So based on its rating here we were really looking forward to this meal. I was raised on Chinese restaurant food (sometimes three times per week) so I rate myself a pretty good judge ... It was nice but nothing out of the ordinary and far far from the best I've ever eaten, particularly for the price.

Entrees are about $7 for two pieces and nothing out of the ordinary. Mains start at $17 and portion sizes were average not generous as stated here. Our salt and pepper king prawns were bordering on burnt and the veges in the sizzling pepper steak were soggy not crisp and crunchy as you'd expect.

Over all it was a nice meal at just over $100 for four people - entrees and mains only. If this is the best Chinese in Caloundra I'd suggest you read my other reviews and head south for some really great Chinese.

Well what can say.. doesn't look all that appealing from the outside but once you walk in your in a whole new atmosphere. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Food comes out reasonably quick. The best Chinese in caloundra highly recommend and to try the crispy beef in special Chinese sauce and sweet and sour pork yum!!!

Don't let the plain decor put you off this little gem. The ingredients are the freshest, cooked to perfection...never overdone and mushy. There is a great selection on the menu and the service we have experienced has been speedy. Have tried other Chinese in the area and nothing compares...

I wish we had started coming here sooner! We dropped in and ordered take away. The service was excellent and we were given a time of twenty minutes to wait. Our food was ready when we came back fifteen minutes later. We had ordered crumbed duck, chicken in special Chinese sauce and dim sims. The ingredients were all very fresh and perfectly cooked. It was also the best duck and dims sims we've ever had (in terms of taste, quality and cooking perfection). Thoroughly recommended.

We went for a casual night out with friends and found the Food, to be excellant, and also the serverce was very good as well. Having a Chef that has trained in China, makes all the differance to to the way the food is prepared, save yourself a trip to China, go to Bamboo Garden in Caloundra.
