Have always seen this shop and wondered what it would be like. Well i have now eaten there and I have to say that the food was PERFECT!!! Yeah so the decor is a little outdated, but do not let that deter you from eating here. I have to admit we have take away. There was a special going on at the time also, if you spent so much you got a dish free...so we took advantage of that deal :)

We ordered a lot of food, and serious it was all fantastic. Normally when i eat Chinese, i can usually find fault with something, especially if i am eating at a place for the first time, but not here. When i go back up at Christmas, I will be taking the family...and see if my review is the same :)

I went to this restaurant on 21st July 2014 after reading positive reviews on this site. I found this restaurant to be fantastic in terms of atmosphere, cuisine and value. The atmosphere is reflective of all good Chinese restaurant without over the top decorations. I noticed they also sold artworks of L. Kerr, a somewhat local painter featuring scenic views with the Kookaburra as almost a signature It was also friendly of my daughter featuring a high chair with a child friendly environment. The cuisine was excellent; We ordered garlic prawns which were succulent and tender, sizzling Mongolian lamb which matched the hot plate spectacle with strong yet succulent flavors, and honey chicken which had tender chicken in crispy batter under a honey coating with sesame seeds on top. We also tried their mixed entree which was really enjoyable. The leftovers were taken home for later tonight. We bought a bottle of red as the restaurant is BYO, yet they have a licensed premises. For this wonderful meal, it set me back approximately $48. Will definitely go there again and refer to friends and family. Congratulations to the staff and owner.

Clean, contemporary restaurant and prompt friendly service. The Mongolian Lamb, Garlic Prawns and Honey Chicken is outstanding. Hot, fresh and delicious. The BEST Chinese we have had anywhere in a long time.
