Friday early evening family meal - sullen & unfriendly service, first course of dim sims & pancakes took 25 minutes, then the rice arrived, but no mains after 50 minutes! With two young kids we had to just give up, cancel remaining order & leave. No apologies from staff - didn't seem to care.

We have been going to this restaurant for years because the food is always very good, the service is friendly, helpful and nice. My favourite is Lamb Pancakes, they are spicy but delicious. The restaurant is on the first floor and there is no lift. However, the food is worth going upstairs and it is reasonable priced.

This place is pretty relaxed and low key- nothing fancy- just tasty, hearty and satisfying Chinese food. Enough dishes to choose from and decent prices. We were surprised how busy they were on a Wednesday night, particularly since the restaurant is upstairs above a buzzing plaza but once our food arrived we could see why this place was so popular....

Never before have I walked into a restaurant and been greeted with "yeah?" That's how most customers were greeted also. There were 6 of us, so we ordered 6 dishes and 1 fried rice. First dish came out after 6 minutes - it was the fried rice. Entree perhaps? After 10 minutes the 1st dish came. We ordered another fried... More

There is nothing good about this place. Even the name is misleading as I am not sure they have a kitchen, just a microwave and I would not call the dishes Chinese. But if you were to name it correctly, "Chinese Kitchen" would be renamed. "Reheated tasteless semi-Chinese" So the five of us sat down to what we thought would... More

Food was pretty good, especially the duck. But don't go there expecting good customer service. In fact, it was dreadful. Prior to this visit, we had been here many times over the years, without problem. On this occasion, we ordered three dishes, but the third didn't come out until we had finished the other two, and we only got it... More

Great selection of dishes that are always fresh tasting and well prepared. The only drawback on this restaurant is that when it gets busy the time to get the meals to the table can drift out. If time is not an issue then the wait is worth it.

So expecting to have long waiting times with a busy restaurant, wow was I proved wrong. The absolutely fantastic attentive staff with the best Chinese I've had. We must not forget the owners Leely on the floor as the hostess and Chan the Head Chef the duo produce wonderful family friendly focused eatery and top quality food. This is my... More

Another great night at our unpretentious, local Chinese restaurant. We rang to say we were running late - not a problem. This BYO restaurant is well suited to family groups, but enjoyable for anyone who wants an easy, low key night out with good food. Can't resist the sizzling Mongolian lamb, and tonight we paired it with wonderfully fresh vegetables... More
