Went back to Tongs after 12 years and it hasn't changed a bit - thank goodness!!! The decor is fab 80's retro along with the music - where else in the world can you listen to 'I've got a brand new combine harvester' whilst dining out in 2012. As always, because the food is cooked fresh, you do have to wait a while - in the old days I'm told people used to bring games and cards to pass the time - but my goodness it is delicious. I'm no fan of chinese food in the UK, all the MSG etc, but there was no sign of it here. The portions are super sized and the fried ice cream is to die for. It's BYO with no corkage so what more can we ask for. It's a legend amongst the Broome locals and has been here since time began so I can't be the only one to think this way.

We had been warned of the off-putting exterior, so that posed no problem and the interior decorations were 1970's cute.

However, the food was NOT good Cantonese food. There was virtually no seasoning in any of the food and it all came our very bland. The signature dish of Grilled Prawns and Mango, turned out to be tinned sweet mango and the prawns were bay shrimp size. In the town of Broome, surely fresh Mango could have been used? I saw beautiful very large banana prawns in the supermarket at $25 per Kg, so I am not sure why real prawn sized prawns were not used in this dish.

In all a disappointing meal and it was not cheap either!
