If you are looking for flavor - go somewhere else- service was fine- but the two dishes tasted exactly the same- ordered chow Marin and chic with cashew nuts- and beyond bland.

We stayed 2 weeks in Port Douglas and just happened to come across this place one night looking for something to eat for tea. We are glad we did because it is some of the best Chinese we have ever eaten. Definitely worth it, also they do delivery to resorts in the area.

This is a good Chinese restaurant in the heart of Port Douglas. The quality of the food is pretty good, however the quantity isn't generous and the prices are a lot higher than the Chinese food found in other areas but are on par with Port Douglas prices. The menu is what you'd find at your local Chinese restaurant.

Be careful of the how much alcohol you order as it can be more expensive than the food. Seven of us went for dinner and we had two rounds. The beer ended up costing more than the food.

Would I go back? I wouldn't avoid it but I certainly wouldn't rush back. There are some other close by that I'd rate higher based on price and quantity, while of being similar quality.

Quite simply this is the worst and most expensive Chinese food I have ever had. Whilst the service was good and the staff friendly the food itself had zero flavor - absolutely no taste. Considering they obviously use the cheapest ingredients (canned vegetables) and charge a premium they must be making an absolute fortune. because it's the only Chinese restaurant in town (the other one apparently has closed). It was our last meal in Port Douglas after a week of lovely food so we left very disappointed.

Very nice food, nice and hot, didn't have to wait too long and it was very reasonably priced..We will probably visit PD again and try dining in; it really inviting from the front shop.
