“Quality traditional Chinese tucker”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We had delicious hot and sour soup, crispy skin lemon chicken (exquisite) and beef in black bean sauce ( lovely slices of top quality beef) and tea. There was no charge for corkage and the service was excellent. The restaurant was also producing a high volume of takeaway with the cars double parked outside.

“Good and affordable fare”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

I've dined here a number of times over the years, most recently in early December 2013. I've mostly always had the same basic dish, I'm not sure of the English name but it consists of egg noodles with wanton and char siu. I find the dish to be suitable here as it isn't too oily. The dish set comes with clear chicken soup which tastes particularly nice with pepper.

The decor and environment here is basic, although it appears to have undergone a refresh recently and now looks better. The service is OK but not too exceptional. Prices are very reasonable and similar to most suburban Chinese restaurants (which are really Cantonese Chinese) found in Sydney.

It's the only Chinese restaurant in Coogee and serves basic and decent fare.

“Old established restaurant.”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

There is nothing fancy here but the food is really good Chinese. The restaurant décor is quite basic but the service is fine and the prices are very reasonable.
