My 2 friends and I had dinner here during our holiday in Cairns. We did not have a reservation, but we were welcomed warmly when we walked in at around 8pm. We ordered the sauteed scallops with brocolli, the spicy seafood hot pot and the cabbage and sliced beef stir-fry, accompanied by steam rice. Our meal was served promptly, the... More

My friend felt uncomfortable so we decided to have porridge here. Food was really good and tasted chinese style. But when we called for water, we asked more than 3 times to get it. Nearly no good services quality. Won't visit again.

In the company of friends we decided to introduce them to this Chinese restaurant. They were suitably impressed, with the flavours of the food, the quality, and the size of the meal. We opted for the Buffet for $35 per person which is excellent value, and offers a varied list from which to choose. Great to see Chinese people working... More

We ordered a pork soup for take away and only waited 10 minutes, super quick! We were walking back to our hotel and it was still fresh by the time we got back. Super tasty and I would definitely eat here again

Delicious authentic Chinese food with very helpful staff, the waiter recommended ordering from the Chinese menu for delicious spicy pork dishes, which we did. Had a wonderful dining experience with affordable prices.

We were there last Tuesday and thought we would try their Yum Cha for lunch, it's not true Yum Cha, you order and they cook it, my Dim Sims were raw in the middle and tasted awful, the fried rice had NO taste, terrible experience.

Like some reviewers here we did not check the prices before sitting down but taking into account the decor and location decided to proceed and order. My wife selected scallop with vegetables ($37) and I chose the sizzling fillet steak chinese style ($36) with steamed rice ($9) accompanied by an unknown bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc which took the bill...
