Trying to win worst meal in Australia in 3 weeks. We ordered pork dumplings and Spring Rolls. The dumplings were tough and cold. The Spring Roll a little warmer but very mushy inside. Would not return and can’t recommend.

Great value for money, some of the best Chinese food we've eaten. Generous servings, and quick service.

Our family of 4 enjoyed the food. Kung pao chicken and pepper beef were delicious. The duck pancakes looked great, but didn't get to try them, as our 6 yo gobbled them down, so that's a good recommendation. Steamed dumplings were good, but probably not the highlight. Like the fact the mains come out with a free small steamed rice... More

Family of 4 including 3yr and 6yr old children went here for dinner. Considering it was a Monday this place was packed (albeit a very small restaurant). We ordered kung pao chicken stirfry, 12 assorted steamed dumplings, peppered beef stirfry and duck pancakes. All dishes had fantastic flavours and decent size. Kids loved everything. Really well priced. Book ahead to... More

Reasonable quality dumplings. Made quickly. Not too expensive. Taste is fairly good. Definitely worth a try if you need something quick and quality in the city. Not fancy or anything, but good quality. Except there was the creepiest music loop when we were there. Ask them to turn it off/down.

We enjoyed a variety of dumplings. They were delicious! Be prepared for a wait at lunch and there was no chance of a table! We had an enjoyable outside lunch at nearby Collins Court.

OK, so it was lunchtime, but that's still no excuse for being made to queue twice! The first time I lined up to order some takeaway - I thought something quick from the bain-marie - only to pay for my takeaway and then have to wait "my turn" for the food (which was gluey and tasteless) to be doled into...

For a place that looks a bit dull from the outside the food was surprisingly good. The laksa was definitely the highlight, spicy with lots of flavour in the broth. We enjoyed it so much we decided to take away our dinner from there as well!
