This business has been a feature of the Melrose Drive shopping strip for many years. It polarises locals - you like it or you don't. The food is fast and fresh albeit bland. It is reminiscent of the 60s when Chinese food was relatively new in Australia. Wanting authentic Chinese - this is not the place. Hungry to experience history... More

Think it's time this couple retired, rude service accompanied by bland food - hate to say this but probably time to hang the wok up.

The owner did not make an effort at all to be welcoming, hard time trying to feel comfortable in the store so we decided to eat out instead.

Love this place, went there twice in the same month - both for take away. Haven't eaten in, the decor is quite old, but the place is spotless - super clean. Had chicken and cashew was awesome and beef & black bean - just as good! A little pricey, but on par with most other Asian take aways.

The food was yum & the portions huge! Only negative, Eftpos is $45 minimum, we ordered a couple more things and she let us off at $43, and the prawn crackers weren't great but they were free! So oh well! All in all, very good Chinese!
