Just had a very poor lunch here. My husband had pork that was almost entirely fat with beans that were so hard they were inedible. My vegetarian rice had sauce that was far too salty. Altogether not a place to revisit.

We ordered two served dumping in soup and fried for lunch. They were big portions and we were unable to finish it. The quality of dumpling was very good and it still tasty when we ate in the evening.

A great restaurant in China Town for dumplings, which is inexpensive. No alcohol served here and it is cash only. We normally have the hot & sour soup with dumplings, which costs A$9.80 for beautiful soup & ten dumplings. This a meal in itself, so...More
