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.

Directed by my wife to book a table for my birthday the previous evening with no idea about the venue. Was absolutely delighted with the whole experience. The setting and atmosphere were very spacious and comfortable. The staff were extremely efficient, knowledgeable and fun. Then...there was the food! We had the banquet which included 3 vegan and two meat eaters. The chefs were definitely up to the task of creating terrific taste sensations for our special needs. Lastly the drinks selection had everything covered. Top quality, had a great night.More

Walking in we were immediately by the pretty decor. It was interesting yet comfortably. This is a star - the banquet showcases the talent in the kitchen . A beautiful array of flavours through every course. The service was superb - Miranda was the epitome...of a professional in hospitality. Observant, informative and attentive to the table despite a busy Saturday night. It was a marvellous experience. Some might think it expensive but the quality of food and service is value for money. Definitely going to be visiting again. Highly recommend to surrounding locals, visitors to the area and going out of your way to enjoy. Thanks for a great experience.More

Sunday lunch ,, after reading the reviews we thought that go out for lunch, a bit disappointed, food was ok just lacked pizzazz , garnish on all dishes are spring onion and coriander, I thought that the flavours could have been I bit more intense,...staff were nice I think leggings shouldn’t be a dress code, there should be a higher standard or a uniform code for a restaurant at this level. Pleasant lunch nothing special,,More

What a find. Great location - large spacious seating and not crammed next to another table. Interesting and colorful decor. Music at a level you can still hear one another. The best however is the food - interesting, tasty. and different. It's a small menu...but done exceptionally well with a large wine/drinks list. Great friendly service at the table. Can highly recommend.More

We had a wonderful birthday experience at Fook Shing! 10 of us celebrated a birthday at Fook Shing with a banquet. A private space was set up and the Fook Shing team very kindly hung birthday decorations for us. A warm fire made the space...cosy and welcoming. The food was very, very good with the Asian Broth being a stand out. Outrageously good broth! At $68 per head the banquet was very good value for the quality of food presented. Plenty to eat. In fact, we couldn't finish our meals so the team kindly offered to pack remains to take out. All part of the team's excellent service. Highly recommend.More

Absolutely loved everything about our experience at Fook Shing! Very inviting and comfortable atmosphere, knowledgeable and friendly staff and absolutely incredible food. We had the banquet and savoured every dish. The oysters we had before the banquet were among the best I’ve ever had, so...fresh and creamy and the “side sauce” was so delicious I could have drunk a mug of it! We cannot wait to take friends and family there when they come to visit us in Kyneton. Thank you to the staff for making us feel so special on our anniversary!More

Service was atrocious. Rude wait staff (lady with short blonde wavy hair) that were terse like they were better than the clients. We were rushed out. The bill arrived before we even had dessert. Food was ok. Massaman curry was not cooked well.

Thank you, Fook Shing, for making our wedding lunch such a memorable occasion. Our group of 32 began our celebration on the outside deck under the shade of the large umbrellas and the beautiful trees thoroughly enjoying the excellent range of wine, cocktails, and beers...along with very fresh and tasty spring rolls. The set banquet that followed inside in the lower dining area was delicious and delivered at intervals allowing for maximum enjoyment. Everyone was so impressed with the variety and flavours. Congratulations to the chef. Thank you also to Rob and Tilly who were always attentive and provided excellent service throughout. Our local family and friends along with our guests from New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia were all very impressed. Highly recommended.More

We dined at Fook Shing and as always, love the ambience & food, we were celebrating a very special occasion last night, with two birthdays. We are so grateful to have such a wonderful restaurant close to home - Fook Shing is a standout, the...service is now excellent. By far the best within the surrounding areas. Fabulous menu to share plates and did I mention the cocktail list? Wines by the glass if needed - we bought bottles of regional wines.

Fook Shing has always provided a wonderful space to enjoy the incredible menu. The food is delicious, the menu fantastic - you can chose your own degustation. However, they are still on "training wheels". The many courses we ordered & expected to savour, where literally...thrown at us within 20 minutes. Between each course (& we got 2 at a time), we lost the enjoyment & felt like force feed chooks - we asked the young waitress each time to tell the kitchen to give us 10 minutes at least between courses. This did not happen - she didn't get it. We had to send the main course back after being served immediately on top of everything else. This really has to improve as it ruined the entire night and there weren't second sittings for our table, so we didn't need to be treated as we were assumedly meant to be pushed out the door. We were scoping it out for friends to bring them to enjoy the experience but now reconsidering it.More
