This restaurant always has a queue even when you have booked. They have 3 seatings for the night and always very crowded. The food is heavenly but the crowd and wait can be daunting as you are dependent on the seating before you to finish on time. This restaurant has been in existence for decades and still surviving because of... More

Small and old little Chinese restaurant offers one of the best Chinese cuisines around the area. Not only they offer quality dishes from brunch to dinner (i.e congee to main courses at night), they also offer some creation dishes such as Creamy French Crab which has made quite a reputation of themselves. The Western creamy white sauce goes very well... More

I have lived in the area for 27 years and have seen around 5 restaurants at the same location that did not last long. Why can this one keep going strong? To begin with, they don't compromise on quality. You can see the effort that went into ingredients (for example you don't see vegetables that are seconds on the table)... More

Their Crab with French is famous and is really good. Other Chinese dishes are good too. Only problem is parking and the relative crowded dinning room.

After dined at Hurtsville, I was shocked by the price tag of those Seafood Restaurant like 177.9 a kilo for Lobster and 140.00 a kilo for stone crab. At Carlingford, I was surprised by the big difference in price in Australia. My friend order a huge stone crab of 3.5 kilo. Honestly, first time I tried such a big guy.... More

Having read some of the great reviews, I went there for dinner on Wednesday evening expecting to be tantalised. How disappointing. Overall, the food was just mediocre and in fact some of the dishes were not even of restaurant quality. The stand out dish was the fried quail. Although a challenge to eat involving both hands, the birds were well... More

You would be willing to go to a place without much ambience if the food was extraordinary. Unfortunately this place cannot claim this right. The restaurant was semi busy and service is generally good. The food was quick and the workers seem to know what they're doing. However the place lacks ambience and looks and feels extremely tired. However, as... More

This is one of my favourite childhood restaurants. Even though the location is next to a busy roadway with loud trucks rushing down the streets and the place is somewhat small. Going inside it's often a quaint and calming place to relax. The food they provide is excellent, nothing is overly or under saturated, they are able to provide a... More

Need to book as the place gets packed, especially on Saturday nights. The staff were helpful and the service was great. The food was the best Chinese food I had in a long time. I will go back for sure.
