We had a birthday lunch on a Saturday but were quite disappointed with the service. We had to ask the waiter 3 times for a pot of tea and 4 times just to get chilli sauce. The food was OK but you could do better at restaurants within walkung distance. Agree with alot if the other reviews.

This was a birthday dinner for family and a friends. We rang to ask if the restaurant was BYOG and they said yes. When we got there the waiter seemed miffed that we had brought our own and found the corkage was $10 per bottle. We found the staff to be cool and not particularly helpful.
We'd heard that they did great bbq peking duck and suckling pork so ordered what we thought would be the highlights of the meal. The WHOLE peking duck we ordered was good but they sliced enough to give us 2 small pancakes each (5 people) and the rest disappeared back to the kitchen! The suckling pork was the most miserable cold tiny pieces of clammy crackling (no meat) set in the middle of some cold jellyfish. Very unappetising! For nearly $50 per head without any drinks it was not worth it. We enjoyed the rest of the dishes but definitely wouldn't go back again.

Ordered the meals, told that mains would turn up before the entre?
Mains turn up two out of three wrong. Then one of the entre didn't turn up.
The waitress was a little bit miffed when we finish eating but wanted another drink, couldn't wait to get us out, so much so as soon as I stood up my chair disappeared.
The toilets smelt like I was in Asia, so they were appropriate. My wife told me that the ladies as covered in vomit and not nice.
Meals were also overpriced for what you received (when it turned up).

I decided to go to this restaurant before a concert mid week. What a disappointment. On arrival the maître de grunts at the customer, Décor dated, Table is a fold out type that gouges the customers knee as you sit down, The waitress bumps/ shoves the customer from behind and doesn't even acknowledge or apologise, The food order is taken with another grunt, The meal arrives and sits on the table to get cold while waiting for the rice. The meal is like a stir fry from the 1970's with frozen vegetables and bland gelatinous sauce. Yuk. $70 for 2 dishes rice and 2 beers. Overpriced rubbish don't go!

We had lunch for 2 here. We really enjoyed it and for $30.00 we thought it was good value. The staff don't speak very good English though so this was a bit of a challenge when asking for specific food. Overall we enjoyed it.
