Hearty servings and well prepared food at an affordable price. Great place to head to after a long day at work. Very simple, clean, seating for about 25. BYOB.

Now here's a novelty, real Asian food in an Australian Asian restaurant. Great value for money and authentic food - don't miss out on the handmade noodles. The service is friendly and helpful and the kitchen cranks out the true tastes of Asia. What a happy delightful place.

Don't expect amazing atmosphere or decor it's a basic interior, functional tables & chairs. The staff were friendly & helpful. Very relaxed not sure if they have a booking system, our group just turned up and were welcomed! Fresh Spicy & great for sharing. Rate the dumplings & spicy seafood & eggplant. Will definitely go back.

Went there looking for pho and Vietnamese food as their name suggests. Not much to choose from, with the majority of dishes looking like standard Westernized Chinese meals. Chose chicken rice paper rolls - rice paper that immediately fell apart with tasteless chicken and lettuce, with a strange tasting dipping sauce. A couple of bites and could not finish them....

This has always been one of our favourites. Quality food at reasonable prices. However, visited on Saturday night and was disappointed. My husband had the Laksa which he didn't finish as it was very bland. Also, the dish I ordered was supposed to come with rice but they ended up forgetting the rice and when I asked for it they...

Authentic Northern Chinese cuisine. We have no idea why the connection with Vietnam and Pho as is isn't vietnamese at all. When we asked, the owners seem to have no idea either. None the less, the handmade noodles are to write home about. Ting Ling, Spicy Fish Soup, all the go. Our favourite waitress has been missing for a while... More

We eat here often. It is local to friends and just so easy to get a quick, cheap and tasty meal. Not so much Vietnamese by my judgement, bug ghe chinese food is good. In fact it reminds me of so many family run hole in wall restaurants in Hong Kong. Mama's in the back tiny kitchen cooking over a... More

Eat here all the time. The #67 braised eggplant is always ordered in multiple plates. It's an eatery, fast reliable and great value.

A little family run business. With the most amazing food in Wollongong. My favourite are the fried dumplings but everything is great if you're in Wollongong must try!!!!!

Stumbled on this place by chance on a day trip to Wollongong. It doesn't look like much from the outside. The interior, while clean, is a bit basic, but the menu seemed decent, and the prices were quite reasonable. We each ordered a dish and some fried rice. The servings were generous, and the food was very tasty and fresh.... More
