We'd heard from our neighbours that this little local Chinese was not to be overlooked, so wandered down over Easter for a casual dinner. Seats about 20-30 and at least half full on a Thur night with what seemed to be either regulars, locals, or both. Everyone know the owner by name and all had a chat about their lives... More

Best Food, Fastest Service and Friendliest Chinese restaurant around. Gibby will remember your name and order just by the sound of your voice! Great place.

We ordered over the phone and the food was ready at the agreed time which was great as its always awkward waiting in... More

Always go here for Chinese, Food is always first class, Love the Hong Kong Fried rice and the red vinegar crispy steak. People are fantastic, if you get take away, while you wait they will always offer a drink or a lolly. If you want to sit in your car and wait, no problems they will bring out to you... More

We lived in the area for a few years mistakenly bypassing this unassuming restaurant in a group of 4 shops. OUR LOSS until recently. The decor is eclectic but cosy, Gibby who runs the restaurant with her husband Eric, does an amazing job keeping the locals happy with great food and service. The prices are reasonable and BYO makes it... More
