We finally made it to Tong Lock and we were not disappointed. First of all we had an air conditioned smoking/dining room. Good start, the wine was good and the food and service excellent. Enough curries or brai? Good call!

The Tong Lok was recommended by our host at Durban View Guest House and was within easy walking distance of the accommodation. The staff and owners were courteous and attentive. We chose one of their set menus, which was delicious! Thank you.

If you love Chinese food this is the place to go. Having tried many other venues, we keep going back to the above as it's really good food. Never had anything to complain about which is normally the case with other venues.

If you enjoy Chinese, Tong Lok is the best. Lovely intimate restaurant, excellent service. Chow mein is divine! Flavours are excellent. Felt good about paying for good food.
