We were a large group 17 in total and took up 2 tables . The service was quick and friendly even though the restaurant was quite full. The food was great and good portion sizes.

Duck Pancakes were mooorish & I could have kept eating 3-4 more but wanted to devour the other ordered items also . Sizzling Black peppered... More

My wife and I dropped in for lunch and went with the lunch specials. We are both not big eaters but walked out hungry. Serves here are around half or less the size of a main serve (actually making them more expensive) which is something we have not experienced before. We have since eaten at Mod Thai in Nelson Bay...

Thanks so much for your feedback. This is the first time anyone has mentioned the lunch specials being too small but will definately take your feedback on board and check that the portions are ok. I know they are usually the same size as other restaurants who offer the $10 specials so thinking it may have been an issue on... More

Cannot fault this restaurant. Lovely waitstaff, good atmosphere, DELICIOUS food, family friendly, lots to choose from and a great wine list. So many Chinese restaurants are salty and greasy. This food is wholesome, flavoursome and tasty! We will definitely be back :)

Really enjoyed our meal here tonight. We had the honey pepper chicken, BBQ pork in plum sauce and special fried rice. We arrived with no booking and were immediately made to feel welcome and seated together at a large round table which could have accommodated 10 diners but was vacant tonight. The service was friendly and fast and the food... More
