“Mr Tan is the Man!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

This restaurant is a simple setting but with spectacular food. We take family, friends, work colleagues and anyone who will listen. If you can't choose from the menu, the maitre D, Mr Tan will have his magic chefs make something for you. His sexy squid is to die for....oh and the sexy chicken too....but never...walk in expecting a table...always book!

“Cheap, authentic and tasty”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Fantastic value, tasty food in lively restaurant. Fast service after ordering as the woks stirfry continuously. The walls are decorated with sheet of paper that have individual recommendations and praise from celebrities and politicians.

“Surprisingly excellent vegetarian menu, open on Easter”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

My husband and I were in Canberra over Easter weekend. Almost everything was closed due to the holidays, but thank goodness this place was open. It has a whole vegetarian menu, which was a surprise. We both had the spicy tofu soup, which was delicious. For mains, my husband had a calamari dish, and I had the Yummy Vegetarian "Chicken" and Tofu dish. I can't speak for the calamari, but my dish was seriously good. It's bring your own booze, and there was a grocery store next door that was (also surprisingly) open, and the whole meal was fantastic. Can't say enough good things about this place.

“"Cheap and cheerful" expertly delivered”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is an almost perfect rendition of the "cheap and cheerful" model: the decor is basic, the place is crowded and noisy, and the food is delicious. We did not bother ordering, but instead went for the "just feed us" approach, which worked very well. All the dishes were tasty and well prepared. We ate all that we could eat and just ended up paying $33 a head, including corkage. Result.

“Hospitality Plus”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

This was my second only visit to this restaurant and I'm definitely going back for more. The food is great tasting and the prices very reasonable. No worries if you can't decide what to order - they're happy to help! Highly recommend.
