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.

Called in for dinner on spur of the moment.Were the only two in restaurant until another couple came in as we were leaving.As waitress not busy service was fine and friendly.We shared:Curry puffs,Satay chicken[great sauce],Pan fried dumplings and Singapore noodles. Although nothing special we enjoyed our food and would have given this restaurant a rating of"good'had Tripadviser permitted.

Despite some review we thought it was great food. Best sweet and sour sauce ever combination omelette was good. Prawns in batter tasty . Rice was okay . Would recommend for sure. Maybe just have bell 🛎 to let you know you have people waiting. But great food

We had their takeaway fish and chips. The quality was excellent , far better than the other local fish and chip shops. The chips were especially good. Sets a new standard for fish and chips n Inverloch !

Had takeaway dinner for 3 tonight, was told 10 -15 mins, waited 50 mins, and cost over $100. The sweet and sour fish was the worst I'd ever eaten, was nothing but frozen tasteless mush, had one bite and binned the rest. Rice was dry and overcooked, again no flavour! Everything tasted like it was microwaved. U people should be ashamed. U take peoples money, but give them dog $h!+ in return. This place is an absolute joke, never going back. To the chef - get another profession as ur useless at this one. 🤢🤮

We have just left this restaurant and I need to put pen to paper in saying the won ton soup was so bland we could not eat it and sent it back. They then offered us chicken/sweet corn soup which I refused but was given anyway. Unfortunately this was bland with no taste as well. Again we politely sent it back. We then had an entree which was nice. We waited for over 30mins for our mains. The staff member came over and gave us the bill and said they would not give us our mains. This was because we did not think the soup was of a nice standard for any restaurant to be serving and sent it back. I cannot believe they refused to give us our main dishes because of this! That was appalling service from management. I work in tourism and have never been in any circumstances like this before. How embarassing. Some of these regional restaurants are screaming for tourism to help pick them back up, but this particular restaurant seems to think it is better than that and you either "eat what you get" without any qualms or "leave" Shame on you

Service was very slow and inept, food was almost inedible. We ordered chicken and vegetables with oyster sauce. The vegetables were in large chunks - broccoli, carrots and that well known Chinese vegetable, zucchini and almost raw. It wasn’t cheap and we’d never go back.

Went on a Wednesday night with a family of 5, restaurant was only a quarter full - so not busy at all. Had to go and grab a waitress to come and take our order. After 20 minutes, another waitress came over and said there was a mess up and they lost our order. So we had to order again. After another 25 minutes, the entrees finally came out - without any apology for the 45 minute wait!! The food was ok, however service was clueless. I assume the Chinese owner is in the kitchen, as the restaurant is run by young local girls who have no idea how to run a Chinese restaurant. When we asked for the bill, once again no apology for the stuff up and certainly no discount... I understand that mistakes happen, however no apology, no acknowledgement and completely clueless staff. We won’t be back

We had takeaway. The chicken satay was the worst we ever had. Chicken was large chunks and rubbery , not cooked enough and dry. The sauce didn't even taste like satay just like lemon. The rice was nice . We spent a lot of money and couldn't eat it. Staff were very friendly and helpful during the busy rush but you could hear the chef out the back arguing.

Way over priced. $24 just for a plate of sweet and sour chicken The banquet was even worse. Tiny servings The pork spare ribs would take you hours to chew it was that rubbery. So disappointing the 6 of us locals will not return

Ignore the bad reviews given about this restaurant. I have been eating there for 20 years. The food has always been excellent. Dont expect the cheapest menu and a waiter standing by your table as its a small country restaurant and when the town fills up at holiday time you can expect to wait a while as there is only one expert chef. But its worth it. Its by far the best Chinese restaurant in the district and yes i have tried all of them over the decades.

4/5 great service , food was very nice. After seeing bad reviews thought I would try. We had spring rolls, chicken satay sticks, fried rice, sizzling Mongolian steak , and honey chicken. Large dishes and taste was spot on.

We have eaten at Inverloch Chinese many times over the years usually with the food being quite good. Not so our latest meal. Spring rolls - one was hot like it had come directly from fryer, second was stone cold as in just come straight out of the fridge. Main courses were very salty. Fried rice lukewarm. Will not buy from again.

We went there tonight for dinner. We ordered our meal and the entree was served and the power in the whole area went out. They offered us the option of takeaway due to no lighting in the dining area. We were happy to eat our meal with the torch light the owner supplied. The meal was excellent. Great service under very trying circumstances. We will be back for sure

We visited Inverloch for the weekend. Friends wanted Chinese for dinner. What a great decision. The meal was lovely. Others had lemon chicken and said it was the best they’ve ever had. All meals were great. Young waiter there was amazing I must say. Very tentative. Extremely well mannered. Was a pleasure to see someone so young doing such a great job. Staff were all very pleasant and we had a lovely evening. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed. We certainly weren’t.
