My family are over from Ireland and my Nieces really wanted a chinese meal. We decided to visit this restaurant and what a huge disapointment. The food was inedible, covered in slime and we left most of it. The staff lacked any interest in their job, never questioned why food was left, just gave us the bill without a care in the world. This is without doubt the worst restaurant I have ever visited in my life and would not recomend this to anyone.

Reading some previous reviews I cannot help that they are talking about the previous ownership. The current owners and people who work in this restaurant are very nice, highly attentive and provide very good food and we're comparing this with top Chinese restaurants in Australia where only the best will do. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a good Chinese meal and a cosy atmosphere unlike the the 1970's style Chinese place down the road.

One of the worst meals ever, cold plates, cold staff and mediocre food at best. On the way to the dirty toilets I had to use the greasy banister. Will never eat there again.
