Not the best Chinese food. All food tastes the same. From fried rice stir fries wontons and fried fish - all tastes the same. Food is also greasy. Price is ok. Woman by the counter is not friendly and helpful.

My partner and I along with my parents had a fabulous dinner here on New Year's Eve. Service was brilliant and the food so fresh and tasty. We will definitely return again. I loved the entree spring rolls especially.

We called in for a quick dinner. The place was full but we got a seat promptly. Yes the decor may be pretty tired, but the service and food quality more than makes up for it. Excellent value for money. It is quite the institution in Invercragill and we will defintely be going back.

We got takeaways from here after a LONG day in Milford Sound and were not impressed. It was over priced and the food was mediocre at best!

Had a birthday meal out with 8 of us including fussy kids 11 and 13. We had a banquet with chicken and corn soup for a starter and then entrees and 8 mains to share and sundaes to finish.
