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.

This Chinese Restaurant is prominently located on the highway through Bendigo. Parking will be an issue for you here, so perhaps park in the side street and walk to the restaurant. Service was exceptional. I believe this is not suited to people with mobility issues...if you are grabbing takeaway because there are stairs to navigate, but I believe if requested they would work around that for you. The place is in an old building which adds character. Value is questionable... the prices are a bit high, BUT the food is really tasty and they do not shirk on serving size. I would definitely return to this restaurant.More

We were so looking forward to a delicious Chinese meal at a 5 Star (according to their website) restaurant for Mother’s Day. The food arrived quickly but was not the Chinese food I’m familiar with. Each dish tasted like the others. Admittedly they were generous...but tasteless. The lemon chicken had no taste of lemon with large chunks of chicken wrapped in a thick batter. The prawns with vegetables tasted bland, the fried rice was boring and all in all it was a great disappointment. The mains were from $22 and $35 for the beef and prawn dishes, far roo expensive for a mediocre meal. I believe Australians have a sophisticated pallet and deserve to be served authentic dishes, not something that was served in the 1960’s. Needless to say we won’t be visiting this restaurant again, especially when Bendigo has some fantastic Chinese and Asian restaurants.More

After finding that our usual Chinese restaurant was only doing take-away, we stumbled across this place. To be honest, I didn't even know it was there but what a nice surprise it was! The meals very very generous in size and a delight to my...tastebuds! I did notice on the menu that they require 24hr notice for Peking Duck and will make sure that this happens next time we visit. Can't wait to go back again!More

Good clean fresh food. Traditional aussie version of chinese food (lemon chicken, mong beef etc) but very tasty. 2 guys 4 mains to share....all came out at exactly the same time...which was ok....but if you were doing the same, I suggest you ask them to...stagger the mains....I will go back next time I am in town. The manager is a good guy who went out of his way for us. So absolutely recommend if you are hanging for “country town chinese”. mains about $22 each and good size.More

Orders 4 meals as a take-away. The food was prepared quickly and was very tasty. There were little extras like peawn crackers included with the supplied meal. Well recommended

Ordered a chilli soup which had a residual sugar taste.. The Cantonese noodles looked discusting. The dish was tasteless, a slimy brown Color and clumped together rice noodles. Sichuan crispy steak was mostly dough. The amount of steak was minuscule.

Somewhere between 1970 and now, this had a golden era. Now it’s just a crazy Chinese domain It’s worthy of a visit just to enjoy the ambience The food was okay

The restaurant is easily seen on the main road and there is plenty of street parking nearby. The service was friendly and efficient, the food very tasty. We had a 2 person banquet, an easy way to have a good meal.

Went here because it was close to our motel and could not have been happier with the food, service and atmosphere. The restaurant is spotlessly clean, the staff were beautifully mannered and helpful, and this is one of the very few Chinese restaurants that allow...two people to share a banquet. We had the mini-banquet A which was just delicious and big enough to fill us to bursting. Loved it.More
