It is understandable why this restaurant is still around - been in St Leonards for at least 23 years now. The food is consistently good and very reasonably priced. The services is friendly and efficient. For one of the most authentic Chinese meals head here!

Been many years since the last visit and have chased this restaurant around Crows Nest, Kirribilli and in its current home in St Leonards. Thanks to the Entertainment Book, there was a powerful incentive to try it again, though we have no idea why it dropped off our radar. Not wanting to miss out on anything, the two of us... More

Silver service, spectacular food. Been coming here for years and, critically, the food is consistently great, bordering on fantastic. The owners, Mark and Penny, put their heart and soul into everything.

Terrific food. A little pricey but quality is always consistant so worth paying for when you know what you get. I love the duck pancakes and schezuan chicken

The best Szechuan food in the area, the restaurant is big and tucked away in St Leonards. The food is always fresh, portions a good size and good wine selection. Food presentation is good, the staff friendly and attentive. Good family, meeting or couples restaurant.

Nice place for Szechuan food but the choices are pretty limited. The waiters are friendly and attentive. Major downside being the exorbitant price for the food that you could easily get elsewhere at a much lower price.

Food is absolutely delicious. We had the pork belly and the eggplant and could not tell you which was better as they were both so so good. The restaurant itself was lacking in character but perhaps it is busier on weeknights.
