My husband and I have dined in and also enjoyed the take-away menu from this restaurant on many occasions over the past 12 years. The meals are tasty, well presented and good value for money. The restaurant is great for couples, groups of friends or families.Staff are pleasant and very obliging.

This is our family's favourite restaurant. The restaurant is not easy to find but well worth the effort. The food is tasty, reasonably priced and the service is excellent.

Although I would understand why someone who didn't know this restaurant would potentially walk past being a bit concerned at the presentation of the local icon however the food is absolutely fabulous. Local knowledge often creates lengthy waits for take away and almost impossible to get a table without a reservation in peak times. This restaurant is highly recommended. The... More

It was our anniversary of 33 years and we were both looking forward to a nice meal. We had booked a table, and we arrived at 6pm. The place was very busy with lots... More

Have always bought my Special Fried rice from here but after the one I bought yesterday I will not be back. It was lots of rice, some onion a couple of prawns a piece of chicken, a piece of steak, 2 peas, I piece of corn &. 2 little specks of capsicum. Shocking for a large Special Fried rice.

This was my second attempt to get decent food from this place and it did not happen. Every dish has a weird taste. The rice is gluggy. The dim sims undercooked. The simple dish of sweet and sour pork rates like medicine. I am so cut. Spent over $90 for food for a few of us and no one will... More

We sat outside & were served by very friendly & helpful staff, the food tasted good although a little slow to arrive between courses, but then this place is always busy with take always as well as the restaurant. The portion sizes could be slightly larger too as they seem to have diminished slightly since our last visit, but would... More

Have been going here for years, the food is always good with traditional flavours Ken the owner and chef comes out to greet his customers all the staff are friendly and there is minimal wait times, we have never had to wait more than 45 mins for our many dishes to come out

Thank Tullo-Family
