“The place has lost its sparkle”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This used to be a really good local restaurant and we would bring visitors here often. However the last few times we have been it just gets worse and worse. The menu is really extensive but most dishes are typical aussie/chinese and lack flavour. Staff are friendly and helpful but for the price there are better chinese restaurants in Melton.
If you have a big group try the banquets as they are generally good value. Place is definitely kid friendly and there are special dishes provided.
Totally agree with the onion comment - if you dont like onion - you will be trouble.
Location is good, parking is good but its really resting on its laurels and needs some work.

“Best Chinese in Town”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Yes It has gone down in Years but still the best.
Let me see good parking, Great reception desk, and A Large Restaurant full of nice tables.
Its a nice and quiet dinner. The Staff are so ever friendly.
Even though the food isnt cooked fresh, its very quick service. And what a range of food and drinks to choose from.
I asked for a bowl of water cres and corn once, and they were more then happy to do it for me.
They even have a room at the back for big groups.
My family have been here for 18 years, about once every 4 months.
Also toilets are easily to Locate.

“Poor quality”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Friends came to visit bringing food for all from Delicious. We had eaten there many times in years gone by, but the quality has definitely gone down hill. Every dish was jam packed full of onion - which is not only cheap for them, but upsets my stomach. Take away the onion, and there was barely anything left in the containers. Very disappoining and low value for money.
