Wouldn't use anybody else for take-away chinese food. Meals always arrived on time and still hot even though we stay a little out of town. Great tasting dish's and never really had a bad meal

Took my family here during the school holidays. We went on a Sunday night and it was an all you can eat buffet night. There was a great selection, plenty of options for us to choose from, and was a fantastic and friendly service
