Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food attentive service and good happy crowd. Very well done food prepared quickly. We had sweet & sour pork with house fried rice. There was nothing left. The pork was perfect and the rice with a good balance of flavor. Large group nearby was...obviously happy with their food.More

Had the $72 feed me menu and although it was nice is was not value for money. Every feed me menu I have had before includes desert and this was only entrees and mains. Nothing really special for $72 per person. Nice curry and nice...food but for that price we walked out disappointed. Maybe the $59 menu is better value I’m not sure.More

Coming from South East Asia, we are very aware that assessments of what constitutes ‘good’ Chinese food are highly subjective so we managed our expectations. However we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the service. The food is a mix of...Chinese and Thai. The curries were outstanding, particularly the duck curry with lychee. Would go back just for this dish. In fact all the dishes ranged from good to excellent. The service was superb as well. Highly recommend.More

Culinary perfection! Owner explained family story of Chinese family in Malaysia and the fusion of cuisine cutlets, and the dishes her grandmother cooked for her bringing together South Asia and China. Very hard to choose as so many great dishes, but with some help (and...patience) I had prawn eggplant entree and Malay Baramundi yellow curry with eggplant and long beans - off the charts good.More

We were offered a table upstairs (near where the toilets are situated) but I found the stairs too daunting so we took a table downstairs. However, beware if you do not like very steep stairs! The food was excellent and the service very prompt and...courteous. Parking a car in this part of Adelaide is a real challenge, however. Perhaps a taxi is warranted.More
