An excellent evening and some of the best food I have eaten. Fine dining at an affordable price. Will go again.

The food is not about quantity but about quality. The staff are friendly. Would highly recommend it to anyone and is better than some places in Melbourne.

This was recommended by The Schaller Studio and we wanted to have a dining experience in keeping with Bendigo;s Chinese heritage. 4 courses shared between two couples - included prawns with vegetables, gado gado salad, then a duck and a beef dish - all equally delicious. Ample rice was topped up as was the chinese tea. Most attentive staff and... More

I had the spring rolls and king doh chicken. Tasted venison for the very first time. Absolutely scrumptious. Great size meals. Next time I wont try the entrée so I have room for the dessert. I had to miss out this time around. Never again. What a great meal. Also loved seeing all the awards on the wall. Can't wait... More

This was our first tine and the venue lovely and excellent friendly service. However the food was very disappointing.

Other dish was chicken curry which was again disappointing in flavour. Taste was oily and flat with... More

We've had take away from this place before, so decided to have a sit down meal this time & it didn't disappoint. We started with Vegetable rolls (shared) then had the Mongolian Beef with the special rice. The food was really tasty & staff were pleasant & attentive without being in your face Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Had a beautiful meal with my family. Meals were so big and full of flavour. Staff were pleasant, helpful, polite and attentive. Havent been for a long while but will be going back. Really enjoyed my own meal but definitely had food envy for every other meal on the table. Bit on the more expensive side but you definitely get... More

As the title reads, food is fantastic and also young man attending to us was fantastic but being under 18 couldn't get our drinks......so many times the owner and other staff walked past us without either taking our empty glasses or asking for more!!!! I asked for more water which never arrived....we would've had at least another round of drinks... More

Food was fresh and very tasty, service excellent. Although more costly than an average Chinese Restaurant in the area, presentation and choice was above average. Very happy and will return.
