We arrived lay at night, the place was packed. The wait staff were very friendly, found us a table. I was a little apprehensive seeing the exhaustive menu which had over a hundred dishes, however the food arrived and it was excellent. Huge portion, which after a long drive was well received. This place looks popular with locals, I understand... More

It is certainly not gourmet food but for a small town of New Norfolk it was a pretty good meal. Run by a Chinese couple who spend there time in the kitchen with front of house staff being local Australians. It seems the locals prefer knife and fork but chopsticks are available on asking. It is a big menu to... More

There is nothing special about it but you do get a tasty standard offering. Popular with the locals and the wait time can be up to an hour when busy. For a small town it is acceptable.

The menu seems to be different kinds of bases with the same rotation of sauces. I guess this means there is something for everyone. They also have very western things like fish and chips on the menu - surely though one would expect Chinese food at a Chinese restaurant. My father had the flounder; it is the probably the most...

Restaurant has no atmosphere, staff is friendly but knows nothing about the food. The kitchen is fast, but uses wired ingredients. Not even chicken sweet and sour or steamed rice is eatable.

Had one of the combos - two medium pizzas and a garlic pizza and soft drink. Excellent taste and enough for two full meals for two. Highly recommended!

The staff were lovely even though we didn't have a booking. Ordered our food and drinks. Fried rice had no prawns and was average. The combination chow mien was tasty. The battered chicken in plum sauce was delicious and the honey chicken was strange, they used a strong tasty honey instead of a sweet honey. The fried won tons were... More
