“Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

we had dinner here and really loved it. I have eaten a lot of Asian food and this was one of the best meals ever. Really recommend the Sizzling Peking Duck. The environment made me feels like I was back in Hong Kong. Would definitely go back.

“Nice lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

Staff (after some lengthy discussion) were able to understand my friends order. Interestingly there was never an offer nor were we asked for our drink orders. Food was average and there is better here.

“Racist”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Two menus - one for Chinese (cheaper) one for others (dearer). Food poor (on cheap menu) - Spicy Pork = streamed pork covered by basic sweet chile sauce. Service just okay. Wine slightly over priced. Will never eat there again or encourage others. Racism is its worst form.

“If you are not Chinese, do not eat here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

We asked why other customers got a different menu and dishes and the waitress told us that was the Chinese only menu! "Spicy pork" was pork with heavy dose of sweet chilli sauce. Not something remotely delicious. Fish and black bean was overcooked frozen basa with flour coating. Service poor. Toilets smelt. Broken tap and door handle. My advice - go elsewhere.
