Stayed in Bathurst for one night and decided to have takeaway dinner from Chef Li's. Ordered king prawns in oyster sauce, dumplings and Singapore noodles. The king prawns and dumplings are excellent and valued for the price charged, with generous portions. The Singapore noodles were average quality. While waiting for the takeaway to be prepared we were offered water and a table to sit down. The decor of the restaurant is classy and beautiful, a surprise considering the prices charged are not that of an expensive establishment. The service was good and we would definitely come back again to Chef Li's when we're in Bathurst.

After being recommended by relatives to try, we were not disappointed. We have had dine in and takeaway on numerous occasions, the quality and flavour of the chinese meals is consistent and are a generous size as well. Make sure you are hungary... love the salt n pepper king prawns.

The food here is absolutely delicious, the staff are friendly and courteous and the portions are huge! Every time I eat here I have to get a container for the food since I can't finish it all and don't want to leave it since it's so good. The atmosphere is comfortable and Chef Li always a nice place to have a meal and a chat with a friend.

Our most favourite restaurant at home. We get a take-away on a regular basis and the standard is always first class. Decor is quite smart as well. The spring rolls and dumplings are light and freshly prepared and our favourite mains are the king prawns. The only down side is that it does get quite busy, so phone well in advance!

The first thing you'll notice about this place is the pleasant decor. They have gone to some effort to make it a classy joint. Now, can they cook?? Yes! I have tried EVERY chinese restaurant in Bathurst and Chef Li's food is on another level. Very tasty without the heavy glugginess of other places. His combination short soup rocks my world...delicious! His dumplings are a nice alternative to dim sims and the Ham and Chicken rolls are a favourite. He uses fresh prawns not frozen. I guess you have to pick your dishes here. For a place that can make such nice food their special fried rice is terrible!..very bland and tasteless. I buy it elsewhere if I want it. But, overall, still an excellent dining experience...just pick the right dishes. Fri and Sat nites are extremely busy...order early if you don't want to wait 1hr or more for takeaway.
