“Best Chinese food I've had in Australia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

The sizzling beef just melts in your mouth. Lemon chicken is thinly battered with a non-sticky lemon sauce on top. Sweet and sour pork is cut into perfect bite sized portions and not that hideous bright orange colour you get in most restaurants.

The price was good, the service ok (they had a sign up needing an experienced waiter, they could do with this extra person to be fair) and my table came away very satisfied after having an already great day in Atherton.

“Overpriced, but nice place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We ate here for dinner one night and found it very overpriced. The place itself was very nice, great staff, the food did taste all right but just way overpriced and not much variety in each dish.

“Overpriced rice....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

The environment is clean and decorated somewhat Chinese/Asian style. Service from the staff was prompt as it was not a very busy night and was served with a smile. Ordered water for drinks, however this took awhile to drive. Food was quick and somewhat average-edible/okay. Ordered a bowl of rice to go with my dish and was charged $4 for a small bowl of rice. Overall, it is sort of "Australia-nised" Chinese.

“Chinese Cuisine Lives On”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

When visiting Atherton this is a must visit restaurant. This is Chinese Cuisine at it's best! Michael has created and authentic environment with Chinese lanterns. The food is amazing and as fresh as the day it is prepared. Michael and his staff provides exceptional personal service in an immaculate, clean environment
