Good service. Good serves and reasonable taste. Reasonably priced. The trap was the $1.50 charge to use eftpos. No way that is a cost covering charge.

We had takeaway on two occasions and the food was hot and fresh and delicious both times. I like the sauces on the side in a separate container as they do here, and their own sweet and sou and lemon sauces are excellent.

Nothing fance about the decor, which I have found often signifies good chinese food. True at this restaurant. Has to be our favourite value for money chinese in the state. Every dish we have tried and its been a lot, does not disappoint. Don't eat here if the decor is more important than the food.

After reading the reviews, I decided to take a chance on this restaurant. I ordered takeaway, it wasn't the best Chinese food I've ever had by a long shot, but it wasn't the worst.

This Chinese restaurant might not have the most modern decor but it has really good wholesome Chinese food at very reasonable prices. We went with two friends and chose the banquet for $27 per head. That gave us a soup (which came in a tureen with enough for 10 people), a mixed entree, our choice of 4 main courses from... More

We have been to China itself on 4 occasions and found here the quality and quantity better. We very pleased with our order at Chung Wa. We chose a set table to the rear and ordered deep fried pork with Schwann sauce served separately, special fried rice, tea, chicken and corn soup, beef and veg in oyster sauce, and chop... More

Went for lunch on the long weekend (Sunday) and were the only ones in the restaurant. We were escorted to the back because we had a pram. Food came out quite quick and all dishes tasted very bland and not strong in flavour. Overall was good but the problem started about 20mins after we arrived people were coming in for... More
