Over the years I have been going to both Happy Garden and Kam Fay. I have to say that Happy Garden trumps it, as the quality of the food at Kam Fay has been on the decline over the year. The food at Happy Garden is authentic Chinese Food, and is both always hot and delicious! I would highly recommend... More

The food is nice and well prepared, with a few exceptions in the entrees. The service is ok. The main problem is that is a big place and the air conditioned do not works properly, and this is a problem than happens for years and with the scorching temperatures we have in Queensland, it spoils your meal. The day we... More

Sadly the dim sims were luncheon meat, two mains were cold, one wasn't what we ordered oh and they charged us corkage on a bottle we brought from them! Sham

I was a little apprehensive when i saw the reviews on TA for this place, however, maybe we got luck or something has changed as we ordered a fair amount of take away food and we could not fault a single dish. It was all tasty, hot and used fresh ingredients. The restaurant itself looked sterile and soulless though.

The menu is never-ending and the food is traditional and tasty but the service is minimal and cold and the atmosphere is very clinical. Would rather get take away than sit in the restaurant.

Took ages for the meal to arrive. The Mongolian beef was delicious, but I had to ask for rice (the waiter didn't ask when we ordered). The dim sims were dry, horrible in fact. I was told they were a popular dish - had to ask for soy sauce. Only ate half of one dim sim, told the waiter, still... More

Ordered a take away from this restaurant. When I arrived to collect it on a Friday night the restaurant was empty but with lots if people collecting take away meals, so I anticipated a good meal when I arrived home. What a disaster!!!! The Satay prawns consisted of raw onions and opaque prawns! It was nasty! The chicken and vegetables... More

It has been a while since I have been to this Chinese Restaurant. We used to go regularly, but it just got worse and worse. Needless to say, we haven't been back lately. I have never particularly enjoyed the setting as it's open, noisy and rather unattractive, but if the food is ok, one overlooks many things. However, the last... More
