Chinese cuisine. Nice to be offered chopsticks. Served fast and hot and was tasty to the end. Drinks available. Good prices. Only disappointment was the view out the window of a neglected garden and fence. Perhaps this could be made into something nice to view.

I was staying at the attached Lamplighter Motel and had two quite pleasant dinners in the Balloons Restaurant. I was served promptly and politely. The restaurant also seemed popular with a number of Chinese parties as well.
