“Authentic very good meal”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

Ate here fo dinner on a busy friday, had a nice table staff very efficient and friendly. Main menu seemed a bit daunting for us non chinese (most other diners seemed to be chinese, a good sign?) there was a smaller menu card which seemed to have most of the favourites we are used to and we ordered from this. Food was generous, tasty and we enjoyed it very much. Again staff very quick and efficient. Not the cheapest establishment by any means, but seemed to be a slight cut above others we have eaten in around this Chinatown district so probably worth the extra.

“Great Szechwan Style Chinese”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We decided to try this restaurant after walking up and down Gouger Street checking out all of the Asian restaurants - it had an interesting menu and looked like a popular place. The service was good, the food was served fairly quickly and was spicy and tasty and the serving sizes very generous. Fully licensed and BYO.The stand out dish for me was the deep fried garlic pork ribs - a true taste sensation and I would go back there just to have a huge plate of them. My husband had chilli fish (medium size serve on recommendation of the waiter) and it was huge, it could have served 2-3 people! Served in a large round earthenware bowl, it was fully of hot chilli oil in which there was the fish, bean sprouts, some other veges and lots of chilli, served with steamed rice. The slotted spoon drained off the oil from the food. Really interesting and my husband really enjoyed it. Menu very reasonably priced.

Fantastic food, excellent value and polite and efficient service. The only let down was people smoking at the tables!

“All round good performer!”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 via mobile

We ate here actually on our way to another Asian restaurant along the same gouger street strip. The masses of people inside and outside drew us to at least look at the menu. With all the favourites on the list we knew it would satisfy. We grabbed a table outside (luckily) and watched the Friday night foot traffic walk by while we perused the picture book style menu. There were plenty of appealing options, but we stuck with what we knew or at least we thought we knew. We ordered spring rolls to start, and usually you can bank on the typical style of spring rolls, this time the options were prawn or vegetarian. We chose prawn, and upon the first bite we were shocked at the freshness and flavour packed into such small packages. These were up there amongst the best spring rolls I've tasted more so for their freshness and originality. They got better with every bite. We followed this with Crispy Beef and Sweet and sour pork, and another surprise package, the deep fried beans with pork mince and chilli. We were looking for a bit of freshness with our meal, and these beans sounded great. They tasted awesome, although there was a significant amount of garlic, could have been a tad less and they would have been perfect. Staff here were very attentive and polite! We will be back for sure and may not ever make it back to the other restaurant we were heading to! Pays to try new places, especially when you find gems like this!
