We frequently order take out or dine at the Hoi Shing, the food is absolutely delicious, fairly priced and has always been really quick to arrive. The staff are always friendly and helpful with any questions. Check out the "chefs specials" if you are dining in - if you are ordering take away they have a value dishes available which... More

We visited this Chinese restaurant for takeaway meals on a Saturday evening. We chose the daily specials of satay beef and fried rice and Thai chicken and fried rice along with some mini spring rolls. These meals were good sized serves and the whole lot only cost $28.00. We both found the food to be very tasty and of good... More

We ordered takeaway last night and it was delicious. I always find Chinese restaurants to be hit and miss but this place was great. We ordered Mongolian Lamb, Honey Chicken and Fried Rice and it was $42AU and loved it all.

The prawn special was amazing. The cleanliness wasn't the best, the table needed to be wiped down before we were seated. Staff were friendly and prices were reasonable.

Oh....this is a beautifully set out restaurant with all sized round tables, very nicely decorated. To top that off the food was tasty as Chinese dinners should taste like. The spring rolls were the old style kind and every dish was very yummy. Will be coming back here again more than one night next time :)

Very disapointed with our takeaway last Saturday night. The place was pumping and huge line up so we thought this will be great. We had Hoi Shing about 18 months ago and was good....but this wasn't acceptable. Yes - good fresh veges in the dishes, but Ginger Scallops were small and grey with chunks of ginger(raw), Salt & Pepper Squid... More

Mongolian lamb was enjoyable, nice to have vegetables other than loads of onion like many other Chinese restaurants. Disappointing fried rice, tasted very dry like rice was old, not enjoyable. combination chow mein was flavoursome.
