Food was very bland and flavouless. Will never go back again. Not good value for money. We tried this restaurant to compare it to our other local chinese takeaway. Does not compare at all. Im not a food expert but this was definitely not good food.

I took my daughter here for our special once a fortnight dinner out together. She found a long hair in her sweet and sour sauce, and then a large black hair under her prawn toast. We sent the mixed entree back and they returned the exact food, just re-fried again. The reason we know this is there was an odd... More

Authentic food and great service, the prices are very good and with minimal fuss. Great view across the lake makes this a charming little eatery

The menu offers a large selection to suit all tastes at reasonable prices and the food is very, very, good! This is a Bring Your Own ( BYO) restaurant,... More

We have been going to this restaurant for many years. The food is delicious and fresh. It is BYO and family friendly. It can be noisy if the restaurant is full. But its great and affordable. Jennie H

great food, good price and a very clean neat and tidy restaurant. You can see the kitchen when you walk in through the back entrance (yes they have one) and it was spotless...that is a very good sign. Never been disappointed here..

Recently discovered this restaurant and been there 5/6 times already. Excellent food, great menu, down to earth atmosphere and friendly owner. My husband's favorite dishes are beef in special sauce and crispy garlic prawns. Being a vegetarian, my favorite is Tofu and vegetables stir fly. I've been vegetarian for over 40 years now and this dish is one of the... More

We dined here with some locals who frequent this restaurant. The food was fresh, delicious & quick to arrive. The menu was extensive, and was some of the best Chinese I've tasted. They have high chairs to accommodate babies and toilets out the back of the restaurant. There is also front and rear parking available, and a takeaway option. it's... More

Whether it's takeaway or dine in, the food is good when it comes! Basic surroundings, nothing flash - except the food. Great flavours, generous serves and fair pricing.
