We've had food delivered on a couple of occasions and each time it has been hot & delicious. The $60 special is a good way to go with a selected entree (6 spring rolls or dim sims or combination of the two) 3 dishes and...fried rice included. There is also a discount for first time online orders. Would definitely order again.More
I have only just moved to the area and was recommended to try this restaurant. I have given it more than one go as I thought the first visit may have just been an off night. How wrong, the food is very average, not like...Chinese at all. Ordered fillet steak Chinese style and got sliced round steak in what looked like gravox with a little bit of spice. Prawn cutlets at $4 each that were slimey and sour to smell and taste. Never again, its 200 metres from where I am and even the woman where I stay drives 15 klm to Glendale for a better meal.More
This has been, for 35 years, the only restaurant in my home suburb. My wife and I, our friends and extended family have averaged 10-12 visits per year, about half as eat-in and half as takeaway opportunities.
The decor has always been clean, tidy and...simple ... southern Chinese nick-nacks and 'art' in a cool double-brick interior. The owners have effective air-conditioning.
There is a liquor store next door for those who need wine or beer but the Ocean Melody has an ample supply of soft-drinks and cold glassware from which to drink.
Meals are medium-high prices but portion sizes are great. Typically, a couple would spend $85-$90 for two entrees, two mains and a couple of soft-drinks.
My wife regularly takes home half or more of her main meal while I pass on entrees these days ... such is the volume of what is served.
n.b. If you eat in on a Friday or Saturday evening, you will compete with the front door constantly opening and closing as, seemingly, half of Blackalls Park and Toronto call by to collect takeaways. On these evenings, in particular, the phone rings constantly with outside orders.
Open for lunch noon-3pm and dinner 5:30pm-9:30pm Tuesday to Sunday. Closed Mondays (except gazetted public holidays)More
The last visit was not so great. Inattentive and bordering on rude staff, VERY average food, and we felt like an inconvenience to the staff while they looked after a large group of obviously personally known guests.
I went there with a group of 30 people, 3 years ago, and the food was fantastic, then I went back 2 years ago, the food was not so good, the third time I went back, The staff skimped on the food so much we...only had, 1 spring roll, 1 dimsim, and 1 prawn toast each; the main meal was one table spoon of each dish because there was not enough for everyone.More
It's not really saying much but this is the best Chinese in town. Not bad, but not particularly good. I've had takeaway form here often, but I've never dined in - it has a rather depressing atmos. Still, if you are in the mood for...Chinese and you are in the area this is the place to go.More
