Food is average, small portion. The Asian lady boss always give you a bitter look. Unwelcoming. We ordered fried rice , noodle and ribs.

The staff were very courteous and the menu for authentic Chinese tea was extensive. It was approx. $4.50 for tea for one but also serve a range of other drinks including alcohol. Light meals were also available. You sit overlooking the Chinese gardens and pond. There is also a resident lizard which frequents the area. Great place to visit.

Located at the back of a small shopping centre this Chinese restaurant is one of those hole in the wall places that has delicious food at a reasonable price. The service was as good as the food.

This Chinese was amazing but they have just lost their chef, most of their menu, most of the furniture and a lot of charm. The menu is now just standard take-away items you could get anywhere.

The shop front is old and run down, so is the inside, but the food is delicious, which is most important! I will be ordering from here again.

The best Chinese in Townsville , possibly North Queensland. The atmosphere in the restaurant is pretty basic, but the food is worth it! Prices are good - although getting hold of a decent and up to date menu online is difficult.

Not always spectacular but the best Chinese food I've had in Townsville. Chef's specials are generally pretty good, and the value packs are pretty good too.
