We had a great experience from the minute we booked in the afternoon. Our waitresses were very helpful and pleasant to us and we enjoyed lots of little chats with them. The food is expensive but it would b the nicest Chinese I have ever...More

Expensive! Waited ages for our meal, food not that great, service very slow, waitress unfriendly and unhelpful, which is most unusual as everywhere else in the area was the opposite!

Ordinary chinese food that you'd expect for a quick lunch break turns into spending a fortune. Certainly overpriced. Not recommended

The fried rice was very nice but that's where it ended. Asked for Satay King Prawns, the prawns were tiny and not fresh. The beef was just awful.

Cost a lot for what you got, Food was tasty but really incredibly small servings. Didn't think wontons could be made that small. Prices more appropriate for a high class restaurant. Feel like we paid triple the value just for the location. Went away hungry...More

Been looking forward to this Chinese food but they never answer the phone. I tried for a week to call and their doors are always locked despite signs saying open 7 days. I gave up and tried the other good restaurants in Palm cove

Tasty but unfortunately not worth the $. When a $28 beef and black bean comes to the table in under 3 minutes from ordering it shouldn't be a $28 meal. However the taste is good as well as service. Only real Chinese option in Palm...More
