The food selection here is huge with Chinese, Cambodian and some Vietnamese. While it may not set the world on fire in terms of Asian delicacies the food is nevertheless quite good and typically suburban Asian fare. What is outstanding is the prices which are remarkably cheap for what you get (taste and quantity) with a typical main course under... More

Service is always good, staff repeat the order back to you to check the order is correct. Food comes quickly. Restaurant is always busy. Wise to book but if you are not a large group you may get a seat without a reservation.

Only had a Seafood Laksa, vast bowl of really overcooked vermicelli in canned coconut milk with a spoonful of commercial paste, usual topping. Just left it, paid and left. Really would not come back, better Asian options in the Gong.

Don't bother. If you do, make sure the waiter writes it all down because by the time they do, they have forgotten what you ordered. We received our mixed entree (dry), I always like calamari, but nothing on their competition elsewhere in Wollongong. Then I got my main, rice cold and the wait for my friends meal. Then we were...

The food was absolutely disgusting, tasteless, and the quality of ingredients was extremely poor. Do not eat here, anywhere would be better. Definitely not a 4 star restaurant, 1/2 star at best.

Had usual Chinese fare and could not fault it, very nice and tasty. Good service, just a basic restaurant, but good menu with plenty of choice.

The Singapore noodles were fresh and delicious, just perfect with a cold, crisp glass of sauvignon blanc. Very reasonably priced and the staff were extremely efficient. Meal was served very quickly after ordering. Will definitely be back next time in Wollongong.

Thank you for having such amazing food and wonderful prices! Entree, four mains (one veggie dish) and rice came to $47!!! The small negatives.... the lady asked if we would like the dim sims first... we said yes. Not three minutes later the veggies came out... so we shrugged our shoulders and picked at them... the dim sims came out... More

People go here cause the food is cheap but it does not taste good. Worst Pad Thai of my life. Food doesn't taste fresh.

A tasty, cheap Chinese feed. Fast service. The only downside was some dirty cutlery and glasses. Good place for the family. BYO wine, so you can neck a few bottles while you have you dinner. Will go here again.
