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 was, no hands down, without a doubt, the worst chinese we have ever had. Having travelled a long way that day, we were after a nice early takeaway meal ... shame it ended up in the garbage. We ordered early at 5.30 to avoid...the evening rush. Maybe that was our mistake. The food was like warmed over bain maree slops, possibly left from their lunch trade. Bland and soggy, totally lacking in any chinese flavourings.More

Located right next door to the Atherton Motel it is a spacious restaurant with an extensive menu. Service was fast and friendly and they could accommodate without a reservation.

Great food. Great service. Great staff. The meals were excellent and we didn’t have to wait too long. Sometimes when go to restaurants you can’t swing a cat but this has room to move. Good selection of drinks to add with the great food. Sit...back relax after a day on the roadMore

What a shame. The restaurant was well presented and the menu looked enticing. But the food was simply flavourless. Don’t waste your money

The food was fresh and well cooked. Sadly, the flavours are those reminiscent of what the Chinese served up to the Australian palate in the last century. Too much gluggy sauce, not enough punch or variety in the flavours, not even a piece of kai...lan / choi sum / bok choi on the menu. I can get better food from the hawker stalls in Singapore or even Bali. As one of the few restaurants in town, this one should be a shining star. Sadly, it is not, in my opinion.More

This is a very traditional Chinese style restaurant, it provides great service, my Chinese friend ordered the set menu, it included a range of soup, entree, mains and deserts. The sizzling Mongolian Lamb was the best and had a traditional flavour unlike most Chinese restaurants...in the area. The deep fried Duck in plum sauce was fantastic, it reminded my friend of duck meals (Xiang Su Ya Zi) she had in China. The set menu was well worth the money.More
