“Big portions and tasty”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

This place has been around for a while and is located in a place that seems to cater more for the lunch time and takeaway crowd.

The food was served quickly and the portions were large. Overall the food was tasty and definitely a place I would go back to.

“well worth a try”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Good service & very good food (especially the prawn & scallop dish) at a reasonable price.

Probably more a lunchtime spot given the location, but would be happy to take family there for dinner.

“Oh could be so much better”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Overall the food is of good quality.
Its not your average Chinese. Upstairs, white tablecloths, even had a piano player which was a tad too loud when we were there. The problem is that the amount of MSG that is being used is very high. This additive reacts with me for a day or so. If thy could simply cut this back (or out) they might do ok. I actually forgot about the MSG on the first visit 12 months ago, but reacting the next day, recalled the first time too.
If you don't mind MSG, then its good. if you dont, you might chose something else.
