Terrible service. They were too occupied with the take away. No alcohol service. Nice people. Food satisfactory but overpriced. All in all - keep walking. 👎

We purchased chicken fried rice for $15 to share which was fine, tasted nice. The 12 Wontons were extremely disappointing though as they had no filling and cost $12. I felt pretty ripped off.

This is the sadest place in town. Whilst food is cheap it's not great and takes ages to cook. Mix that in with the fact the place is never open. If it opened more I'd eat here more.

We went here for 'fish and chips' type food but it also has Chinese noodles and other dishes on offer. It's good food at a reasonable price. Unfortunately they didn't give us all our order and we did have to go back but they did...More

Food is similar to what you would get at a shopping centre food court. Not much flavour and very oily. Very limited menu, just the standard western Chinese, nothing interesting. Serving sizes were OK but compared to other Chinese meals we have had in the...More
