Busy on the island...they managed to get us in ?!? I was impressed. I should not have been. We were seated quickly and that may have been the best part of the experience. The staff, whilst doing their job, were not at all what I would consider friendly not professional. The food... well , have you... read more

Beware! Restaurant is packed from Chinese tour groups not because food is good. The food is worse than Dollar Chinese food. Service was extremely rude. First I went to change plate because the plate is full of lobster scrape. I personally bring the plate to waitress because there is zero service in the restaurant. The waitress is unhappy that she...

I've never had green honey chicken before. It was awesome! Almost as good as the crab stick sheets and sliced floury fish cakes in the seafood dish. The blind old people seemed to love the place.

Dined on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was bustling with many large tables of bus groups. By 8.30pm the restaurant was quite empty and even a a couple turned away from dining in. The menu is adequate the food is good but not outstanding. The restaurant is licensed but the wine list consisted of a choice of 5 white... More

I went there on a tour with a group of about 10 people in Jan 2015. We had dinner there containing 6 dishes, 1 soup and plain rice. I must say the quality of the food was terrible. I'm a Chinese. I know what good Chinese food taste like. Those are the poor quality Chinese food. They tasted plain and... More

I was a little taken aback by the bold "All meals contain MSG" written on the menus, however I give the operators credit: they are honest. I had a reasonable meal which was comparatively priced for the location. It would be a hard choice between this restaurant and the other option on the opposite side of the street.

Love the food here, particularly the home made dim sims! Definitely recommend stopping by, particularly at dinner time for a nice atmosphere. It's right near the water too, so the location is amazing!

We were on vacation in Philip island for 8 days. Decided to have Chinese for a change on our 6th day eventhough the prices on the menu was at least 40% more expensive than Melbourne. It was our worse experience, service was bad. Food was oily and presentation was horrendous.
