Spent evening there with friend. We ordered beef with ginger and onion and sweet chicken. Rice and vegetable. Beef was really good and chicken ok. Vegetables nothing special, some of them way to big. Customer service not bad. Prices a little bit high for Chinese food but anyway was restaurant. I might be back.

We had eaten at this restaurant twice before, but last night decided to do the banquet. The food was delicious and well timed, no long delays or pressure between courses. Lots of different dishes to sample. It is quite expensive, however when using the 'entertainment book' the price was worth it. The service was quite good, but it was a... More

This is a very elegant looking place - Geelong's "Flower Drum". The food is also very good, especially the Peking Duck.

Still Geelong's best Chinese restaurant after a few decades. Haven't been back for a while, but was great to see the food was as good as ever. Love it!

was initially looking forward to visiting this place after seeing some positive reviews but the visit today turned out to be very disappointing. there was only 1 table of patrons when we arrived. was ushered to a table by non-Asian waitress whom does not give us the experience of an authentic Asian/Chinese restaurant. we were expecting the noise, buzz, smell,...

Dear Michelle C. I am disappointed at your review. I feel that your comments are vindictive. We have a very strong following of Geelong's Chinese community. The Yum Char trolly was not "luke warm" but was steaming hot. If your dumplings were not steaming hot, I am not sure why you would not have raised the problem with one of... More

As a visitor to Geelong, I had no expectations of the standard of Chinese cuisine in this friendly city. The visit to Man Bo was a pleasant one. The venue was spacious and decked out with dynastic ceiling designs that are rare even in Mainland China restaurants. Staff were smiling and friendly. My local friend did all the ordering and...

The food was very good cannot fault it. The waiter we had was very professional. We went for a meal with no time frame in mind, but the food did come out in a timely manner. All up a great night with great food.

We had been before so expected a great night. I don't know what has happened but the service was the worst any of us have seen. No apologies were ever offered so this must now be standard. The food was good when it came, but if you have to wait for 2 hours before you get any food it may... More

Hi Robyn, thanks for your feedback. In particular thank you for your good review of our food. I have spoken individually with you, your daughter Lynda, and another of your daughters in 3 separate conversations since the night. I apologise sincerely for the less than adequate service you received on the night. Unfortunately, your group of thirteen decided to order... More
