If this wasn't the worst service I've ever had, it was a close second. The night was saved by great food. If you like Chinese, this is great, good location, nice restaurant and terrific food...just be patient.

We ordered salmon and it's good. The unfortunate thing is that they provide terrible customer service. Cairns is supposed to be a beautiful and multicutural city. Any person regardless of race should be treated equally. We were Asian not Chinese and seated next to Caucasian...More

Disappointed. One should not leave the restaurant feeling hungry after ordering the 'banquet'. Had to request one of the meals after they seemed to forget all about it. Stingie.
