The food is delicious, it's a bit on the expensive side,but I've been to quite a few Chinese restaurants in Geelong and this for me was the best one.

Been here many times before. Decided to do a thank you dinner for 2 other couples. Chose Man Bo for ambience, class and the 'better' chinese experience. Firstly, the booking was 'lost' , but they seated the first 4 of us anyway. When the final couple turned up, they were actually seated at the table we were to have, so... More

We had a family celebration here with 5 of us. We chose the Tasting Menu B at $68 a person with 9 courses. Very prices and probably too many courses to enjoy as we were very full by the end and just wanted to get it over with. 7 courses would have been enough at a lower price per person... More

I really wish to put some context around your complaint of the service on the night of 29 July. As you are well aware, we were extremely busy on that night, with the AFL football game starting at 7:50pm. I... More

Man Bo is an institution in Geelong. Friendly staff that know the menu well and are on hand to assist . great selection of somewhat Australianised Chines, but dig a little and you'll find some great genuine Asian dishes. (or just ask the staff). possibly the best hot & sour Soup I have eaten

From the moment my partner and I walked in the door and saw the spectacular oriental decor we knew we would not be disappointed. The staff were very welcoming, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious. The barramundi with 3 flavour sauce is a 'must have'. The menu is quite extensive, with a wine list to match. We... More

Family yum cha lunch lunch last weekend. Quick service. Food hot and fresh but very little variety and to be honest theres only so much deep fried food or steamed dumplings you can have before it all starts tasting the same. Wont be rushing back anytime soon.....😕
