As a visitor to Geelong, I had no expectations of the standard of Chinese cuisine in this friendly city. The visit to Man Bo was a pleasant one. The venue was spacious and decked out with dynastic ceiling designs that are rare even in Mainland China restaurants. Staff were smiling and friendly. My local friend did all the ordering and...

The food was very good cannot fault it. The waiter we had was very professional. We went for a meal with no time frame in mind, but the food did come out in a timely manner. All up a great night with great food.

We had been before so expected a great night. I don't know what has happened but the service was the worst any of us have seen. No apologies were ever offered so this must now be standard. The food was good when it came, but if you have to wait for 2 hours before you get any food it may... More

My family are locals and we have been coming to this restaurant for years and years. Absolutely appalled with the service. Last night we had to wait an hour before ordering drinks, they did not clear the plates from the table and they mucked up all of the orders with no apologies at all. My poor grandfather had to wait... More

Heard great things about Man Bo so decided to give it a try. It was a special occasion for my husband and I so did not mind paying the prices if the food was as good as I had heard. We ordered the $60 banquet. Long wait for the first couple of courses to arrive, then the next 4 came... More
