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.

We had the most delicious dinner at this restaurant! We started with complimentary prawn crackers, then chose a selection of main meals and fried rice followed by dessert. The jasmine tea was a nice addition! Highly recommend.

Everything was seamless from the time we arrived until we left. The staff and service were excellent. The food was delicious & the quality was superb. The serving sizes were plenty. Highly recommend this restaurant. It’s BYO and we didn’t get charged corkage. Excellent!

13 of us had a feast tonight. I asked each person what they would score the restaurant from five. I had twelve people say 5 out of 5 and one day 3 1/2. When questioned the person who gave a 3.5 said it was because...he chose the wrong dish, so in reality everyone gave a 5 from 5. I had Pepper Scallops which were very good. Normally a restaurant is a bit skimpy with the number of scallops - not in this case, there were plenty. 👍👍👍More

Chicken Fried rice was dry with uncooked chicken, shredded ham and a few peas. The place looked and felt dirty, especially the toilets. The waiter was friendly but almost never around. A child came and took our payment. I’m really confused that they have so...many good reviews because our experience was awful. Even my tea tasted bad, how do you mess up tea!More

Our first night in New Norfolk and wanted somewhere ‘nice’ to eat dinner. Although this restaurant did not look very inviting from the outside, we gave it a try due to the positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff who gave good service. Our...food came quickly and tasted delicious. Interior decoration had a smart but authentic feel too. We would come again.More

Very nice staff, extensive menu including the usual sweet and sour pork and 'Australian Meals'. The lovely family who own the place would, I am sure, venture off the menu for something more traditional Chinese if asked.

We were recommended by Lydia at Colony Inn to eat here and we weren’t disappointed. Mongolian lamb, sweet & sour pork with friend rice. Very tasty. Doesn’t look much from outside but young staff very friendly, efficient and professional.

We were impressed with the service, however our spring rolls and sweet and sour pork were very average. The mongolian beef was very yummy but unfortunately one out of three won't see us coming back for another meal.

8 of us dropped in without a booking on Sunday. It was quite busy, front staff young girl and boy in their late teens very enthusiastic which made up for some skills. Started slow, but they got up to speed quick, we picked two entrees...and 8 dishes plus desert. Food - excellent, fried rice a little uninteresting but everything else was surprisingly good. Garlic and Ginger prawns were a stand out so was the Crispy Chicken with with Spicey Salt. Price average at $40 a head, it is BYO. Be patient and you will be rewarded.More
