. Got my order in before the big group next to me and the food came quite quickly. The meal was delicious. Not... More

The service and food are very good but the decor is very old and dated, plastic table clothes, odd cutlery and seats older than my thirty something children. The prices are twenty first century it is time the decor was revamped to reflect the prices charged for the meals which are tasty and quickly served.

Friends took me to this restaurant and even though it was a Wednesday evening, they were crazy busy. We had to wait a little longer than the 15 minutes we were told (about 35 mins) but the staff didn't stop, busily taking orders at tables, at the counter, on the phone and handing out food. The food was fabulous and... More

Very popular with the locals. Been a patron for around 20 years. We visit Lismore frequently and have had great family get togethers here at the round table. Food is aways good, Classical Chinese. We will continue coming back.

Very quick and friendly service. We ordered takeaway. Chow mein, fried rice, battered prawns and steamed dim sims. The meals were delicious, my only complaint being that the fried rice had the grand total of 2 prawns. I specifically ordered the special fried rice after inquiring (and being assured) if it contained prawns. I guess 2 makes the plural of... More

This was a good restaurant but insufficient staff to cater for the diners. It took a long time for us to get drinks and as it had been a hot day, this was very noticeable. I had to go outside to make a phone call and when I came back in, we still didn't have drinks. The waiting time for... More
