“Best Chinese Restaurant in Bathurst!!M”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

This is by far the best Chinese restaurant in Bathurst!! I visit Bathurst regularly and I've tried most of the Chinese restaurants around, and Chef Li definately tops the list! Everything is always cooked hot and fresh and sooo yummy! Last time i visited, I ordered the salt and pepper prawns (prawns was nice and fresh which you don't always get inland), sweet and sour pork (freshly fried so the pork was delicioulsy hot and crunchy, unlike some restaurants where they pre fry the pork) and combination stir fry with oyster sauce (very tasty). The service was very friendly as always. This restaurant is quite popular which is why they are busy and I can understand why. I don't mind the wait because the quality of the food and the good prices makes it worthwhile! I recommend this restaurant to all my friends that visit Bathurst. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed!!

“It isn't what it used to be...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

I have been going to Chef Li for years and years. I used to rave about the food. Since Chef Li sold the restaurant, the food quality has declined considerably :( It is disappointing because their food used to be so full of flavour. It is not bad chinese by any means, but it isn't what it used to be.

“Slow and Expensive”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

We arrived at 7:15pm and had our order taken and drinks arrived by 7:30. Entree arrived at 8:15 well half the entrees the other half arrived at 8:30pm. Rice for the mains arrived at 8:45 then one main arrived at 9pm we left at 9:15pm paid $60. Good food that we had but 2 hours is ridiculous. We then went up the road to the China inn had our food on the table in 10 minutes.

“King prawns from the Prawn King”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Visited this restaurant to check it out personally after reading the reviews. It does not disappoint. The prawns are definitely super fresh. I had king prawn noodles. Was delighted to get such good prawns inland. I have also taken a photo of the place since the original photo is definitely not Chef Li's. In the evenings, parking is easy along the street. Prices are slightly higher than the average chinese restaurant but it does not disappoint.
