Ordered steamed dim sims, prawn toast, san choy bow, seafood combination, fish in lemon sauce, satay chicken and fried rice. Everything except for the satay chicken was extremely bland. The fried rice was, to put nicely, very un-Asian like and to top that off they charged more than a reputable Chinese restaurant in Sydney. We strongly recommend not trying this... More

Although the service was friendly and we received our take away orders in record time. We were so disappointed with the food. Ordering the pork in plum sauce, short soup and fried rice- none of which we finished . Prices were reasonable for Nelson Bay which is overpriced when it comes to food - regardless of quality! We usually go... More

The restaurant has a new decor from our last trip but the quality service and food remain the same. Well worth adding to your dinner or lunch agenda or just take away if you prefer.

As a family of 4 we dined here this week and it was excellent. From the minute we walked in the door the hospitality was very warm and friendly. The food was great and service very quick. Would definitely do back again next time we are in town

Went here on Saturday Night while on Holidays as a group of 3. We didn't have a booking but managed to get a table after about 5 minutes. Just a suggestion though as it is very busy on the weekends I think you should book to make sure you get a table. Although the place was packed we got our... More

Decided to try this place for a quick early dinner (5pm) we both had combination chow mien, one of our favourite dishes as it has a variety of vegetables, prawns, pork, beef and chicken, a complete meal in one. It did not disapoint and was very reasonably priced.

Got take away whilst on holidays. This was the most tasteless Chinese I have ever had. I ordered combo chow mein. I got chicken and a little bit of beef. No prawns. No pork. Others had combo short soup. Terrible. The special fried rice tasted like it was 2 weeks old. Stale.

This Chinese restaurant has excellent food, a great atmosphere and fantastic service. A bit of a local secret and tucked away in a quiet mall, it's well worth looking for.

Dropped in late after travelling up from Sydney for a take away meal. Staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. The food was prepared quickly most likely because we were the only ones there however they assure me they are busy on weekends :-). Recommended if you're after something quick and easy.

Thank Paul R
