“good food but crapy interior.”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

food was good but the interior was horrible. took ages for tables to be cleaned at times when my family goes there. we only go there because the food is great. good for takeaways, but not to dine in..

“Good Chinese”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Went here for a birthday. We sat upstairs and there was roughly 17 (yep you read that right) of us. It was cramped but when you are with good friends and family, you don't care. It did look a bit dated and old interior but the food is what you come for. I think roughly 12 dishes were ordered and it came to $20 a head. Loved the green beans with pork mince and olives! These are addictive!!! Can't fault any of the food ordered (sweet and sour pork, beef and black bean, black chilli chicken, sizziling beef?, chicken fried rice, chilli prawn - most of which was doubled)

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Ate here again recently after a few years away from home. The squid usually my favourite thing to eat in the city was far from fresh and pretty oily. The service was quick and friendly as always but you come here for the food, I hope it was a one off but have heard the same thing from a few others.
