We've heard some mixed reviews but thought we would give it a go. Very surprised and really happy for a Sunday night take-away.

The family that ran this business (where the older man did the cooking) have recently sold, it seems. I have dropped in for a few meals since and its no longer as good as I had previously experienced. The meals contained MSG and the flavours were bland. How can a bbq pork dish and mongolian lamb dish taste the same?... More

Nothing much to write about in this fast food, eat-in and takeaway Chinese restaurant. Laminex tables and tiled floor with an oversized TV on the wall says, it's as much about meeting people for a quick meal versus anything gourmet. Typical local Chinese food cooked quickly and served piping hot and plenty of it, but just missing the 'tasty' mark.... More

I’ve visited again recently. The restaurant is under new management. I had the combination chow mein with crispy noodles and the combination short and long soup. The dishes were overall quite OK but they did seem to use more oil than previously and perhaps a request could be put through to reduce the amount used. The dishes also didn’t seem... More

This used to be a local favourite - good Australian style Chinese food - not for the purists but reliably tasty, cheap and always friendly. Under new owners the quality of the food has deteriorated significantly, the local atmosphere has been destroyed by a karoke machine that is completely out of place, all the friendly staff have been replaced, and...

We dropped in late on a Friday night and found a little gem in the midst of the Coogee restaurant scene. Good food, reasonable prices and served quickly was what we required, and this place fitted the bill.

Great place to drop in after a day on the beach and grab a tasty, reasonably priced Chinese. Food is served really fast so perfect if you have hungry kids!

Having been served a dish with pieces of frozen meat scattered throughout an otherwise piping hot meal and being declined any form of refund/discount by the ranting owner, I can vouch for this being one of the worst Chinese dining experiences imaginable. Don't!!!!

We normally have home delivery from this restaurant. It's our favourite Chinese and has been for many years. The large spring rolls are a must. Eating in is a little basic but the food makes up for it.
