“Amazing Asian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Each course was amazing! And full of flavour. The Tempura oysters were outstanding and my wife loved the garlic prawns. We had Vietnamese fillet steak, salmon in ginger and shallots, fried chicken in peanut sauce and garlic squid. All were of an exceptional standard. Have eaten in Sydney and Cabramatta over the last 30 years and found the high quality and flavours here phenomenal. The service was excellent and host Paul very attentive. Definitely eat here! Will be back even though we live 75 mins away.

“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

sits in a non-descript area, however there is no finer Asian in Newcastle. Try the curried affair chicken or curried noodles - perfect. It offers Thai, Chinese and even Balinese cuisines however all seem to be first class.

“Tasteless and expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Recently got take-a-way from here and what a disappointment. The honey king prawns still had there tails on (never had this before from any Chinese restaurant), couldn't tell which was the peking steak and the Mongolian lamb as the Mongolian lamb was so tasteless. Fried rice was anaemic. This restaurant used to be exceptional but this last episode has put me off for life. It was also $30.00 more expensive than other restaurants for the same amount of food. If you want a better Chinese experience go down the road to the Emerald Gardens at Wests or into King Street to Chinois.
