We just ate there as a party of 9 for Chinese New Year and found the service so poor we will definitely not return. Four of our party were children aged between 2-10.

We've been a few times and have always been greated by friendly staff and good food. We definitely like the prawns in 5 spice. They are licensed and allow BYO which in my mind is the best.

Great option in new farm, ordered take away and it was ready within 15mins. For two people the portion sizes are great and the food was fresh and delicious! Highly recommend the sweet and sour, tons and chicken and was thoughtful to leave the sauce separately. Would go back!

One of our local places to eat, food is consistently good and caters for all requests. Vegetarian fried rice one of the best I have had. Service is excellent, very relaxed place, BYO but has a good wine list as well. Have also had takeaways and food is hot and fresh on arrival.

I eat here often, the service is polite, friendly and professional. Good vibe about the place . Ginger Fish with shallots is my favorite, I use this restaurant as my yard stick whenever I order this dish anywhere else .
